All passengers evacuated safely in two plane fires
BACK TO NEWS
A Singapore Airlines Boeing 777 caught fire on landing at Singapore airport on June 27th and all 241 passengers and crew were evacuated safely. On May 27th, 319 passengers and crew escaped safely when a Korean Air Boeing 747-400 caught fire during take off (which was successfully aborted) at Tokyo-Handeda airport.
Both fires apparently started in the airplane engines. These incidents, without injury or death, show the effectiveness both of fire safety standards in aircraft and of airport fire intervention organisation.
