Hi All,
Short video showing British Airways Boeing 747-400 catching fire in Castellon, Spain.
The aircraft is parked there since August 2020 and is supposed to be disassembled into small parts. Authorities believe that the fire in the cockpit region was caused by sparkles during the dismantling process.

  • Seems to be coming from the cockpit, could be an avionics fire. Sad to be honest. Although there will still be useful parts elsewhere on the plane. I mean it's good in a way it happened there and not in mid air

  • This should not count as an incident involving a British Airways plane as it was retired. The staff dismantling the plane probably were using tools or equipment that caused sparks and this started a fire.

  • How much do you bet it was triggered by a battery

    R GR G2 mesi fa
    • Nil, tools/equipment used during dismantling.

  • You work hard all your life, and as soon as you get a chance to retire... it all goes up in smoke. “The Queen is dead. Long live the Queen!”.

  • In the event of a loss of cabin pressure, please grab one of the cabin crew, pull them down firmly and breath normally. When aircraft retire, they are normally scrapped and broken up. Given the Covid situation, I think a cremation is very appropriate.
