Plane evacuated before take-off starts
An aircraft engine caught fire at Stockholm’s Bromma airport last night, aborting take-off and prompting the passengers to be evacuated.
A Saab 2000, a twin-engine turboprop, operated by Swedish airline BRA to fly to Umeå was taxiing towards the runway when the incident occurred shortly after 19:00.
“As the pilots were starting up the plane a flame emerged from one of the engines,” Emma Sandsjö, the carrier’s communications chief, told news agency TT. “We’ve had incidents where smoke was produced before. But I’ve no idea how common this is.”
Flygräddningscentralen, Sweden’s aeronautical rescue coordination centre, said the situation was quickly brought under control and was not an emergency. An investigation is underway.
