    A British Airways jet has caught fire at Las Vegas airport, sending smoke billowing into the air.
    The plane – a Boeing 777 – could be seen with flames around its fuselage.
    There were 159 passengers and 13 crew on board. Two people were treated for minor injuries as a result of the fire, which involved a flight that was due to fly from the US city’s McCarran airport to Gatwick.

    It was not immediately clear what had caused the blaze, which was quickly put out by emergency services.

    Dramatic images of flight 2276 were shared on social media by members of the public at the airport, which is five miles south of downtown Las Vegas.

    Hard to tell but it looks like the engines caught fire. I wonder if Boeing will ground all 777's?

    Wow! People actually took their BAGS off too? WTF?

    If that plane was on fire and some asshole was holding up the line getting his bag out of the overhead compartment, I'd shove his ass right towards the door. Fuck that shit! Peoples' lives are at stake!

    I recently read a book about the Andrea Doria sinking in '56, and there were accounts of passengers trying to get on the lifeboats with their luggage. :facepalm:

    No need for that, the engine has proven very safe, plus they are designed to disintegrate and keep the fire contained to the engine itself and not spread.....apparently it works.

    Wow these pilots were pretty calm. Here is the Air Traffic control communications. https://clyp.it/jrvdzhrw

    (oh just so you know the radio callsign for British Airways is Speedbird)
