A Korean Air Lines plane was evacuated at Tokyo’s Haneda airport after an engine caught fire on Friday.
All 302 passengers and 17 crew members disembarked and there were 19 people with injuries a spokesman for Japan’s transport ministry said on Friday. The extent of the injuries isn’t known yet, he said.
The Boeing 777 plane was about to depart to Seoul from Haneda when the fire was noticed.
The runway remained closed while three other runways had reopened. ANA Holdings Inc. and Japan Airlines Co., the nation’s largest carriers, cancelled 277 flights, affecting about 55,690 passengers.
«We got up to about 70 or 80 per cent of the speed required to take off and then they slammed on the brakes,» Jack Harrison, a 37-year-old student at the International Christian University west of Tokyo, who was on flight KE2708.
«For the next 20 seconds there was a little sliding left and right. There was a little bit of screaming and shouting, but nothing excessive.»
The fire was put out, Kyosuke Okada, a spokesman for Japan’s transport ministry said, and the remaining passengers returned to the terminal building.
Korean Air said it is investigating the cause of the fire, according to a statement from the Seoul-based company.
Korean Air’s most recent accident was in 2000 when a flap from a Boeing 747 freighter aircraft broke off and punctured the fuselage leaving a one-meter hole, according to the Aviation Safety Network website. There were no fatalities from that incident, Aviation Safety said.
«The only moment my heart rate went up was when the flight attendants started shouting for us to go down the chutes,» said Harrison, who was waiting to board a special flight put on by Korean Air to take the passengers to Seoul. «Apart from that it was relatively calm.» A\W
En febrero, Davies se declaró culpable de transmitir información falsa sobre un dispositivo que podría destruir o dañar una aeronave sobre el incidente ocurrido en octubre de 2014. Y ahora, que ha evitado una pena de prisión, con el juez de distrito Michael Mosman lo condenó a cinco años de libertad condicional en la toma transmitido durante el fin de semana. También debe pagar una restitución de KLM.
SEAN Davies was feeling down about himself, and decided the perfect pick-me-up would be for everyone to think he was a hero.
So the 23-year-old from Oregon, US, came up with a bizarre plan to make this happen — on a plane.
He chose KLM Royal Dutch Airlines Flight 569 from Amsterdam to Kilimanjaro, Tanzania as the scene of the “heroism”.
Davies planted a fake bomb in the lavatory and about three hours into the trip, he alerted the crew to a strange wire that was sticking out of a cabinet in the bathroom. It — and other cables — were attached to a miniature wine bottle.
The captain was pretty sure that it was all just a prank, but he diverted the plane with 271 passenger on-board to Cairo after discussing the situation with KLM security.
However, the cluey flight crew weren’t fooled by Davies’ attempt at heroism, straight away suspecting that he had been the one who planted the device.
When the plane landed he was interviewed by Egyptian authorities but denied the claims and continued his trip. Two months later he was interviewed again by police in Amsterdam while changing planes on his return trip from Africa to the US.
Again, he denied it, putting his frequent trips to the bathroom down to being an alcoholic with kidney stones, and saying his iPhone charger caught alight while in Africa.
Once in America, he was met by the FBI and agreed to take a polygraph test. Then later on, he declined but the polygrapher told him the test wasn’t necessary, because it was obvious he was lying.
Davies then confessed, saying he wanted to appear a hero so built the fake bomb with a wine bottle, an e-cigarette battery, water, soap, an iPhone charging cord and the earphones distributed on the flight.

In February, Davies pleaded guilty to conveying false information concerning a device which could destroy or damage an aircraft over the October 2014 incident.
And now, he has avoided a prison sentence, with US District Court Judge Michael Mosman sentencing him to five years probation in decision handed down over the weekend.
He must also pay restitution to KLM.
“I do want you to understand that this arrest and this conviction really are an arrow in life pointing you to a terrible place,” Mr Mosman warned. “And only by your own actions can you get off that path.”
Davies has received treatment for alcoholism and now has a steady job as a jewellery salesman.
He has apologised to the airline, fellow passengers, his family and the US Government, saying he’s no longer the irresponsible “boy” who committed that act.
“They say you never learn if you don’t make mistakes. While my mistakes have been a little larger than what I would like, I needed to have this kick so I could realise the path I was headed on.”
KLM calculated its losses from the incident to be $117,220, and Davies has already paid half the money. A\W

Russia is allocating 100 billion rubles ($1.5 billion) from the state budget for the construction of Il-114 and Il-96-400 planes, the Meduza news agency reported Friday, citing Russian Trade and Industry Minister Denis Manturov.
The first Il-114 planes, intended for local airlines, are expected to be ready by 2019, Manturov said. The ministry will spend 50 billion rubles on Il-114 planes before 2025.
The remaining 50 billion will be used to build Il-96-400 long-haul planes, Manturov said, adding that six planes of this type will be supplied to the State Transport Leasing Company before 2021.
According to Manturov, President Vladimir Putin personally chose Il-114 over four models of regional aircraft offered by the Ministry, the Interfax news agency reported.
The Ilyushin Il-114 twin-engine airliner was designed in the 1980s for local routes and made its first flight in 1990. After that, plans for the serial production of Il-114 planes — supposed to be launched in Uzbekistan — fell through with the collapse of the Soviet Union.
Il-96-400 is a modification of the Il-96 — the first Soviet long-haul wide-body aircraft designed by the Ilyushin design bureau in 1980s. A\W

Amid strong claims for the price of Argentinian airport system, Transport Minister Guillermo Dietrich, she announced a low cost of Intercargo, the state company that provides ground services to aircraft.
It was not all. Dietrich denied 10 times over and there are plans to privatize Aerolíneas Argentinas and said yes it works hard to lower the dependence on subsidies that has the state company. «It is absolutely false that there are plans to privatize the company and they think a policy of open for the country heavens,» said the minister when asked at the Aviation Day, which was held yesterday at the Hilton hotel, organized by the International Air Transport Association (IATA).
The announcement was timely. Intercargo rates has become 150% more expensive than the region and are even above those charged in London or New York. «Argentina applies one of the most expensive rates in the region. So you can not walk to development,» said Regional President of IATA, Peter Cerda.
In the government they know this. So Dietrich gesture to announce aviators lower cost interpreted as a nod to a sector battered by the previous administration, especially by the whims of young camporistas. It was almost an official sign that the claims are on the agenda of the offices of the ministry. «Just serves, but not enough, but it is a small step that helps,» said the president of an international airline.
«Now the price is lowered dollar Intercargo by five percent. At this low will add another additional five percent. It’s a way to do something more competitive Argentina,» said the minister.
Shortly thereafter, President of Intercargo, Mario Dell ‘Acqua gave details to the La Nación (lanacion.com.ar). He said that will be implemented between September and October to be studied next and what kind of service deserves rebates apply. «It will be a straight discount of five percent, but then look if in some areas becomes more and some less. But the average is that, five percent,» he said.
Dietrich was still out there. He said both the government and the airlines work to make the company viable and looking in detail each of the expenses of the airline. «Silver is all. And we all know the fiscal situation of the country. The best way to sustain the company is to make it sustainable. For this work, and in fact, the numbers of the first quarter are the best in a long time,» he added. He added that Argentina is working to double the cabotage passengers.
Here was the entire local industry. The minister was one of the first to speak and stayed until noon when, sitting among the tables, he heard the CEO of Aerolíneas Argentinas, Isela Costantini. «We took a company that had no management. So there are many opportunities to improve processes and lower the deficit,» he said. Opting then said he has no balances since 2008 and are in the process of completing Aerolíneas 2014 and 2015. «We are working to streamline fleet we inherited and bought without a business plan behind,» said Costantini.
There were many details about future steps: it was no wonder, listening all the competition. Then yes, some winks to employees of the company. «I found a very committed group, is a company that employees themselves want much. The challenge is how to transform this commitment into something sustainable,» he concluded. A\W
