Fire after landing, Rotterdam The Hague Airport, 8 July 2013


After landing on runway 06 smoke and flames were visible near the left-hand main landing gear of the aircraft. Subsequently the fire spread to the left-hand wing. Because this wing is made of wood and linen, a big part of the wing burnt down. The fire was extinguished by the airport fire brigade. The pilot escaped unhurt.
