Two Aircraft Fires in the States

                    BREAKING NEWS

Two aircraft fires with the last 5 hours in the States

The first one which has happened around 45 minutes ago from writing this was FED EX flight 910 from Memphis, Tennessee, where FedEx is based; crashed on landing in Fort Lauderdale Hollywood Airport (IATA: FLL - ICAO: KFLL). The aircraft, a DC 10 with the registration N370FE (CN 46608) crashed when the left hand undercarriage collapsed on landing. The pilot and co-pilot escaped unharmed by using a rope ladder on the right side of the aircraft.

The second one was an American Airlines jet which caught fire moments before take off at O'Hare International Airport (IATA: ORD - ICAO: KORD), prompting the crew to abort takeoff and evacuate passengers via emergency chutes. The takeoff of American Airlines Flight 383, a Boeing 767-323 with the registration N345AN (CN 33084) bound for Miami with 161 passengers and a crew of nine, was prompted by an "engine-related issue," the airline said.
The Federal Aviation Administration cited a blown-out tire reported by the flight crew as the plane was rolling down the runway before takeoff was aborted. All passengers and crew walked away uninjured.
