Blazing plane at Munich Airport


Amateur video shot by a passenger at Munich's airport shows a plane catching fire and passengers fleeing from the burning aircraft.

Those who left from the back of the plane used a stairwell to escape, but passengers nearer the front were seen leaping down onto the runway.

The passenger who shot the video was sitting in a nearby plane and took it through the window.

A Munich airport spokesman said the plane's left undercarriage briefly caught fire. No cause for the incident has been discovered yet and no-one was reported injured.
