Foam-sprayed jetA flight of British Airways has been sprayed with foam after its brakes suddenly overheated upon landing in Kiev triggering terror among passengers who thought the engine was on fire.

 

Fire crews immediately rushed to the scene once the plane made a landing after a flight from Heathrow arrived and doused the airplane in foam. The BA jet has been due for a swift turnaround and was scheduled to return to London. The passengers were thereafter led to safety.

 

Footage portrays that emergency crews were hosing down the plane.

 

One of the users of a microblogging site said that he feels nobody has been hurt and that BA claimed that the delay was on account of a ‘technical issue’. One of the British passengers getting ready to board the plane told a news media agency that through the large glass windows they were able to catch sight of the Ukrainian fire department spraying the plane with foam and smoke billowing from the engine.

 

Everyone was shocked since the plane still had passengers on board it, who had not been updated about it and therefore were quite anxious.

 

But then, the passenger also claimed that the Ukrainian airport staff have been quite awesome with keeping people calm and making efforts to arrange for alternatives. In a statement, British Airways said that their flight was capable of making a perfectly safe landing and customers disembarked normally.
