Thanks for your input 'Airboeing'.
Firstly, please state where you were at time of incident???????
I know where I was!
remember not too long ago a Pilot of a small twin after getting an indication of an engine going out after takeoff he cut one of the engines, but poor fellow shut down the working engine instead. We know the aftermath of that, but then he was at critical point of takeoff which requires a rapid responce in that situation.
But here the situation was far different...
I agree there are proceedures to be carried etc. I can recite if you desire?
"let good and common sense prevail"
But again where were you at point, have you ever been to STN. to witness a departure and see ground personnel and layout.
Also it was an APU fault, where is the APU situated in 200's, where are fuel, fluids etc, then what happens when you pull Fire handle. "ISOLATION of section!"
Non critical incident that turned out to be a spectacle and trauma for all involved and looking on.
On the funny side, not one passenger seem to have left anything on A/craft, man woman and child exiting slides with every possible belongings, kitchen sink and all!
It all comes but to the situation at time!
