Sorry I made a mistake last night when I said the plane landed on runway 16/34 ! From where i was at the time of the incident it appeared like the plane had landed on runway 16/34 ! ! 16/34 was in operation for most of yeaterday! The Iberia actually landed on Runway 10/28 and was taxiing to its stand when it grounded to a halt ! I saw a small cloud of smoke coming form the rear of the plane and then an evacuation took place within a minute or two ! An Airport Fire jeep was first on the scene followed by the airport police and gardai ! An ambulance followed these but it took a while before a Fire Engine was deployed to the scene ! Id say it was nearly 10mins before one was deployed ! Serious questions are to be asked of the Airport Fire Service on why it took so long for a Fire Engine to be deployed ! The papers are exaggerating the incident big time ! What I have described above is exactly what happened !
