It didnt go off the runway Vicious boy. There were indications of a fire in the hold as the aircraft was inflight so it made an emergency landing into BRU. It came to a halt on the runway and after a discussion between the fire chief by the aircraft and the captain an evacuation was initiated!!! No injuries and very well handled by the crew although there is some discussion as to why it took the fire chief so long to advice the captain that he should evacuate. There was no smoke visible and a controlled evac with steps could have taken place in the time the crew waited for the fire chief!
