It's the 'Evacuation' alarm. Standard practice to activate it once the 'Evacuate' call from the flight deck has been made. Then again, it's a flight from Glasgow so it could well be the shoplifting alarm on the doors.....

Pilots left it in Reverse Gear?!

That's given me the best laugh of the thread. It must be the button next to the ejector seats on the centre pedestals?

Most aircraft have it installed on the overhead panel actually.

It's definitely the "Emergency Evacuation Alarm (Signal)".
It's not part of the flightdeck SOP's to activate it in an evacuation....but if it was in the "Armed" position in the flightdeck, it's possible that the cabin crew activated it on their panel.
Not too sure if it's one of their SOP's if the system is fitted.

Two sensible responses to a question about the 'beeping noises' in the video. Your comments are just making you look like an idiot.

You come on here making definitive statements and so does your mate Bam that it is definitely an evacuation alarm when there isn't one fitted on the 737 Those other videos are not 737s. The sound you hear is the IRS alarm as stated previously.

Telstar....true.....not on the 300's !! The 800's are fitted with an Emergency Evacuation Signal.
How do I know this....'cos I've flown this particular aircraft.

Besides...the IRS warning is a steady "horn"....not a high pitch "beeping".

TGIF......

A passenger jet bound for Spain made an emergency evacuation this morning on the runway at Glasgow Airport.

Four people have been taken to hospital and thirteen treated at the scene for shock.

It's thought the panic started when the pilot announced there would be no bar service on the flight.

All Jet2 737-800's have evac alarms fitted. That's what you can hear.

Looks like a job very well done.

As usual though it appears people have taken bags with them during their exit looking at the lady coming down the slide in the video.

If anyone has Telstars address I'm willing to DHL him a large box of humble pie...

As jet2 said, a job well done. Perhaps we can get back to topic now.

Good to see some of the Punters assisting!!!

As a a 'piece of SLF' - I thank God that I've never had to 'evacuate' (though have experienced a couple of aborted take off's);

Re the questionable cameraman - doubtless if it had been a 'HOT' incident he may well have been considering his options!!!

But his film may be of some future use (hopefully in a training capacity)

And to me it appears at least a couple of the Punters were making themselves useful at the bottom of the slide though again if it had been a more serious incident del preservation mode may have been selected!!!

Still GOOD to see that Everyone got off more or less in one piece and that the CHAOS was 'ORGANIZED'!!!

Good skills to the crew. Any doubt, no doubt. Quotes of 'absolute panic' - at least he lives to tell the tale.

Alarm sounds like the left IRS on battery discharge. Comes on when you loose AC power, i.e. during an evac you will be on DC battery power so a battery discharge condition exists.

Unfortunately for Jet2 its not as simple as move on, this will probably be subject to an AAIB investigation and report because of the nature of the problem and of course the injury to pax in the evacuation.

Three are three likely sources of smoke 1) from the engine/A/c packs 2) from de icing fluid 3) the galley ovens (grease from the deep fried Mars bars)

In any event both Jet2 & the AAIB will want to get to the bottom of it and that will involve the AAIB trawling through Jet2 maintenance records for this aircraft

Whilst RTO are not uncommon full blow aircraft evacuations on the runway are and i'm struggling to remember the last one by a UK registered airline?
