Olympic Airways ATR-72 had an engine fire on the runway and then (due to the engine systems) apparently couldn't get off it . - was also allegedly a crew training flight according to the agent!
Caused utter chaos - happened about 0800z , airfield open approx 1400z. My lot ended up in CFU but managed to get back to UK in a duty day plus a bit of discretion.! This is what probably accounts for YOUR charter flight being late today in the UK!

Feel Sorry for the people that were stuck in the terminal building whilst all this was going on!!!

Just come back from there, and I have never seen such a comical and small terminal building. Not the sort of place where you want to be when 4 hour delays are being out....!!!!

Still at least you could get a pint of beer for 5 Euros!!!
