As you can imagine, there were some tense moments inside this Spirit Airlines flight that caught fire on the Atlantic City runway.
A bird apparently flew into one of the plane’s engines as the jet accelerated down the runway at Atlantic City Airport.
Inside the plane, the passengers mostly remained calm as they were forced to exit the plane using inflatable slides.
We can’t say enough about the professionalism of the Spirit Airlines crew who helped get the passengers off the plane. They should be commended for the way they behaved. They have been trained and prepared to deal with such an emergency.
Well done also to the passengers who have been the voice of calm and reason during what must have been a very frightening situation!
