Omni Air International 767-300 blocked Shannon Airports runway after wheel fire!

Shannon Airport was forced to close for a number of hours earlier today after an air traffic controller noticed smoke and fire coming from an  Omni Air International Boeing 767-300's landing gear shortly before it was due to depart the Irish airport.

Upon the alarm being raised, the airport's fire service raced to the aircraft and extinguished the fire on the main landing gear.  All passengers and crew evacuated the aircraft via emergency slides, while it remained on the runway and were taken back to the airport's terminal.

There were no injuries reported and after the aircraft was made safe and examined it was moved off the runway and Shannon Airport reopened shortly after 11am this morning.  The Air Accident Investigation Unit confirmed that: "An AAIU go-team are responding to an occurrence at Shannon Airport, involving a Boeing 767 aircraft which was evacuated on the runway following a reported fire in a main-wheel well. Following consultation with the Shannon Airport Authority, the AAIU has given permission for the aircraft to be removed from the runway."
