Britsh Airways Fire: Mayday, Mayday, We’re Evacuating

Air Traffic Controllers in Las Vegas stay cool, calm, and collected when a British Airways Boeing 777 with 157 passengers and 7 crew reported a fire on board the aircraft.  Only 7 people were injured on the aircraft.  It was truly a tremendous feat by the flight crew, ATC, and first responders to ensure everyone’s safety.  Take a listen to the ATC audio as well as the video of the plane catching on fire.

After listening to the audio, you can hear that the controller was already taking action as she noticed the fire prior to British Airways even reporting it. Great job by all!
