WATCH: Ethiopian Airlines plane catches fire on tarmac at Shanghai airport

An Ethiopian Airways 777F cargo aircraft has caught fireplace at Shanghai Pudong Worldwide Airport. The fireplace seems to have erupted on the aircraft’s cargo deck earlier than ripping by the higher decks.

The blaze broke out Wednesday afternoon as airport fireplace crews rushed to the scene to cease the flames from spreading to the gangway and up into the airport. Eyewitness video from the scene reveals thick smoke billowing from the stomach of the plane.

There are not any reviews of accidents at the moment and airport authorities seem to have the scenario underneath management. 

In keeping with FlightRadar24, the aircraft’s registration ET-ARH final flew from Brussels Worldwide Airport (BRU) to Shanghai Pudong (PVG). 

The same incident wherein an Ethiopian Airways 787 caught fireplace at London’s Heathrow airport in 2013 was attributable to a battery fault.
