Engine Fire Prompts Emergency Plane Exit
Occurred on October 2, 2021 / Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA
Info from Licensor: "On Spirit Flight 3044, from Atlantic City to Ft Lauderdale, we were speeding up down the runway, about 10 seconds from liftoff, when the entire plan started shaking like crazy. People were screaming and crying. Then everyone from the middle and back of the plane started yelling FIRE! The right-side engine was spitting flames everywhere. Once we came to a stop, the doors flew open, and the slides deployed. Fire Rescue was there spraying down the engine with foam before I was even out of the plane, and I was seated in 1A."
