  • Description

    UNNAMED WITNESS: "Well I was in the waiting room at Munich airport which is a small airport and only has one runway and I saw the aircraft taxiing out, the Elizabethan, I turned away, and I don't know. Ten seconds later I turned back and I saw huge billowing smoke at the edge of the aerodrome. I first didn't think it was an accident because there was no noise then there were two fires the second one on the left I think enveloping and involving a house."
