    Default Jetliner burns on Okinawa; all 165 survive

    Jetliner burns on Okinawa; all 165 survive



    TOKYO, Japan (CNN) -- A Taiwanese jetliner burst into flames Monday morning shortly after landing at the Naha airport on the Japanese island of Okinawa, but 165 passengers and crew got off the plane safely, authorities said.


    The China Airlines jetliner caught fire at Naha airport on Monday.

    The Japanese Transport Ministry and the Naha Fire Department said the passengers included 155 adults and two toddlers. The crew was made up of 2 pilots and six flight attendants.

    According to the ministry, there was "some sort of explosion" on board the China Airlines Boeing 737, but no other details were immediate available. Japanese media reported that a passenger saw a fire in one of the engines before the blast.

    The Transport Ministry said the plane arrived in Okinawa from Taipei at 10:31 a.m. local time and stopped on the tarmac three minutes later to evacuate passengers. At 10:35 a.m., the fire department was called to the scene.

    This incident is the latest in a series of accidents involving China Airlines. Jetliners for the air carrier crashed in 2002, 1999, 1998 and 1994, killing more than 1,000 people.

    I'll add this to the list.

    Don't buy Chinese toys.
    Don't buy Chinese pet food.
    Don't fly in Chinese planes.

    And, Chinese Democracy will never happen.

    Although everyone got out of the Air France A340 in Toronto a couple years back but I know what you are saying. When I fly I sometimes get the urge to smack people across the head and tell them to listen to the safety instructions...at least the part about locating their nearest exit and their alternative exit. My ability to save myself is dependent on these morons that don't bother figuring out these important details.
