British Airways Boeing 747 catches fire at Castellón Airport
A decommissioned British Airways Boeing 747 stored at Castellón Airport (CDT), in Spain suffered extensive damage after a fire started in the cabin for an unknown reason.
The British Airways Boeing 747-400, registered G-CIVD, had been the first of the carrier’s Jumbo Jet fleet to be retired. It flew to Castellón Airport on August 18, 2020, and had been stored there since then while waiting for its dismantling.
But on November 23, 2020, firefighters from the airport were called to intervene on the giant aircraft, as a fire broke out in its cabin. Local emergency teams from the Provincial Firefighters Consortium were mobilized as reinforcement. Planes parked near the burning aircraft were towed away.
The fire was eventually extinguished. “There have been no injuries to regret and the fire is already confined,” Castellón Airport reported.
