Chicago Crash Truck Dash Cam Videos of 767 Engine Fire

Found these in this /r/firefighting thread. Super-cool (and newly posted) dash cam videos of Chicago Fire Department crash trucks in action at O’Hare International Airport¬†on October 28, 2016.

The lengthy clips were filmed as crews responded to, attacked, extinguished, and returned from an uncontrolled engine failure and fire on a Boeing 767. Talk about a smoke plume!


Here’s the Wikipedia story of what happened, American Airlines Flight #383. With 170 souls aboard including nine crew, all survived. Twenty were injured.¬†
