Travellers as fuel-leaking plane doused by firefighters

This is the moment passengers on board a plane leaking jet fuel screamed in horror after emergency services were forced to douse the aircraft – just moments before it was due to take off.

The short clip shows vast amounts of liquid spewing from one of the Airbus A321 plane’s wings.

The plane carrying 220 passengers was due to take off from Antalya, in south-eastern Turkey, and was heading for the city of Kharkiv in north-eastern Ukraine.

Passengers on board the plane can be heard discussing the leak in the mobile phone footage.

One woman is heard suggesting that the liquid could just be a dump of excess fuel, while another says it could just be water from the toilet.

As the plane continues to pull off along the runway, the leak shows no signs of stopping as the puddle underneath grows larger and larger.

A fire engine is then seen pulling up alongside the aircraft and dousing the wing with its own extinguisher.

A few women are heard screaming on the plane while others quickly hush them.

The passenger had to wait on the plane for a further 30 minutes before they had to get off. They were then made to wait at the terminal for the rest of the day while the plane was fixed.

According to reports, they were not updated throughout their delay but their second attempt went through without any problems.

Netizen ‘Dmitriy’ said: “Why are those idiots yelling? The plane hadn’t even taken off… Those women are hysterical.”
