PIA Boeing 777 undercarriage catches fire after landing
1 March 2005

A fire in the undercarriage of a PIA Boeing 777 forced the evacuation of all 333 passengers at Manchester Airport. PIA flight 789 had just landed after a flight from Karachi and was taxiing to the terminal when the incident occurred. The small fire was quickly put out. An AAIB report blamed four similar fires involving PIA jets last year on the wrong grease being used by the airline. (Manchester Online, BBC)
