Target: Dynamic Airways Chief Executive Officer Paul Kraus
Goal: Enforce thorough safety protocols and procedures on domestic aircraft models to prevent deadly accidents.
A plane recently caught fire on a runway during departure from the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Florida, carrying 101 people. The pilot of the plane driving behind the Dynamic Airways’ Boeing 767 aircraft bound for Caracas, Venezuela reported fuel leaking from the plane before it caught fire, and passengers quickly evacuated from both sides of the plane via slides onto the taxiway. Emergency officials responded in two minutes, and the plane was evacuated within six minutes.
According to a spokeswoman at the scene, 17 people were taken to the Broward Health Medical Center. Among the passengers transported to the hospital were a child and a trauma patient. Two of the 17 admitted to the hospital have been treated and discharged, and nothing has been heard from the remaining hospitalized passengers.
The airport was closed while emergency officials responded and was reopened around two and a half hours after the fire occurred. Since the time of the incident, there have been 111 delayed and 47 cancelled flights at the airport. Tell the Chief Executive of Dynamic Airways to implement stricter safety regulations on their domestic aircrafts to ensure this never happens again.
Dear Dynamic Airways CEO Paul Kraus,
Recently, a startling accident occurred on the runway of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport when one of your aircraft burst into flames during its planned departure. The pilot of the aircraft driving behind your company’s Boeing 767 reported fuel leaking from the back of the plane just before it reportedly burst into flames at 12:30 pm on October 29. Seventeen of the passengers evacuated from the plane were sent to the nearby Broward Health Medical Center for their injuries, including a child and a trauma patient, and only two of them so far have been discharged.
Emergency officials were said to have responded after two minutes of the flames’ appearance, and the plane was completely evacuated after six minutes. The airport was closed for a minimum of two and a half hours while the plane and runway was cleared and faced 111 flight delays and 47 cancellations on the same day as the fire. From now on, it is imperative that you strictly enforce more thorough safety protocols and regulations on your domestic aircrafts in order to guarantee the safety and convenience of both your customers and your employees.
