SkyUp Airlines’ left main landing gear catches fire just after landing at Sharm El-Sheikh


On 9 November, a SkyUp Airlines Boeing 737-800 (UR-SQH) operated flight PQ7153 between Zaporizhzhia Airport, Ukraine and Sharm El-Sheikh Airport, Egypt. When the aircraft stopped at its parking position and Sharm El-Sheikh, hydraulic fluid leaked onto the hot brakes causing flames on the left main landing gear. Luckily, ground crew quickly extinguished the fire.
