Plane Explodes in Japan

Passengers sitting on a run way waiting for their plane to park, were surprised by an explosion that happened only one minute after the plane stop moving. 165 passengers including the pilot, who jumped out at the last minute, escaped without injury.

There wasn't any distress call or mayday before the plane landed, according to the traffic controller. The fire was put out in under one hour. Flights to and from Japan are probably discounted :)

I thought it was amazing that anyone got off that plane, based on the video I saw off the morning news (while I was waking up and getting dressed). So much smoke, not so much plane.
