In the last few moments at Dublin Airport, a private jet has evacuated its passengers following a rejected takeoff.
D-AEOT is a Embraer Legacy 600 aircraft, which belongs to Air Hamburg, as per data from Planespotters.net.
The aircraft is 14.8 years old at the time of writing, and started out life with Al Jaber Aviation in May 2009, before being handed over to AirX Charter in October 2014 and then on to Air Hamburg in June 2020.
At this stage, it is unclear what the reason for the evacuation, which appears to be on an active taxiway at Dublin Airport.
