Buzz Boeing 737 MAX Evacuated at Stockholm Arlanda…
It is understood that the Buzz Boeing 737 MAX affected by this incident at Stockholm Arlanda was SP-RZG.
As per data from Planespotters.net, SP-RZG is a 2.6 year old airframe that was delivered to the Ryanair subsidiary back in November 2021.
Of the 737 MAX 8 variant, Buzz has 13 of them, of which all are in active service and host an average fleet age of 2.5 years.
SP-RZG was due to operate Ryanair flight FR4526 between Stockholm Arlanda Airport and Krakow in Poland.
The aircraft was getting ready to pushback when it was noticed that passengers started disembarking from passenger slides.
From there, fire crews attended the aircraft in Stockholm Arlanda to ensure the safety of all passengers who were onboard the airplane.
It was later noted that the cause of this emergency evacuation was due to the Buzz Boeing 737 MAX having smoke in the cabin.
According to @cy__aviation on Instagram, this incident resulted in the temporary closure of Stockholm Arlanda Airport, whilst the incident was being addressed.
At the time of writing (10/12/23 @ 1750 UK time), SP-RZG is still on the ground at the Swedish airport, and is presumed grounded for the time being whilst technicians look at what went wrong.
All eyes will be on when SP-RZG, the Buzz Boeing 737 MAX 8, will become operational again following this incident.
