LONDON – One of Emirates’ Airbus A380s has had its emergency slide deployed whilst on stand at Manchester Airport.
This does appear to be accidental, as the jetbridge is still connected to the aircraft at present.
According to data from RadarBox.com, the aircraft in question is A6-EUN, which arrived in Manchester at 0656 local time this morning.
The deployment of the emergency slides must have been a little after arrival, as the aircraft was due to depart at 0850 local time.
EK17, which is the lunchtime service, is currently on approach to Manchester Airport at this present time. However, the airport does have the ability to handle multiple A380s.
This is a developing story.
