The fire broke out in the nr.2 engine during final approach or landing. The flight crew executed the appropriate engine fire checklist and stopped the airplane on the runway. All occupants safely evacuated from the airplane.
An area of burning fuel had developed under the right hand wing. Wind blew the flames under the aircraft's fuselage, causing substantial damage before fire fighters were able to put out the fire.
F-OKNG was delivered to Anic Airways in 1993 after which it was leased to Aeromar in 1994; in 1997 it moved to Pantanal as PT-MFI
