Narrative:
A 48-year old man suffered serious burns in an aircraft fire at North Weald, Essex, UK. The incident happened shortly after 7.20pm on the runway of North Weald Airfield when a twin engine aircraft caught fire.

Four fire engines were called to the blaze, which included two foam pumps from Stansted. Firefighters used foam and dry powder to put out the fire, which was extinguished just after 8.05pm. The man was put in the care of the ambulance service.

Aircraft presumably deemed at a later date to be damaged beyond economic repair, as the registration N41098 was cancelled by the FAA on March 31 3014
