Dramatic photos show how real-life disaster could look at Doncaster Sheffield Airport
These dramatic photos show firefighters training their hoses on a jet engine which has burst into flames at Doncaster Sheffield Airport, in what was thankfully just a practice drill.
The images give a glimpse of how a real-life disaster could look at the airport, and show how hard firefighters work to prepare for any eventuality.
Firefighters from Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service’s Misterton fire station joined those on duty at the airport for the training exercise yesterday, Saturday, February 1.
Andy Horton, watch manager at Misterton, said: “We practised firefighting techniques on the simulated engine fire and then six of the Misterton crew entered the smoke-logged training simulator, wearing breathing apparatus, to search for and rescue missing ‘passengers’ (training dummies).

“All Misterton firefighters are on-call, meaning they have other full time jobs and serve their community during their time off. The airport firefighters, from white watch, were very welcoming, enthusiastic and professional.”
