All 379 passengers escape the huge fire

CNN has video of this. Unbelieveable that all survived on the JAL aircraft, kudos to the crew for their actions in getting everybody off the plane. This reminds me of an incident where everyone survived an mishap several years ago due to the actions of the crew. This is why you listen to that briefing prior to take-off.

Yes truly amazing that they were able to evacuate all the people on board the larger aircraft. Great video taken from inside the cabin at the moment of impact and subsequent evacuation. Footage shows the ARFF crews doing a phenomenal job of keeping Fire away from evacuation slides in order to allow occupant to escape A tip o da helmet to the ARFF crews.
