Boeing 757-204, G-BYAT
Shortly after arriving on stand at Glasgow International Airport, and after passenger disembarkation had commenced, the flight and cabin crews noticed an acrid smell throughout the aircraft. The senior cabin crew member then ordered an evacuation over the passenger address system. The cabin crew deployed the emergency evacuation slides at both rear doors and a total of 43 passengers exited the aircraft using the emergency evacuation slides. Four passengers received minor injuries. The flight crew were not aware that an evacuation had been initiated until after the event. The electrical burning smell was traced to the right recirculation fan.
