Fokker F.28 Mark 0070, PH-KZB


The aircraft was taxied onto Stand 214C (centre) using the right engine with the left engine shut down and the APU running. As soon as the right engine was shut down, there was a strong smell of electrical burning and smoke began to accumulate on the flight deck. Following a brief discussion with the Cabin Service Supervisor, the aircraft was evacuated. An engineering investigation identified that the emergency inverter cooling fan capacitor, was completely burnt out. This had released smoke and fumes into the flight deck area.
