    An Expressjet Embraer ERJ-145 on behalf of United, registration N15973 performing flight EV-5912/UA-5912 from Peoria,IL to Denver,CO (USA) with 22 people on board, was cleared to land on runway 34R. Tower controller was issuing instructions to other aircraft when he interrupted in surprise at 08:33L (14:33Z) and exclaimed "he hit the lights" followed by "runway 34R is closed" instructing the next arriving aircraft to cancel approach clearance, maintain 9000 feet and continue on the localizer, all airport frequencies began to report an ongoing emergency on the airport, traffic on runway 34L and departures on runway 25 were also temporarily halted. The Embraer rolled out and stopped on the runway remaining there disabled, tower advised emergency services were deploying. The crew of another aircraft advised they were observing the landing and they had the impression the Embraer had hit the approach lights then touched down really hard but when they taxied closer to have a look onto the aircraft it didn't appear they would have struck the lights but they aren't sure, tower commented in response they'll have the approach and runway lights inspected. The Embraer was evacuated due to smoke on board.

    The airport reported the crew reported smoke in the cockpit, the aircraft was evacuated. One passenger was taken to a hospital, the extent of injuries was not known. The aircraft remained disabled on the runway, the runway was closed for 2.5 hours.

    The airline reported the aircraft was evacuated onto the runway because of smoke on the aircraft.

    The weather was crappy! Low ceilings and it was a mix of snow and freezing drizzle.

    Weather at the time....
    By Brian on Wednesday, Apr 4th 2012 04:47Z

    According to ADDS, the metars at 1422Z (8:22 MT) and 1440Z (8:40 MT) are as follows:

    KDEN 031440Z 32011KT 1/2SM R35L/3500V4500FT -SN FG SCT003 BKN011 OVC028 00/M01 A3018 RMK AO2 TWR VIS 3/4 P0004

    According to the last radar hit was at 8:31am at 6000' (approx 500-600 agl).

    Not a nice morning.

    weather?

    Anyone know what the weather was at time?

    Active Fire
    By Erik on Wednesday, Apr 4th 2012 02:56Z

    While listening to the emergency operations during the Alert, a firefighter made reference to an active fire in the cockpit, and deployed an agent to stop the fire. The firefighter then reported back to command that the Halon extinguished the fire. Then advised command of only seeing hot spots behind an electrical panel.

    The captain also mentioned to the fire chief that he activated the fire suppression system in the rear cargo pit. Another ARFF crew checked the rear pit, but only reported a haze from the Halon.

    Either way, MSA 360 around the airport is 9200'. 9000' isn't "a tad too high"

    By Paulo on Wednesday, Apr 4th 2012 00:30Z

    According to the charts (KDEN, ILS RWY 34R (Cat II or even CAT III), you should be at 10.000ft over BOOBU then descent to 9000' to be leveled at BENGL and then maintain 9000' till RLESS (about 4.7nm), following the G/S from there until you land at KDEN, MSL.

    Mile High City

    Denver is 5400 ft MSL.


    By John Doe on Tuesday, Apr 3rd 2012 21:37Z

    When referring to the 'next arriving aircraft', had the aircraft already intercepted the localiser at 9,000 feet (AAL presumably)? Surely that's a tad too high?

    Jeff Smisek for saving those passengers money on their air fare.

    I heard it was high engine vibration followed by smoke filling the cabin followed by low oil pressure and quantity. Possible ice ingestion if you look at the weather. The smoke may have been caused by engine oil entering the bleed air. All my speculation, of course.

    Sounds like those guys need a trip to the Super Bowl, and should write a book! Sounds like they were in a real shitty situation! Great Job to them!!

    An active fire in the cockpit doesn't sound like much fun to me

    What part of this speculation caused the fire that was put out by the fire department in the cockpit?

    http://avherald.com/h?article=44d72e46&opt=0

    Firefighters, who had entered the cockpit, reported they had dealt with an active fire by deploying an agent, the halon had put the fire out, they were however still seeing hot spots behind a panel. Other firefighters checking the cargo bay reported no smoke or fire but haze from the halon off the aircraft fire suppression system.
