Driving west bound on marine drive approx 5:50pm
Was very visible Large flames at west end of PDX - beyond the runway.
Also visible was around a half dozen fire trucks several on the move towards the fire,all the ones i was seeing were on the Airport property already.
This video is best i could do- shot as i approached an passing an ends just before the incline in road approaching the boat ramp.
what may not be visible in video is what i saw with my eyes-
a severely charred plane - nose facing east , sever black smoke an at that time appeared a dramatically reduced , Controlled fire at west end or rear of the plane.
deriving from my observation of several structural derbies amongst the flames
, I assumed it was perhaps a hanger that had burst into flames,jet fuel most likely.
the video is from iphone an not zoomed in ,yet my first sight of the fire was Very large flames - easily 40-50 feet high an Wide - 100+ feet in length (east to west) .
ive been at work since 6pm an recently searched for news on this an have yet find anything ..
** upload video later as unable to from iphone -(?)-
