The 7.30pm flight was due to take off just a few hours after Arsenal secured a 2-2 draw against VfL Wolfsburg in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final.

Witnesses say the plane – reportedly from a Maltese airline – made a loud bang just before it was about to take off on April 23.

Horrified pilots saw the blaze and quickly pulled the plane up on the tarmac and evacuated the passengers.

An airport spokesman told German newspaper BILD a bird strike on the engine had caused the fire.
