Flights in and out of Gatwick were suspended today after an aircraft was forced to make an emergency landing after a terrifying mid-air blaze.
The Virgin flight VS027 had left the airport at 9.48am taking holidaymakers out to Orlando in Florida turned back after the passengers reported smelling smoke.
A Virgin spokeswoman said everyone on the flight had been evacuated and four suffered minor injuries.
Six passengers received treatment for breathing problems, according to West Sussex fire and rescue service
Liam Moore, a passenger on the flight, told the BBC that everybody was "really shaken up".
He said: "We were on the plane and everything seemed fine.
"Then the pilot came on the tannoy about 10 minutes into the flight and said we would have to do an emergency landing.
"It all happened so quickly. We landed and suddenly all the doors flung open and the emergency slides were inflated."
"We then had to slide down the chutes, some people got cuts and grazes from the slide."
Rachel Cole, whose sister was at Gatwick, were among those who took to Twitter to reveal details of the accident.
She tweeted: "My sister just texted and said all the runways in Gatwick are closed due to a plane cockpit fire, they had to do an emergency landing!!!"
Six fire crews from West Sussex Fire and Rescue were called to the blaze, which is believed to have started in the plane's cockpit.
Firefighters used six sets of breathing apparatus and two powerful water jets to put out the flames, a spokeswoman for the service said.
Confirming the incident, Virgin said in a statement: "Due to a technical problem on board the aircraft, the captain decided as a precautionary measure to immediately evacuate the aircraft.
"Our teams at Gatwick are now looking after our passengers and assisting with their immediate requirements.
"Virgin Atlantic is working closely with the authorities to establish the cause of this incident."
The Airbus A330-300 aircraft had 13 crew and 299 passengers on board.
A spokeswoman for Gatwick also confirmed that the flight had run into trouble mid-air.
She said: "It has made a safe emergency landing, the emergency services are on the scene and the aircraft is safe and passengers are being disembarked.
"Because the aircraft is on the runway all flights in and out of Gatwick are suspended until further notice."
The spokeswoman said the passengers involved were being looked after in a specially set-up reception area at the airport.
Some incoming flights have been diverted, with some now landing at Stansted Airport in Essex instead.
It was not known just how long it would be before the plane could be moved from the runway and normal take-offs and landings could resume.
