Default DIA 35L Fire on alert

DIA Fire (Red Team) is currently on alert on 35L waiting an aircraft inbound (20 mi out as of this post)

Only caught the tail end of it so this is all I got...

Well; I'm not really sure _what_ happened... I heard them land, and then taxi to a gate, and I heard fire clear the taxiway. I'm guessing there was a medical issue?

Medicals don't usually get the ARFF rigs on the runway they stage at the gate along with EMS.

But don't forget red leader calls are common (a few a day) at DIA for warning lights, to flap issues, tires etc etc.

I heard red 1 3 and 4 go to quarters shortly afterward; then a while later I heard red 2 6 and 8 call off the side taxi-ways.

Looks like it was a regulary scheduled flight (A 320) from DC to Denver - not sure why your search showed a 747SP?

That was the tail number they read off over the air.

It appears my copy/paste of the first google result was mistaken, as that tail number shows as scrapped in '98 here: Boeing 747SP Website - History for airframe# 21024 Maybe I heard the tail number wrong :/

N505UA is a 757, it might have been N405UA.

This is pretty routine. We have these low-level standbys several times a week. Don't worry, if the s#%t is really hitting the fan, there won't be any mistaking it for anything else!
