CLT Saturday evening excitement.

Surprised nobody posted this... At about 9:50pk tonight a (EDIT:767 not A320) pulled up to gate B9 at CLT surrounded by a large amount of safety vehicles and leaking some form of fluid from the underbelly. They just 10:45pm deboarded people off the plane from what I could see...

The fire fighters appeared to to into the rear cargo looking for something. I don't think it was fuel based on the general body language of the responders, but definitely not something you see every day. They appear to have closed off the two adjacent gates B7 and B11 and it has really thrown a wrench in the evening bank of flights.

Sorry I don't have more info, about to board my PHX flight...

Only found two mainline aircraft on flightaware between 920 and 10, both A321s, but 1660 was at C19, and 1918 was at B12

Maybe someone else has some info, sounds interesting for sure

Edit to add: 1718 parked at B9 at 843pm, 7 hours late. Was a 767. Maybe?

1718 was the flight number on the gate, I figured that was outbound though...I think your right it was a 767. I bonered the id.
