UAL 27, a 757 had a fire in the cockpit and there is supposedly video and pictures of the fire. Pictures are slowly coming out, but none yet of the actual fire. I've cut down the audio considerably; however, missing the audio from Washington Center and the second Potomac approach frequency. Have the initial emergency declaration on NY Center, initial contact with Potomac Approach and IAD Tower. You get a lot of feedback at the beginning that I assume is from the cockpit of UAL27. The last burst of feedback prior to UAL27 declaring the emergency @16 seconds in, you can actually hear the fire extinguisher being used which is was an interesting catch on the audio.
Initially ATC diverts them to Middleton Airport, the nearest that they can land at. Eventually, once the fire's out, UAL27 requests to go Dulles.
