BA pilot makes emergency evacuation - from his Mercedes.<br />
<br />
A British Airways pilot had a lucky escape when his Mercedes car suddenly burst into flames as he drove home.<br />
<br />
John Pearce was oblivious to the fire that erupted underneath his white Mercedes C350 AMG estate car and ignored a motorist who tried to warn him by flashing his lights.<br />
<br />
It was only when a police officer pulled in behind Mr Pearce's blazing motor and also flashed him that he stopped.<br />
<br />
The officer got out and told Mr Pearce that his car was on fire which prompted the pilot to jump out of the diesel estate.
