Eye-witness Richard Gray told BBC News 24: "A green Jeep was in the middle of the doorway burning.
"There was an Asian guy who was pulled out of the car by two police officers, who he was trying to fight off. They've got him on the ground.
"The car didn't actually explode. There were a few pops and bangs which presumably was the petrol."
Taxi driver Ian Crosby said: "This was no accident. This was a deliberate attack on Glasgow Airport."
The reaction of members of the public was not to help the men in the car, but to restrain them, he told the BBC.
Mr Crosby, who said he served in Northern Ireland, told how he shepherded people away from the scene in case of a secondary explosion or a nail-bomb.
Two men, one of whom was reported to be badly burned, were seen being led away in handcuffs.
More Islamic nutters I guarantee it. It's real, wake up you conspiracy cretins.
You are the nutter to take all this Government's and the previous one's hype on board. It is designed to inspire fear in all of us so that the police state advances little by little and then where will you be. WAKE UP
"Incorrect... In Fact they have been carried out by Islamic Extremists... including white and black people... who have converted to this cult version of Islam!"
Would you like to poin me in the direction of a non-asian who has been involved in a terrorist plot in the UK in th elast 3 years?
Also this is not a cult version of Islam - It's just islam!
Amo_UK you are totally correct, being British is more than just the colour of your skin and terrorists come in all fleshtones. The men who were caught today should be given a show trial and then taken to a place of execution and hung from a high rise crane. If possible could someone swap the rope for a piece of bungee cord?
"Would you like to poin me in the direction of a non-asian who has been involved in a terrorist plot in the UK in th elast 3 years?"
I'm sorry I can't find the link to another website which highlighted Wanted Terrorists and these included some white males.
I can agree however that most are of Muslim origin, but again you can't say all Asians.
What have Sikhs or Hindus ever done to harm anyone in the UK?
In the same manner there are Muslims who are peaceful and only those who misinterpret their religion to become extremists.
It is these same Islamic extremists who killed and raped many Sikhs and Hindus back in India just because they didn't convert to their radical view of Islam.
I would just wish the people would not portray all Asians or brown skinned people as Terrorists.
My fight is the same as yours!
Thank you and I agree totally... the bungee cord should however reach down to a bed of very sharp knives.
These terrorists need to be shown that they have no rights in our British Society!
I'm a British Sikh but I would lay my life down for this Country, as this is where I was born.
If only these Extremists would think the same and fight for Britain and not their stupid beliefs.
If they want to observe their radical views, then they should leave this Country and go elsewhere... as surely Britain is not for them then!
Amo. I have worked with many Sikh men and I believe the
majority think like you. But unfortunately you get lumped
into the "Asian" thing. I do think you will find most posters on here know the difference between Sikh and Muslim
Don’t get confused All Asians are not Muslims
Muslims hide in all creeds colours and nationalities
This is a BELIEF Not a Matter of Skin colour
See the Arab Truth on u-tube
It makes no difference if whether Jew, Christian, Hindu. Buddhist whatever you believe in
Muslims rebuke us all and believe that we are all doomed unless we turn to Allah
It is a slow brainwash that can affect people who do not have a strong free thinking mind
The fact They do not acknowledge any of our faiths is our biggest problem in the world today is that no one is recognising this.
We as human race need to band together and re educated this barbaric form of religious fanaticisms
Explane the concept of human evolution and free thinking
Bring them out of the dark ages and into the light of the 21st century

The first bomb was found in a Mercedes outside the Tiger Tiger club in Haymarket just before 2am on Friday. An ambulance crew treating a man who had hurt his head saw vapours in the car and alerted the police. Bomb disposal officers risked their lives to defuse the lethal combination of petrol, gas and nails inside.
Police think that an explosion here might have been intended to draw panicking revellers out on to the streets, where they would be have been joined by the emergency services. Then another, bigger bomb in a second Mercedes among them could have been triggered, causing hundreds of deaths.
A blue 280E model Mercedes was illegally parked in Cockspur Street, near Trafalgar Square, but was towed to a Park Lane car pound at 3.30am on Friday. The explosive device inside did not go off. If successful, the trap would have resembled the attack on backpackers in a Bali nightclub in 2002, when a suicide bomb led those escaping straight into the path of a van packed with explosives.
