My friend worked at Dulles International for a while. Note the fuel under each engine! Apparently, that's normal.

I ran the maintenance department in my last Navy squadron, and worked on carrier aircraft for over 20 years.

Any fuel on the deck underneath an engine, tank, or fuel cell is never normal.

Sorry, but I'm not very amused. Every see an aircraft fire on an aircraft carrier?

Do a YouTube search of the USS Forrestal fire during their Vietnam deployment in July of 1967. Actually before you watch that, have a look at Wikipedia's article for the incident.

McCain was on that one, right? Its docked in Philly. He was ground crew at Dulles and asked the crew about that, and apparently, they weren't worried! ... I've only seen it once on a really hot day and a Cessna was topped off and fuel dripped out of the overflow thingie under the left wing. I'd be afraid to crank it!

I took these sunrise pictures three days ago in Missouri. Some of the best pictures I've captured so far.

He's slacking again! Sorry.... I will get caught up tomorrow. Daylight Saving Time has really done a number on me, and I'm not sleeping when I should be.
