Would you fly this airline?
“Engine Failure: A condition which occurs when all
fuel tanks mysteriously become filled with air.“
“Range: Usually about 10 miles beyond
the point where all fuel tanks fill with air.”
“It won’t happen to me.”
“That gauge can’t be right.”
“This isn’t happening!”
“If the pilot survives the accident, you'll
never find out what really happened.”
— Doug Jeanes
"The only time an aircraft has too much
fuel on board is when it is on fire.”
— Sir Charles Kingsford Smith
Fortunately, all these situations ended with uneventful non- emergency landings. But they can happen to anyone.
When it comes to fuel,
“Getting it wrong”
has consequences ranging
from embarrassing to fatal.
Be methodical. Remain aware.
Land if uncertain.
