    Default F-18 flightdeck fire

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqMk1Mhgy1w

    If you haven't seen this video yet, you want to. Awesome job by the crash and salvage guys AND the flightdeck crew. Watch the clock, and see how fast the deck crash rig goes into action, as well as the handlines from the deck crew. Awesome all around.

    great job on the fire crew on keeping that fire from spreading and making a much bigger mess.

    That was petty impressive. Reading the comments on that video is entertaining as well... I love the 15min experts the internet has spawned.
