yeah I was a F-16 Crew Chief, and believe it or not you can put a Cigarette out in a can of JP8 ( jet fuel ) and it will put the cigarette out, heh.
You need to atomize the fuel and ignite it for the explosion / combustion to happen. So when a jet crashes it's when the break up of the fuel tank and
atomizing through the wreckage scattering about combined with sparks from metal on metal on rocks and whatever else and boom. Sometimes you have the
right variables for the same thing in the air.
in regards to the crash, just bothers me that a 135, and the other big craft ( if it isn't a joke but CNN is reporting on it still ), we need a more
stable means of travel instead of this crude bottle rockets with people idea we have been using...
Maybe our global climate extremes is causing weather our plane tech cannot handle too well. I mean with the info above I mentioned about atomizing
fuel for combustion and incresing water born storms with wind = Not good.
I had to keep everything out of the intakes of the f-16, and still had damage from sand, dust, air, electrons lol you name it, if you saw what was
inside a turbine of a jet engine to make you go through the air you'd cry and run home.
Gliders are more safe, do that and live to enjoy it again.
