I've had to visit a number of airport fire services around the country as part of my previous day job. Once visited the fire section at Southampton Airport and watched a fire crew, who were down from Heathrow for training, put out a fire on the high pressure training rig. Very impressive. My hat goes off to anyone doing that job, volunteer or otherwise.

Don't need them for outside fires, we are being trained on BA for snatch rescues from aircraft with smoke filled cockpits but not needed for this kind of fire.
Remember we are only tackling General Aviation aircraft & twins, NOT 737's.

BA for Fire crew at GA fields i think would open up quite a big can of worms. Causes no end of discussions at my CAT4 station but would it be affordable or practicable for a small operation such as Sandtoft? First defence for MMMFs is the wind direction then the foam blanket helps keep the dust down.
