Does that mean you will never set foot on an airliner?

Or drive a car on a freeway?

Actually it was titanium. And some lawyers convinced a jury that titanium caused the crash and Ti should not be used in airplanes.

Since it's not the Secraft pump, I'd like to know which one it is so I can avoid it or tell friends who might have it. Do tell, Bob

Lmao. I guess it didn't work. Titanium and magnesium. Two of the most common and flammable materials on aircraft.

Go to any hobby store and buy the cheapest electric pump they have. has a switch that can work both ways to reverse direction. This style electric pump has been around for years. The Secraft pump most likely will solve any issues with spark/ignition. I just don't want anything electric new my gas can.

I learn from mine and other peoples mistakes, just like auto makers and airlines.

Fearmongering at its finest...
... I would hate to hear your position on FPV

J/K, I don't really want to hear about your fears at all

Just in the name of accuracy......

According to the official investigation conducted by the Bureau d'Enquêtes et d'Analyses pour la Sécurité de l'Aviation Civile (BEA), the crash was caused by a metallic strip that fell from a Continental Airlines DC-10 that had taken off minutes earlier. This fragment punctured a tyre on Concorde's left main wheel bogie during takeoff. The tyre exploded, and a piece of rubber hit the fuel tank, which caused a fuel leak and led to a fire. The crew shut down engine number 2 in response to a fire warning, and with engine number 1 surging and producing little power, the aircraft was unable to gain altitude or speed. The aircraft entered a rapid pitch-up then a violent descent, rolling left and crashing tail-low into the Hôtelissimo Les Relais Bleus Hotel in Gonesse.[162]
