yeah... i was just being a jerk and wanted him to have a complete thought. he's an admin, he can handle it lol. but you could even take it one step further and say that cars/trucks are built to be crashed and crash tested... planes are built to be light and not crash

I wonder what the driver of the truck was thinking before the plane hit him.

Jet fuel isn't more flammable than gas. Its very stable, similar to diesel.

ya gas is alot more flammable than jet fuel... which is in the same family as kerosene, and diesel as others have mentioned. Unlike gas which requires a spark to ignite, jet fuel requires heat and compression to really burn. Not saying that it wont burn, but try lighting a cup of kerosene, on fire with a bic lighter... youll be hard pressed to keep it lit.

I think he meant jet fuel has more heat energy.


Lighting the cup of kerosene with a bic is easy if you pop off the metal cover and flip the lighter upside down and get the plastic on fire. Then when the nozzle shoots out the butane turns into a torch you drop it in the cup. Poof.

That is all true, but small piston engined airplanes like the one in the picture use 100 octane low-lead aviation gasoline (100LL).

It is highly flammable. It is also highly inflammable.

It also melted the piston on my dirtbike!

Despite the name Low Lead it has 4 times the lead of av gas 80 that it replaced. Which is what that 1960's Piper was built to run. It wouldn't surprise me if they were running auto gas in it.
