If we had a chopper with a fire bottle, we would have had fewer problems. I asked this pilot, what could I tell people around airplanes that would make it easier for the rescue people to save their lives. The thing that bugged them most was sitting around the firehouse or the rescue pad bored to death and

all of a sudden there's a burning airplane in the middle of the runway.

Then it takes them 3 to 5 minutes even to get out there to start putting the fire out.
