Why the frick is an airplane “dumping fuel”?!? Go frick yourselves, air industry. And wonder why the price of a plane ticket has gone up exponentially... it’s because apparently they’re throwing away the fricking fuel we as customers are paying for.



Good Lord you are out of touch my man.

I've had fuel burn more times than I could count, these kids just need a shower and time and they'll be fine.

Maybe one of the OT pilots can chime in as to why an aircraft would need to perform a fuel dump in an emergency situation?


Many times we are loaded with more fuel than the landing weight allows,,,,believe it or not you can take off with a lot more weight than you can land with.

Is it just too much stress on the frame from the fuel in the wings?

I've watched YouTube videos on this.

A loaded jetliner cannot land with full tanks.....in an emergency they must dump fuel.

In most cases it mists and evaporates before hitting the ground.

But it's a weight issue and has to be done.

Have to dump fuel more frequently than you’d think.

Lol. Higher flashpoint, still extremely flammable.

Isn't that depending on the temperature of the liquid as well?
