Worse.

He's not banned yet still felt compelled to make an alter.

Another fricking dimwit.

Certainly no shortage around here.

Jet fuel vaporizes long before hitting the ground. This is either a false report, or it was dumped extremely close to the ground.

Take a bucket of jet fuel. Drop in a lit match.

The jet fuel will put out the match every time.

What if you rip a fuel tank open and atomize the jet fuel while skidding down the runway with a failed landing gear creating sparks?

With enough oxygen, fuel, and pressure you can light anything on fire.

Take about 60,000 gallons of jet fuel, put it in a jet weighing a few hundred thousand pounds, then drop the plane onto a concrete runway from about 10,000’ at 200 knots. There’s a pretty good chance it will look something like this...

What do you suppose caused that massive fireball on impact?

Pilot error, bad maintenance, shitty airline, Boeing shenanigans...

It’s actually a cargo carrier that crashed due to its load being improperly tied down. The load shifted on takeoff and caused the jet to stall and crash. So what do you suppose was the substance that ignited into such a massive fireball on impact?

Probably jet fuel, without knowing the cargo.

You are correct. The fireball was caused by the jet’s fuel igniting on impact.

Ever wondered how fuel cells work? Break down water into hydrogen and oxygen, and it becomes flammable.

Like I said, with enough pressure, fuel, and oxygen, anything burns.
