Abstract:

Data from six sources related to the operation of the military aircraft ground fire suppression and rescue systems were analyzed. For these data a large number of distributions and joint distributions are presented which describe parameters important to the various phases of the fire fighting operation. Among these are type of aircraft, phase of operation, location of accidentincident, type, quantity and state of fuel aboard, location and state of fire, site factor surface conditions, route factor surface conditions, types and quantities of suppressant agents, fire control time, wind velocity and temperature, and various types of delays. It is shown that fuel weights were greater in those incidents which had fire than in those which did not. Further, it is shown that fuel weights were greater in incidents with more severe fires than in those with less fires.
