Chris Wolf, Author and Pilot
One thing that a lot of us have in common in light aviation are the red plastic fuel cans that we use to fuel our aircraft. You may have heard the warnings about not filling them while they are sitting in a truck bed with a plastic liner because of the chance sparking and fire. My answer has always been, "Yeah, right! I'm sure that happens a lot!" Well, Chris Wolf has had it happen. He tells us how to prevent it from happening to you! See a video clip of a woman experience a fueling fire from static electricity at a filling station at www.esdjournal.com.Learn more about Chris' Powered Paragliding Book.
