Canadian military investigators are trying to determine whether an RCAF Hercules aircraft damaged extensively by fire and forced to land in Florida Tuesday will ever fly again, the Toronto Star has learned.
The multi-million dollar plane, which was on a training exercise, was ablaze when it landed at the U.S. Naval Air Station Key West, forcing the crew to scramble to safety while an emergency crew at the airbase doused the blaze. Damage was reported as extensive.
I’m glad they got out. In flight fire on board a tanker is… not a good thing.
