altitude above you, runway behind you and fuel in the fuel truck unless you're on fire.

If you are on fire then probably the coupon for 10% off on halon refills that you didn't use.

I've always wondered. If you are on fire, do you die of the fire, or does the Halon get you first?
I carry one and haven't had the opportunity to use it yet, that's a good thing.
Remember, not all who wander, are lost.

Fire hurts. A lot. I'll take the Halon.

I was going to guess the FAA, the Dept. of Homeland Security and a delivery slot for the Eclipse 500. Now, I'm embarassed. :oops:

Dude! You absolutely get the nod for the most-original response...

PilotBillfromTexas may have first gotten the standard answer, jschnud, but yours made my day for a week-ending smile!

Thanks to all!

Sorta-related, I guess... one of the best aviation quotes ever, from someone over on the Warbird Info Exchange forum:

"In all of aviation, there are only three reasons to run: fire, free food, and the free food is on fire!" :D :D :D
