Thomas, P.H., 1952. FIRE PROTECTION OF AIRFIELDS. Fire Research Notes 30


This report deals with the adequacy of fire fighting facilities at civil airfields. A survey has been made of civil aircraft fires during the years 1948-51 and it is concluded that in the absence of further experience it would be unwise to decrease the present cover as there is no evidence that this at present gives reasonable chance of saving life. If is further suggested that a regular international system of reporting aircraft crash fires be considered.
