Posted on September 18, 2020 in Photos
STL’s Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting crews participated in live-burn training exercises this week to simulate an accident on the airfield. The training exercises use a Mobile Aircraft Trainer, a 50-foot fuselage, capable of producing simulated fires including a fully-engulfed aircraft. The FAA requires annual aircraft rescue and firefighting training with live fires for airport emergency response personnel.
