Tripacer has fuel in wings. Â That was an electrical fire. 95% of in flight fires are not survivable whether fuel is in the header or wing.

It may have been electrical but what had the outcome been if there was a 16 gallon "fiberglass" tank behind the panel. And in the case of a roll over / crash where airframes break in to pieces I don't want a fuel tank in close proximity or100LL soaking my cloths. Seems like a very sudden and intense fire to injure the pilot as it did. I hope they can figure out what happened and if they do, Sid, keep us posted.

In flight fires may be seldom survived but I hope to have improved my chances in a crash. We each have our own comfort level.
