This tragic video shows just how quickly an inflight fire can make any aircraft uncontrollable, resulting in disaster. Get it on the ground at the first sign of a fire and get out as soon as it stops moving. If a fire or any explosion begins during the takeoff roll, stay on the ground and try to bring it to a stop even it involves a groundloop or an overrun.
