    One of the Condors aircraft. News shows the unharmed pilot walking around in his shorts.

    If anybody ever tells you anything about an aeroplane which is so bloody complicated you can't understand it, take it from me: It's all balls. RJM.

        Somehow the people cleaning up the wreckage managed to set it on fire again 6 hours after the crash.

              Pilot was dressed for a BBQ at the beach, next day the crash report on the Yak 11 incident last year is released which states:
              Use of Flight Suits

              According to Transport Canada ("Flight Suits-Functional Protection," May 20, 2010), one manufacturer of fire-resistant clothing carried out a burn test in order to rate the clothing materials that provided the most fire protection. Layering fire-resistant garments on top of each was determined to offer the best protection; with the results of the tests indicating that, when a Nomex 27/P flight suit was worn directly against the body, burns totaled nearly 52% body surface area (BSA). When a Nomex 27/P flight suit was worn with short cotton underwear, burns totaled about 34% BSA. When a Nomex 27/P flight suit was worn in conjunction with Nomex long underwear, burns were reduced significantly, to about 9% BSA.

              These numbers included unprotected head, hands, and feet, which could be protected by the use of fire-resistant boots and gloves, and a flight helmet worn with the visor down

                I'm glad he's okay.
                The statements about his apparel choice sounds like a bit of Monday morning officiating, but on the heels of the NTSB report on the 2016 YAK fire, a good reminder for wearing flight suits.

                IIRC, this topic was addressed here a couple of years aho, some posters thought one should always wear Nomex while flying. While they make sense in some types, where do you stop...Tiger Moths, Cessnas, A380s?
                There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.
