This incident could have had quite a serious outcome.
"The flames disappeared after 50 seconds but there was no knowing whether it was properly out," Capt Banfield said.
Naked flame is something you never want to see at altitude.
Well done boys to bring the bird down safely and not a comfortable descent with a full-face mask.
Will be interesting to see the ATSB prelim report.
Maybe some HR at the window heater connections ??
