Conflagration

January 22, 2015

Shot for the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport Fire Training Facility. Under all the flames is a full scale mockup of an Airbus A380. There are dozens of nozzles positioned in and around the aircraft that emit liquid propane. Controlled by computer, the flames rage until sensors detect the presence of the fire retardant being sprayed. When enough retardant is detected the flames automatically subside. The heat from my position almost 30 yards away was almost unbearable.
