See that pic.? Mount an F 16 jet engine on the front arms.A fuel tank in back. Blow out fires.

Blow out the fires? That's called "fanning the flames".

Besides, how would you get a rig like that into some of the areas that firefighters have to go? Drop it in with a parachute?

Sorry, that is good for some humor but not an idea based in reality.

If you are so sure about your idea, then build it and prove us wrong!

No,,I guess this is the best method.The hose cost only 8 bucks and we all know that only water can put out a fire.Or in this case,It just burned itself out.

We have had Dozers and Trucks stall out because of the Oxygen being sucked up so fast the rigs will not run right. 2 years ago we had a Dozer over run by the fire and the guys had to deploy their Fire Shelters! That was on the one my home was in. Lost the Dozer in that fire too. The guy got out OK though. Same Dozer I walked in a couple of hours earlier. These fires can scare the SH*T out of you when they flare up and crown and start moveing faster than you can drive or run!! Not a game when you are in the middle of them. Mark H.

Willy.We are the most advanced nation on the planet.I remember John Kennedy said we will send a man to the Moon and return him.I saw that man in 68 on the Moon.He returned.We have submarines which can stay submerged for several months .Evidently the people inside get air. The reason they cant put out big fires more effeciently is because nobody with the money invest in the solutions.Christopher Columbus would have set at the dock untill he died without investors and we would not be here to know about any fire. They have dumb ways of stopping fires.It is not effective.

To much money to be made off putting them out to stop them when small. Mark H.

Bill..Anytime one comes up with something new he is considered a nut.But Do you think a jet engine can put out a coal mine fire?

I do not know about coal mines it probaly would or you would not have brought it up. But a forest fire ain't no coal mine fire I have seen places out there that thing wouldn't go and I ain't been in the rough country.
