4.3.6  Contamination Effects

Although the Board determined that contamination was not a factor in the initiation of the fire in SR 111, it remains concerned that the role of contamination in an in-flight fire is not well known. The Board believes that more needs to be done to quantify the risks. The Board is presently investigating the role of contamination in the context of another in-flight fire accident. TSB Investigation Report A02O0123 will address the safety deficiencies associated with contamination of aircraft.
