    Very lucky.
    As a volunteer firefighter on our island I had attended four fatal airplane crashes, none had fires. I also seen a number of other other significant crashes and also no fires. I wonder how often fires do occur.

    Another observation.....that airplane is quite broken up, no fire surprises me.....
    Did any of the articles say who was flying?

    I might have something mixed up, but I think one of them said she was a private pilot and he bought the airplane for her. Also that he held no aeronautical rating.

    If she’s the one “working towards” a PPL and he’s just supporting her, I’d argue he didn’t fully understand the risk he took by getting in the plane as her passenger.

    From the Katherine report she bought the airplane for him and he was a student pilot.

    You’re right, my apologies. I mixed them up.
