Itís not just a problem of vis but contamination. I, nor my employer Iíd imagine, would want smoke getting pulled into the packs. Iíve modified my descent over forest and moorland fires before to avoid flying through the smoke. Donít want it in the pitots and I donít want it streaming in though the bleeds.
