Try searching Google using the words "pilots saved by Nomex" and on the screen the site I tried to send a link to in my last post came up as the fifth one down the page.

In it there is a powerpoint slide show and picture #9 shows a well-grilled Apache (complete with refuelling hose) and other slides show how wearing Nomex flying suits, gloves etc. does work and prevent one getting burnt very well. Other pictures show what happens when you don't wear the right kit.....(or have your sleeves rolled up when the ought to be down...)

If you can work out how to make the link work other PPRuNers will get a chance to learn the "easy" way.
