    Watching this again I’m intrigued at the strategy employed to put out this fire. First the truck comes out and suspends the flames at what seems to be an odd angle, but as you watch further you can see that the truck’s goal is not to put out the fire, but to prevent it from spreading further up the aircraft, and to give the ground crew a chance to tackle the fire from a perpendicular angle. Out in 2 minutes. Impressive.
