Several different types of planes were on site along with the their owners who were gracious enough explain the nuances of their aircraft as far as safety procedures and attributes. Emergency personnel learned how to open different types of access doors and canopies, the location and operation of fuel shut off valves and safety switches and other unique hazards like rocket propelled parachutes.
