Narrative:
CF-100 18322 of 440 AW (Fighter) Squadron, had just landed at 3 Fighter Wing, when fuel leaking from the wing poured over the hot brakes. The hot wheels burst into flame that spread to the wing. The navigator quickly exited the aircraft as it came to a stop, but the pilot was slow to unstrap and found himself temporarily surrounded by flames. He finally managed to free himself and escaped the aircraft. The aircraft was completely destroyed by the ensuing fire.
