Re: REFLECTOR: Fuel Tanks

Martin- are you saying that grounding is unnecessary, or is it only needed
for spam cans and rag wings?
  I heard the Swings burned a Velocity.  I believe they were removing fuel
from one under construction. I have heard that other composite planes have
caught on fire due to static, but no specifics. As usual I have erred on the
side of caution.  -Bill
