7. Sitting in a DC 3 getting ready to take off
from the tiny coral runway on Guanaja, Honduras I looked out the window and saw that the wing was on fire. Apparently they run fuel into the plane through an opening in the wing? I alerted the pilot who was serving us OJ before take off and he walked out there, stuffed a rag in the hole and said it would go out once we got in the air. LOL. It was like riding a flying Molotov cocktail!
Thankfully it did because that is a deep part of the ocean we were flying over to get to the mainland of Honduras. We all grabbed as much of our diving gear as we could before we took to the sky just in case.
