    OT-2 Local crop duster incident

    Local crop duster had an incident Sunday afternoon and ended up in a small woods. FAA advised local fire department to unload fuel and what ever he was spraying. So my question is who has control over the site NTSB or FAA. If I'm that fire department I'm not touching anything unless the NTSB say it's ok. Well looks like the local department just got dispatched looks like the wreckage has ignited! Don't most aircraft have a master electrical switch?

    I would assume that in an aircraft accident with a possible survivor first responders are not going to give much thought to the FAA or NTSB. If they can extricate the survivor or survivors safely they will. The authorities can figure out what happened later.
