              I'm pretty sure Steph is referring to her engine out landing at Kingston/Ulster (20N), a nasty little field for that type of activity. She described it on Avsig at the time, and I shake my head whenever I fly over that field.

                Had to shut down an engine about 200 miles out over the Atlantic at night because of a fire warning. We immediately did a 180 and were losing altitude. The other three got us back to Langley where we learned the problem was a defective fire warning system. But we had emptied two bottles of extinguisher into that engine, so it wasn't going to run again for a while.

                  In SE Asia we would get a Fire Warning from time to time in the UH-1s. Normally it was a false alarm caused by the heat from that tropical paradise. We were so jaded that every time we would get a Fire Alarm we'd have the CE lean out and check to see if we were burning.
