When a plane dumps fuel in order to lighten up for a premature landing, what happens to that jet fuel? Is it harmful to the environment? How quickly does it disperse? It seems to me that dumping almost 100,000 lbs of fuel would be an environmental nightmare. How about the risk of fire? How volatile is that fuel?
