|Quoting ZBBbird (Reply 1):|
Delivering fuel via underground lines is called hydrant fuelling.
|Quoting Tristarsteve (Reply 2):|
Tankers are all right for commuters that only need 1000litres, but not a good idea for a B744 that needs 150000litres.
|Quoting Spoke2Spoke (Thread starter):|
What is the nature of the equipment to deliver the fuel plane-side? Is it simply a pump, hose and a gauge that draws the fuel up from underground? Who owns and operates this equipment, the airport or a private company?
|Quoting Spoke2Spoke (Reply 4):|
What large airports have limited or no hydrant fueling systems?
