Engine fire during starting. Although it looked a bit odd to spectators, the pilot followed procedures for this situation and continued to turn over the engine, pumping unburnt fuel from the cylinders. Two fire engines arrived but were not needed. No damage caused to aircraft, which flew later in the display.
