Kudos to the pilot for safely getting it on the ground, getting all the passengers out safely AND putting out the fire!

Do Navajos typically have engine fire extinguishers?

No bottles on a Navajo, I've only seen them on turbine engines.

I know that Cessna offered an optional fire extinguishing system on the 402, but I have yet to actually a piston aircraft with them as well.

We had them on the 421 but not the 414. That's why I asked.

Thanks

Hmm, wonder why I can't edit my post... I meant so say "actually see a piston aircraft with them as well."
