Dear Sir,
            May I ask whether Halon 1211 is a gas or powder
extinguishant?

            May I ask whether Halon 1211 is toxic and is it a fatal
toxic if people breathe in halon?

            If there is an inflight oven fire, what is your opinion
should the cabin crew to touch the oven door to certify that a fire is
suspected before they fight the fire. I wonder whether the airliner oven
door could conduct the heat or not?
