In light of the MD11 Crash, I'm NOT trying to start a debate over
this incident because the facts are not in yet, but I have a question
regarding something that was mentioned about this tragedy.
It was mention that the pilot may have dumped to much or all of the
fuel. I don't think this was the case personally however it brought up
a question. Can ALL the fuel be dumped in a situation like this? Is
it possible to accidentally starve your own engines if you forget to stop?
Again I don't want to start anything in respect to the crash, but just
a simple question.
