Samples of swarf taken from the fuel pump of an aeroengine involved in a flying accident were analysed in the scanning electron microscope . The surface features and chemical composition of the metallic particles suggest that they might have come from the fuel tank itself which is made of an aluminium alloy containing copper, manganese and iron.
