What would happen if a plane exploded in mid-air and the fuel somehow survived and dropped all over a forest?

    It depends very much on the height at which the plane exploded — for example, when a plane crashes into a forest, the explosion and the accompanying flaming parts and fuel do serious damage to the forest. However, if the fuel dropped from the height at which a typical airplane cruises (above 10,000 feet), then the fuel would not be ignited by the time it reached the ground.

    You’d have a forest drenched in plane fuel…I’m sure some of the wildlife wouldn’t appreciate it, smaller plantlife that came into contact with it would most likely die. Other than that, it’d be the equivalent of a scraped knee for the environment, nothing it wouldn’t recover from.
