Any one know how fuel is jettison from an aircraft? And I im not talking about the switch in cockpit.

And where is the landing gear safety switch located?

Thank you.

I think someone puts a hose into the tank and lets it all syphon out, ah lets see, the landing gear switch is in the front near the pilot's reach, best I can do for right now............

Hey thanks for your response but i found my answer. Fuel is jettison by an override pump and i was looking for the landing gear safety switch. I was told it was located on the nose gear but still unsure.
