According to WVEC, the Raptor was pulling a float during the holiday parade in Virginia Beach, VA on Saturday. A generator for the float that was placed on the Raptor was responsible for the fire. When members of the volunteer fire department pulled the generator off of the truck, some fuel spilled onto the bed and sent flames shooting up and onto the float itself.
No one was hurt in the fire. But of all the ways to see a Raptor go, doing parade duty has to be the most depressing.
