Seventh paragraph from this story about Virgin flight on 29th Dec.:
http://www.iol.co.za/news/world/pilot-dumped-fuel-then-landed-with-jammed-wheel-1.1799844#.VKPmjiusVHA

"The Boeing 747-400, named Barbarella, circled the Bristol Channel to dump some of the fuel stored in its wings before turning back."

BBC story here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-30625945

I wonder if the fuel makes it to sea level from 32,000 feet? Don't light a fag for a few days! affraid

Almost certainly ! It's like paraffin (jet a) you will smell it if it's there . Beware it will rot neoprene and latex like nothing on earth !
