How would you complete this reaction: #Fe(s) + Al_2O_3(aq) ->#?

I think you may have misrepresented the reaction....


In welding applications (commonly between lengths of railway tracks) to make a continuous track the thermite reaction is used to produce molten iron from ferric oxide and aluminium powder:

#Fe_2O_3(s) + 2Al(s) stackrel(Delta)rarr2Fe(l) + Al_2O_3(s)#

If I am wrong, apologies...
