    OOPS!

    This brand spanking new Airbus 340-600, the largest passenger airplane ever built, sits just outside its hangar in Toulouse, France without a single hour of air time.

    Enter the Arab flight crew of Abu Dhabi Aircraft Technologies (ADAT) to conduct pre-delivery tests on the ground, such as engine run-ups, prior to delivery to Etihad Airways in Abu Dhabi .

    The ADAT crew taxied the A340-600 to the run-up area.

    Then they took all four engines to take-off power with a virtually empty aircraft. Not having read the French run-up manuals, they had no clue just how light an empty A340-600 really is.

    The take-off warning horn was blaring away in the cockpit because they had all 4 engines at full power. The aircraft computers thought they were trying to take off, but it had not been configured properly (flaps/slats, etc.)

    Then one of the ADAT crew decided to pull the circuit breaker on the Ground Proximity Sensor to silence the alarm. This fools the aircraft into thinking it is in the air. The computers automatically released all the brakes and set the aircraft rocketing forward.

    The ADAT crew had no idea that this is a safety feature so that pilots can't land with the brakes on.

    Not one member of the seven-man Arab crew was smart enough to throttle back the engines from their max power setting, so the $200 million brand-new aircraft crashed into a blast barrier, totalling it.

    The extent of injuries to the crew is unknown due to the news blackout in the major media in France and elsewhere. Because........

    Coverage of the story was deemed insulting to Muslim Arabs & the French.

    Finally, the photos are starting to leak out.

    One French Airbus: $200 million dollars
    Untrained Arab Flight Crew: $300,000 Yearly Salary
    Unread Operating Manual: $300
    Aircraft meets retaining wall and the wall wins.
    PRICELESS!!!

  8. We used to deliver the aluminium stringers to the Airbus factory at Broughton and remember the lads that worked there showing us the pictures from the company intranet just after it happend. They were rubbing their hands with glee thinking here comes more work for a replacement. Not new at all.
