Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Maybe it was some oriental gentleman brewing up a goat curry on a gas burner on the floor in the passanger area. "Ethiopian Airlines', got to be a tad suspician there.....

  2. Dreamliner+Ethiopian Airlines=Chaos at Heathrow!
    Hope no one flying out for the next few hours!!
     
  3. Hmm. Does anyone have any Airbus shares they don't want?
     
  4. Saw an A380 flying over a couple of days ago on it's way to Heathrow. Looks short rather than tall from a distance
     
  5. A Dreamliner or A380?
     
  6. Just edited to clarify. A380
     
  7. Let me re-phrase that for you.
     
  8. They're massive and other than a few wing cracks they seem to not set on fire.
    Someone at Boeing is going to be grumpy.
     
  9. Someone at Heathrow should be grumpy as well. Why close an airport the size of a city because one aircraft that isn't on a runway catches fire?
     
  10. Hmm good point, maybe we will find out.
     
  11. Bet it's attributed to "Health & Safety".

    Hi-viz heaven for the busybody class.

  12. I wondered that as well? why don't they just drag it out of the way and carry on as normal?
     
  13. Because if Fireman Sam and his buddies are occupied hosing down a Wetdreamliner, they're not available should some other clown stoof-in on another part of the airfield.
