  • Not an important fire? EVERY fire is important when surrounded by thousands of gallons of jet fuel...

    • @magna750 Having the fire melt the tires would of probably been better 1st. I think that's what hes trying to say.

      Throwing all that water on the wheel just made it explode.

  • The tower, ground crew and firefighters had all gone on a spontaneous strike in support of the postal and library workers. That was a janitor with a garden hose beneath the plane.

    Airbus to modify A340-600 wheels after RTO test failure

    DAVID LEARMOUNT / LONDON
    Manufacturer surprised by damage after brake heat caused tyre pressures to rise
    Airbus has to modify its A340-600 wheels and main gear design before it can pass the rejected take-off (RTO) certification tests, admits the company. Many of the wheels suffered structural failure in a 12 February RTO test when tyre pressure rose dramatically because of brake heat.
    At the Istre More..

  • Somebody forgot to check if the pumps were working on the fire appliances :)
    Someone else forgot about getting a stairs for the pilots. Looks like the fun slide might be deployed.

    You can see the Firefighter telling the pump operator to up the revs and then finally legging it when the tires go pop.
    What they needed there was a tonne of foam sent in by one of those cool cannons the airport boys have. Not some poor dope on the end of a hose.
