I can't remember if I posted this before, but after that visual scrambler there I'd like to present some eye-candy  |:)\
A truly awesome airplane with an equally impressive paintjob, and it's actually got a danish registration! I never knew there were any of those here and certainly not looking so amazing!

Oh, man is that weird! Optical illusions are pretty cool like that.

Hey Zaffex... send me an email when you can.  I have a question for you that probably is too detailed for the forums.

Thanks!

Double click on the video when it starts playing. That should make it full screen.

Callisto, it depends on what are you using!
Media player or Macromedia Flash.
IF media player - double click
If Flash - there is a small button on the right bottom of the player (looks like 2 windows) click that!

I was reading the italian magazine volare today, and I found an article related to the pictures that Phtlijynx posted. you probably know, but this was a B767 that went from NY to Los Angeles. during the flight the PIC informed of an anomaly of left engine. During the start up (it seems at least that's the translation that should be given), at 90% a compressor of high pressure detached from the turbofan, destroying the fuselage, causing fire and ending up in the external revestiment of another engine....
I give that landing a 9 . . . on the Richter scale.

D'OH!... yes FB... I had the site remember that I prefer Media Player awhile back (I get bored at work often) and forgot the other player was an option...

Stef - Do what FlyingBlind said  ;D

It's gotta be pretty scary when those engines come apart.  I always liked watching the Discovery Channel after the 777 came out and they had the documentary about making the airplane.  The slow motion footage of chickens (Chuck, look away) being shot into the engine and the blade failure test was fascinating.

they take chicken and throw them inside an engine to see what happens?!?!? to see the result of a flight inside a "flocks of birds"?...or better, the result of a "flock of birds" inside the engine?

Reminds me of the true incident that happened when the Russians were starting their own windshield strength tests. Time after time that they tried this, using turkeys, they would smash through the glass without a problem! Even the windows manufactured by suppliers that were certified and strength rate approved had the same result!

Finally, the Russians called up NASA to ask again about the test parameters.... when asked to detail out what they were doing, the NASA guys realized what was wrong.

The response given to the Russians..... "Thaw the turkey first!"   ::) :o ;D
