I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

I never did manage to blag a trip to teh Engine tests for the A380 when I was working at Airbus. They do that test for all new Jet engines that need certification. They replace one normal blade on the fan for one with an explosive section at it's root, so it can be detached whilst the engine is running. It's a pass if all the debris is contained within the engine, and it passes through the front or the rear of the engine.

It's just as good as the Chicken cannon they had down at Filton for testing Airbus components against "birdstrike". That was a right laugh!


PS. Inever did figure out why it is called birdstrike. I mean, it's not like the Birds have any choice in the matter. They don't see a plane flying and yell "attttaaaaaacccckkkkkk" before flying through the port engine do they?! Shocked
