Collected and Contributed by CCT Team

This brand spanking new Airbus 340-600 sits just outside its hangar in Toulouse , France without a single hour of airtime.




FROM THE EDITOR'S DESK

ONE LINERS.... TO SAVE YOUR LIFE
THE INCIDENT OF LITTLE KNOWLEDGE
UNSAFELY YOURS
AVIATION HUMOR


Enter the flight crew of Aircraft Technologies to conduct pre-delivery tests on the ground, such as engine run-ups prior to delivery to Etihad Airways in Abu Dhabi . The Technological crew taxied the A340-600 to the run-up area.


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



The takeoff 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 Technological 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 Technological 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 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, totaling it.



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





Finally, the photos are starting to leak out.


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