hmmm, were 2 fire engines at the end of the runway at Hawarden earlier, wonder if it was considering ditching here?

Sort out the reason the wheel didn't drop and a bit of paint and it will be flying on Monday morning  :y

In the grand scheme of things, there's plenty worse to go wrong ;)

Any injuries most likely to be from trying to use the front steps rather than the actual landing...

Last time I flew Flybe, they had to get a replacement plane, as our puddle jumper broke en-route to us (so a jet to get from St Helier to Southampton - that should have been the worlds fastest flight).

That was a longer than planned flight, as the pilot had to abort the landing part way through the approach as a light aircraft got in the way ;D

Another pilot discovers the expensive way to paint a line down a runway. ;D

Still, could have been much more messy. At least it was only the nose gear. ;)

I'd still consider it messy enough, if I were approaching the tarmac sat in that thing without one of the wheels down  ;D

My pants would have got very messy at the first sign of trouble. I'm not a good flyer at the best of times.  :-[ ;D

So when planes dump fuel, does that mean that they're flying along pishing kerosene out the back?  :o  :-\

Yep, but normally over water otherwise is burnt off.

Yes, but I don't believe the assertion that the fuel evaporates and disappears.  It goes somewhere, probably helps form a cloud and then comes down in the rain. Nice!  ::)

I'd be surprised if something as small as a DASH-8 is equipped to jettison fuel.

It's probably better than the alternative, which might well be fuel, along with bits of aircraft and passenger, coming down like rain. ;)

Dumping fuel can provide some airshow highlights....

Dumping fuel can provide some airshow highlights....


Although impressive at an airshow, this is not actually "fuel dumping", which is a procedure done purely to reduce weight, and the fuel is NOT ignited as the pilot usually has more on his mind if a jet is trying to reduce weight in a hurry ! This is a deliberate design feature from some years back when the vast majority of air-to-air missiles were of the "heat seeking" (IR) variety... the idea being you squirt out a small burst of fuel, hit the afterburner to a) ignite it, b) accelerate away very quickly, so leaving a small "lump" of superheated air, with a VERY high IR signature, behind you whilst you move away..... the heat seeking missile heads to the lump of superheated air, not you, and you escape its intent. This was seen as a lighter, more efficient protection system than kitting out an aircraft with the ability of firing decoy flares, which are limited in number and quite heavy.

Modern missiles are rarely heat seeking but usually radar guided, so this is "old tech" now .... but still has a "Wow" factor at the airshow, when the flame is kept alight far longer than required !!
