Scratch one Boeing 747-230B

by Volker Weber


These people look worried. That's because they just lost one Boeing 747-230B(sf) due to a simple mistake. Jack it up front, center, and back. And then lower the center but forget front and back.

Look at these pictures: This was a very expensive mistake.


at least it's a cargo plane -- don't have to worry about them fixing it, putting it back in service, and it being your chariot on some future flight.

Seit ich so'n Ding mal abgeplankt gesehen habe frage ich mich eh, wie die überhaupt fliegen können...

Ich habe gestern gehört, daß die Maschine wieder fliegt! LH hat wohl die Flucht nach vorne angetreten und beschlossen sie zu reparieren.
