I ran my own blog from November 2006 till October 2014. All posts are still online, but I don't have time to update it anymore. Please note that all images and media files have been removed when the backup was moved to a new host in early 2016. Enjoy!

All new Airbus plane crashes into croncrete wall during an engine test

16. november 2007

Yesterday an Airbus A340-600 crashed into a concrete wall in Toulouse, France, after an engine test while being parked at the airport. It seems that the brakes didn't work, and so the plane started to move after the engines had been started.

Nine people were injured, three of them seriously. The Airbus is seriously damaged and probably can't be repaired - it should have been shipped to an Arab airline Etihad Airways within the next few days.
