Weight overload testing, pretty damn impressive!

I've brought in an A319 and have seen the brakes roasting something good. Walk up to talk to the crew "Hey, this normal?" "yeah" ****ing french. Don't get me started on the positioning of the air start connection...
I could smell the rubber on the tires burning!
I'm sure some drilled and slotted rotors would fix that :)
That's some cool stuff. There's a pretty good show about that plane on Discovery channel from time to time. They also tested the brakes with the plane actually overloaded on the runway. No flames but it was cool to watch.
Yeah,I watched it too . It was pretty impressive
Glad the CRJ's don't come in like that :)
