Video of the Week: Airbus A380 Tail Scrape
Last week, we showed you an A310 from FlyboyTV and promised more big-iron videos in the weeks to come — and since we mislabelled the A310 as an A380 on the home page, this might be a good opportunity to show you a real A380 doing some interesting testing. In this clip, the pilots bring the Airbus across the runway at minimum allowable airspeed and weather a pretty significant-looking tailstrike.
Don't forget to send us links to any interesting videos you find out there. If you're impressed by it, there's a good chance other AVweb readers will be too. And if we use a video you recommend on AVweb, we'll send out an official AVweb baseball cap as a "thank you."
