a retired Air India A320 was being placed at a training center at an airfield. <JUST> exceeded the cranes 'i don't feel good' point. Training will apparently commence with the chapter on Heavy MX: Airframe, Flight Systems, Landing Gear. Hat tip to the helo pilot, clearly not his first rodeo. (and a very grateful RC owner watching some serious $$$ get stuck in a tree)
First video gives new meaning to "crane strain"..smh. Helo pilots did a great job dropping it, perfectly, on the rolling deck, and aircraft retrieval.
some fun video clips to watch, I think. Thanks to the poster for my morning entertainment.
LOL... I think the Crane may not have been up for the job... That one certainly left a mark...!
Any reason why a crane was lifting this plane?
If they swing it around fast enough and let it go, they can get it airborne without a runway. Duh...
It was being lifted across the airport property fo use in a training school. It was one of an early batch or 320's specially requested by the airline for use on unimproved airfields. (Note the double bogey u/c.)
