Sorry about the bad quality pic!
Thanks for sharing.
we need bigger aircraft bhx can handle it these days prove it
What a completely superb event and quite a piccy even at slightly reduced quality, nice one Lee!
Having a tow from 56C to the Elmdon apron.
Nice one, Lee.
It can take off with ice on the fuselage but ice build up on the wings and tail is a big no no. Not sure if you know how wings are designed but it's all to do with the shape and the air that flows over it, ice build up ruins this airflow and pretty much makes the whole wing useless as it's creating no lift at all.
The weight of snow and ice can cause problems too. Think about the weight of ice then imagine that covering a 747 for example, adds a hell of a lot of weight to an aircraft.
It finally took off around 10-30pm.
I honestly can't see it diverting here again! nice if it did tho'!
