How stupid can you get? Well, this flight crew will show you. Photos
Show total destruction of a $200 million aircraft, brand new off the
assembly line.

The brand spanking new Airbus 340-600, the largest passenger airplane
ever built, sat in its hangar in Toulouse France without a single hour
of airtime. Enter the flight crew of Abu Dhabi Aircraft Technologies
(ADAT) to conduct pre-delivery tests on the ground, such as engine
runups, prior to delivery to Etihad Airways in Abu Dhabi.

The ADAT crew taxied the A340-600 to the run-up area. Then they took
all four engines to takeoff power with a virtually empty aircraft.

Not having read the run-up manuals, they had no clue just how light an
empty A340-600 really is.
The takeoff warning horn was blaring away in the cockpit because they
had all 4 engines at full power.

The aircraft computers thought they were trying to takeoff but it had
not been configured properly (flaps/slats, etc.) Then one of the ADAT
crew decided to pull the circuit breaker on the Ground Proximity
Sensor to silence the alarm.

This fools the aircraft into thinking it is in the air. The computers
automatically released all the brakes and set the aircraft rocketing

The ADAT crew had no idea that this is a safety feature so that pilots
can't land with the brakes on.
Not one member of the seven-man crew was smart enough to throttle back
the engines from their max power setting,so the $200 million brand-new
aircraft crashed into a blast barrier, totalling it.

The extent of injuries to the crew is unknown, for there has been a
news blackout in the major media in France and elsewhere.

Coverage of the story was deemed insulting to Moslem Arabs.

Finally, the photos are starting to leak out. Airbus $200 million
aircraft meets retaining wall and the wall wins....:-D

Neoconservatism is a political philosophy that emerged in the United States from the rejection of the social liberalism, moral relativism, and New Left counterculture of the 1960s. It influenced the presidential administrations of Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, representing a realignment in American politics, and the transition of some liberals to the right of the political spectrum; hence the term, which refers to being 'new' conservatives.[1] Neoconservatism emphasizes foreign policy as the paramount responsibility of government, maintaining that America's role as the world's sole superpower is indispensable to establishing and maintaining global order.[2]
