What is happening at LIRF / FCO??

Recommended Posts

It seems that some planes are "grounded" on the grass (get the joke?? HA HA).And why are they parked so close to each other?? Especially the DC-9 (or MD) parked sniffing the engine of (what seems to be) a Boeing 737-200http://img470.imageshack.us/img470/2726/untitled5vf.jpg:-hmmm :-hmmm :-hmmm :-hmmm :-hmmm :-newbie

>>And why are they parked so close to each other??ok little guy. Come on, have a seat. You're old enough to hear this.When two planes love each other very very much, sometimes they will park close together like that. It's important for you to remember though, that you shouldn't park close to just any plane. Some planes, for example those dirty Navy planes, have folding wings and if you get too close the wings will unfold and smack you! And some planes have rust, or micro fractures in their internal structure. All of that is a result of the way they choose to live their lives.Do you have any questions?

You can see something similar at almost any airport which is a home base for an airline / fleet or a maintenance center.Most aircraft are parked with a tow tractor and moved with a tug into a different location before engines start.The only aircraft parked with plenty of room - and the only parking modelable in Flight Simulator - is those with a quick turnaround.Check out the way the aircraft are almost stacked on top of each other at KVNY in the thread about the MS "Earth" product. Or Google's satellite photos of KATL.But that is a good photo...
