Good for runway deicing. Should make this compulsory in cold weather. Though I suppose to be helpful you would have to run the motor backwards so that ice in front of the plane was removed.First time I've seen afterburners used on the ground :) Whose flag?RobD.

I've seen this a few times but never in the dark! Spectacular :-eekLast flight to NZ, #2 on the 747-400 started up, belching brown smoke and crap for a few seconds. So much, it blocked out the window view entirely. The passing attendant leaned over and said 'that doesn't look good' and I laughed (heck, we had 3 other engines...). My colleague wasn't impressed.After landing in Auckland, my colleague made straight for the bar and downed a few beers. He then confided that he thought we wouildn't make it :-lol He reckons I have too much confidence :-rollThanks for posting it, I'll add it to my collection of 'whoops' shots :-waveRegards,**************Jonathan Point**************"I'd rather be down here wishing I was up there than up there wishing I was down here"
