I expect that the CofG was very aft. The lack of engines would have affected that. I don't think the fact that the slats and/or flaps were out made much difference.
The tail normally produces negative lift...i.e. it pushes down. Depending upon just where the trimming tail was positioned, it most likely wouldn't have needed to produce much of that negative force to make the aircraft sit up as it does in the video. Basically, I think it wasn't far from sitting on it's tail anyway, so add a bit of a push on the tail and up it goes.
JB747 - I did a couple of flights (NRT-SIN and SIN-SYD) this week on SQ's 380's. Apart from a couple of short SIN-KUL hops I hadn't flown on SQ for a number of year. During both flights the Captain took a walka through the upper deck of the plane. One thing I noticed was that both were wearing a pair of white gloves. I can appreciate military pilots wearing gloves for various reasons however I was under the impression this was an urban myth in the commercial world. Do some commercial Pilots wear gloves? If so is there any particular reason.
Thanks in advance.
And given extensive ground school courses on how to wear them.I think JAL might, as part of their uniform.
I would add stupid to the labels, especially a 50 year old lighting up polair.
Police have charged an Arundel man with offences committed under the civil aviation act following an incident on the Gold Coast last night.
It will be alleged that around 7.45pm the police helicopter was conducting airborne patrols of the Gold Coast area when the crew noticed a laser light being shone on them from outside a residence in Fadden Close, Arundel.
The helicopter crew reported the alleged incident and police attended the Fadden Close address where a 50-year-old man was spoken to in relation to the matter.
He was issued with a notice to appear in the Southport Magistrates Court at a later date.
