    big oops!

    I guess this has been around the net for a while...first time that I have seen it....
    This must have been a tad embarrassing

    The caption read..
    You know you're going to have a bad day when....
    when you forget to use the proper method for jacking the tail of a Boeing 747 and:

    Could this damage be from something else?

    Looks like she's a freighter. Used to (and still do sometimes) see alot of those Luftwaffe boys at FAI.

    ANYthing with a nose gear will fall on it's tail given the (im)proper loading or unloading procedures.

    Can't remember if they HAVE tail stands for those things or not. I Know I've seen them one Dc-10's.

    So either they forGOT the tail stand (if it uses one)....or unloaded the containers in an improper sequence leading airshen to "take a DUMP"!!

    is RIGHT. Most likely SOME poor ground pounder got SUMpin' bad happenin' to him/her after THAt fiasco!!

    yup, they have big tripod pull around tail stands. Almost had a crew in Miami put one on its tail back in my LM days. Have to be careful to not drive the tailstand into the plane too, if there is too much pressure on it before the fuel and the rest of the load are on board, it tends to settle quite a bit.

    Holy EMOticon OVERload Batman!! Duck!!

    FORtunateley (at least for the sake of READing aktango58's post/reply above)...I am relatively SOber if still SLIGHTly hung Over this evening.

    While normally a disGUSTing state of affairs , I can only imagine had I read aktango58's post last night upon returning to my humble abode after another successful "first nite back" assualt on my favorite spirits vendor...

    Well, I most certainly would've PROMPTLY fallen out of my swivel office chair as soon as all the "lively" emoticons "swam" into view.

    As it is...I tried to read it twice to figure out WHAT the boy is SAYing??

    Maybe I'll look at it again after a couple of aspirin and a good night's have further steadied my peepers in the morning.

    Lets see. How do you make that look good on your resume? Since you would be looking for a new job......

    How about:

    "Recent Accomplishments - Initiated the repair of a 747"

    or

    "Created a major training opportunity"

    Seems a shame to fire the guy. He would absolutely be the LAST person to do that mistake again. Nothing like experience.
