Did someone forget to do a risk assessment ?

Helipad destroyed by large  USAF CV22 Osprey on Wednesday. Its crew had been taking part in medical transfer training.

May have been a little too large wonder who will pay for the damage ?

I was watching that flight on FR24 yesterday... thought it was a bit interesting. the type of aircraft.

I expect the USAF at R.A.F. Mildenhall, will send a few guys to the Hospital, to repair the damage, and all will be well by teatime today ! ! ! ..

They really are something, one off my favs, when I last went to the Royal International Air Tattoo.

But looking at the landing strip and the way it lifted, it doesn't look very substantial. Can't beat a bit of concrete!

Ever helpful. Grin Sure, I’d love to help you out. Now which way did you come in?

Hmm.... looks worse in the "still" pics..... however... if you watch this video.. you will see, it is actually some "surface dressing" in a field, near the hospital....

 

( about 2:40 on the video, if you can`t be bothered to watch it all...)

What about the Airbus A300-600ST i.e. the flying whale.
