    It was a test flight not a revenue flight. Not just any Sam, Dick and Harry are on test flights.

    I wonder if the aircraft is repairable, or will they just take parts to fix another
    airbus ?? Probably "strike damage".... altho the left landing gear looks ok !

    This is why you don't pop the clutch on an Airbus!

    But very sad about the fatalities...

    Actually I've seen similar put back together. The problem is how much of the aircraft is "glued" together - that being carbon fiber structure. It would look like the front fuselage will have to go back in a jig to say the least. I guess we'll find out soon enough if its going to be a write off.

    Yeah that looked like one hell of a ride scraping along at 45 degrees down the deflector wall. Can you imagine the "Oh $hits" that must have been screamed while that was going on? Man are they lucky.

    I read they were 3 min into an all engine run-up prior to delivery. It is a complete hull loss according to Etihad. I guess now the insurance company owns what is salvageable.
