Crosswind Landings at Düsseldorf. Boeing 777, A330, A320, B737, MD82 (HD)
First of all I would like to point out that this video is definitly not as
good as my first crosswind video. There was no storm this time, it was just
a windy day with a few gusts. I hope you like this video anyway and thanks

B777 Stress Tests
If you're a techno fan, this is best played loud. If not, well...
0:00 Wing flex. 154% load.
1:11 Brakes tested at max TO weight, all tires at minimum allowable tread.
Braking begins at V1 decision speed. Fuse plugs in the tires melt allowing
tires to deflate before they explode.
2:31 Stall tests
2:41 Crosswind tests
3:04 Vmu: Minimum Unstick speed. Speed the aircraft takes off with maximum
takeoff angle. Used to calculate Lift Off speed.
3:16 Ram Air Turbine (RAT) for providing emergency power and hydraulic
pressure in the event of a dual generator failure (i.e. dual engine

Amazing how this airliner flew at FIA12, great flying and the Dreamliner
looked really good, those wings are things of beauty.
Boeing 777 Stick Shaker and Fuel Dumping
When an airplane slows down too much, the stick shaker would come in. This
is a stick shaker on a United 777 during a test. Testing on the fuel
dumping system is also included. PBS owns the footage shown.
Airbus A380 Flutter Test
One of the most dangerous events that can occur in flight is a phenomena
called "flutter". Flutter is an aerodynamically induced vibration of a
wing, tail, or control surface that can result in total structural failure
in a matter of seconds. The prediction of flutter is not a precise science
and requires flight verification that flutter will not occur within the
normal flight envelope.
The aerodynamic surfaces of an airplane are constructed so that they can
carry the loads that are produced in flight. For example the wing must be
capable of supporting the weight of the airplane as well as the additional
lift produced during turning flight. The resulting wing structure can be
viewed as a blade or spring extending from the fuselage. If we "tap" the
spring with a hammer, it will vibrate at a frequency which relates to the
stiffness of the spring. A stiff spring will vibrate at a higher frequency
than a more limber spring. This frequency is known as the "natural
frequency" of the spring.
Flutter will usually occur at or near the natural frequency of the
structure, that is, some small aerodynamic force will cause the structure
to vibrate at its natural frequency. If this small force persists at the
same frequency as the natural frequency of the structure, a condition
called "resonance" occurs. Under a resonant condition, the amplitude of the
vibration will increase dramatically in a very short time and can cause
catastrophic failure in the structure.
The aerodynamic forces which can induce flutter are related to the dynamic
pressure, or airspeed, of the airplane. If flutter-inducing forces are
present they will increase as the airspeed is increased. Flutter
characteristics can be explored by "tapping" the surface at progressively
faster airspeeds, then watching
how fast the vibrations decay or damp out. The vibrations will take longer
to decay as the airspeed approaches a possible resonant condition. In this
way potential flutter can be approached safely without actually reaching
the resonant condition and experiencing sustained flutter.
The method for "tapping" the surface varies. On some airplanes a sharp
control pulse is sufficient to excite the natural frequency of the surface.
In most cases a special flutter excitation device is installed. This device
will use either an aerodynamic vane or an unbalanced mass which is driven
back and forth at the known natural frequency of the surface. The device is
abruptly turned off and the natural damping characteristics of the
vibrating surface are revealed. The analysis is similar to the frequency
and damping analysis discussed under the "control pulse" maneuver, except
that the structural (or flutter) frequencies are much higher.
Airbus A380 Tail Strike Test
Full video of the Airbus A380 Tail Strike Testing also known as VMU
testing. The A380 Scrapes the tail during a test.
Boeing 777 tailstrike (VMU Test)
The VMU Test performed on the 777-200. Sorry about the monents of weard
soundings. This video is over 10 years old. PBS owns the footage shown.
777 TakeOff Roll Eng. Fail Test
This video has two parts. The first part show an animation of what happened
when the test pilots simulated an engine failure on the 777 during a
takeoff roll. The second part of the film shows a real video of what
happened. You can see how the pilots had to apply full right rudder to keep
the airplane on the runway. Mr. Santoni explains everything as it happens
on the video.
This video was taken at the 2004 Avsim.com Flight Simulator Convention in
Denver, CO. The person speaking in the video is Captain Frank Santoni, the
chief test pilot for the 777 Program, a position he has held since 1996. He
gave a wonderful presentation showing some of the many flight test
performed on this amazing airplane. Sorry for the lousy video and sound
quality. It was filmed from an old digital camera at the projection screen.
Boeing 747 Wing Tip Vortex Test
This 36 second movie clip shows the Boeing 747 Wing Tip Vortex Test.
As part of the overall National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)
study of trailing vortices -- the invisible flow of spiraling air that
trails from the wings of large aircraft and can "upset" smaller aircraft
flying behind -- the NASA Flight Research Center (FRC) borrowed a Boeing
747 jetliner for testing. The B-747 had been purchased by NASA for the
space shuttle program and assigned to the Johnson Space Center. Six smoke
generators were installed under the wings of the B-747 to provide a visual
image of the trailing vortices.
