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 failure).

Airbus A380 Landing Gear Drop Test
Goodrich Landing Gear is a leading supplier of landing gear systems and
components to original equipment manufacturers and the worlds airlines.
Goodrich Landing Gear is found on leading large commercial transports
worldwide. Goodrich landing gear is found on the latest aircraft to enter
service such as the Airbus A380, as well as the workhorse aircraft of
airline and cargo operators such as Boeing 737, 747, 767 and 777 models.
Over the years, Goodrich Landing Gear has delivered more than 28,000
landing gear shipsets to Boeing Commercial Aircraft, including legacy
McDonnell Douglas models. This extensive experience is not only leveraged
into new products and brought to bear to mature products to enhance their
Landing Gear Services
When Airbus needed landing gear for its new A380 superjumbo airliner, they
looked to Goodrich. At 18 ½ feet tall, a single A380 landing gear must
support nearly 170 tons the equivalent of holding up five blue whales. The
Goodrich main landing gear for the A380 is comprised of four main
undercarriages two with four wheels each and two with six wheels each.
Advanced materials make this huge landing gear system ruggedly reliable and
In addition to the Airbus A380 and the Boeing programs in production, the
Goodrich Landing Gear team provides spares, overhaul and support to
out-of-production models including older Boeing 737, 747, 757, 767, 777,
DC-9, DC-10 and MD-11 models.

Amazing how this airliner flew at FIA12, great flying and the Dreamliner
looked really good, those wings are things of beauty.

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

Airbus A380 Tail Strike Test [VMU Test]
Tailstrike is an aviation term that describes an event in which the rear
end of an aircraft touches (strikes) the runway. This can happen during
takeoff of a fixed-wing aircraft if the pilot pulls up too rapidly, leading
to the rear end of the fuselage touching the runway. It can also occur
during landing if the pilot flares too aggressively. This is often the
result of an attempt to land nearer to the runway threshold.
A tailstrike is physically possible only on an aircraft with tricycle
landing gear; with a tail dragger configuration, the tail is already on the
ground. Some delta wing aircraft, which require a high angle of attack on
takeoff, are fitted with small tailwheels to prevent tailstrikes. Examples
include the Concorde and Saab Draken. Some aircraft, such as the Diamond
Aircraft Industries Diamond DA20, have a permanent skid installed to
protect the airframe in the event of a tailstrike. Others may be fitted
with a temporary skid as tailstrikes are sometimes purposefully carried out
during the certification of new aircraft.
Tailstrike incidents rarely cause significant damage or cause danger, but
may cause financial losses as the planes have to be thoroughly inspected
However, improper repair to the damaged airframe after tailstrikes
accidents may be responsible for fatal accidents that occur years later
(including the worst single-aircraft accident as of 2008, the accident
involving the Japan Airlines Flight 123) due to structural failure of the
airframe at the site of the tailstrike after repeated cycles of
pressurization and depressurization at the weak point of improper repair.

An amateur trying to land a Boeing 737 CL -- Baltic Aviation academy
http://www.balticaa.com Great news for our viewers! Baltic Aviation Academy
is back to the topic of amateur trying to control a big passenger jet. This
time Natalja, who has already tried her luck landing Airbus A320 from 2500
altitude, faces a brand new challenge in a Boeing 737 CL full flight
simulator. In this experiment an amateur acts as if she is alone in the
cabin and tries to land a jet with help of an air traffic controller only.
Watch the video and see if she has succeeded. Enjoy!
