I guess even the big boys have to try a couple of times before they get it right. :)
Thats one expensive bomb fire!, lucky it didnt crash into the tanks in the background!
Thanks John for sharing Kind of how I do things "trial and error" method crash and burn only this time it was reversed it burnt then crashed to the ground.
Those firefighters at the end really look like they were loving their job.
I bet they sit around for months and months with nothing happening and were like "finally a fire - woohoo".
They used up every last drop of that foam :)
In such events NASA, must already have fire fighters team already present, I can see, they came almost after when every thing demolished.
Damages could be even higher.
Why are they still working on single engine landers, when Curiosity has already proven that quad/octo configuration works best.
That's some serious explosions @1:56, @6:23... no doubt about it, I'm ceasing development of my liquid methane / liquid oxygen fuels quad right away!
That's probably the end of the program. They would have already had a 2nd machine if they could afford to rebuild it.
Go the Blue Ball!
Thanks for the info Munroe to the guys involved it is heart break and serious stuff "It is the chance you take . As for the guys in the fire truck they would be absolutely elated with a fire .(no human loss) when I flew daily the
fire guys would be out doing practice runs down the run way to stay in shape. The only miss hap I seen them involved in in 27 years of commercial flying . One time a beech 18 put the wheels up to soon and slid 1000 feet down the run way (no fire folded the props back pretty good ) and another time they got a brand new 4wd fire truck and were showing it off for the local news media and got stuck in the moat at the fence at the end of the runway and had to get towed out . They are good guys trained ready and necessary.If something did happen they would be there to save your butt
Lol to the conveniently placed bottles of liquid helium(?) placed right next to it.
