  • What a shame it went up out of shot, I wonder what happned next????
    I got involved in pre-flight flutter testing of the BAE146, A/C001 (G-SSSH) and it was amazing to find that by exciting the tip of the (high) tail, on the ground, at the right frequency you were at risk of breaking the wings!. Needless to say we monitored the tail vibration closely during flight test.
    I was only an apprentice then at BAE Hatfield, lucky to have had such a great apprenticeship.
    Nice video Richard, good find.
