10 Testing Endurance Of Airplanes

Testing Endurance Of Airplanes


Did you know that not every plane can be reliable enough? Let's visit a workshop with restricted access where static load tests of aviation equipment used to be performed. The tests ensured that the plane wouldn't be broken in the air due to heavy loads.

Static trials represent an experimental test method of defected mode and static strength of a plane construction. Static trials evaluate actual strength of a plane with the help of its testing before destruction. The place looked rather impressive. A huge Il-76TD is presented in the picture. The first flight was made on May 5, 1982.

Static trials are necessary as methods of projection and estimation of airplanes for their endurance used in the machine construction are ideal and different from reality. The workshop in the picture is very high which makes tests of both small and large airplanes possible.

    Abandoned, but at least not destroyed.

    The place look well, I imagine that exist interest in the world for such tests… at least to relocate the lab.

    Perhaps if this place was still funded and operational Russian aircraft would not fall out of the sky or crash on takeoff quite so much.

    Nice place! Is that at Khodinka field in Moscow??

    Looks in very good shape for being abandoned, but have never seen so much abandonment as in Russia.

      Vy, konechno, ne budet. Vy tolʹko posmotrite, chto vy hotite uvidetʹ, i eto, chto vse ploho v Rossii ili russkogo proishozhdeniya.

      Today’s Russia is the “winner” of most “abandonment” achievement award ! ! ! ! ! ! in the history of mankind.

    Abandoned??? Ridiculous!!!!!!

    Where is this?
