XW544 Prep for roll out event

17th March 2012


TThis video was shot on Saturday March 17th at Bruntingthorpe after XW544 was rolled out into daylight for the first time since September 2011. It was important to test all major systems including the new brake pads (re-manufactured by Dave Webber) and both engines.


There where some teething problems with the port engine which where resolved by Julian, Francis and Graham during the afternoon. The video itself has been speeded up 8x but you can see the STAD being connected and the relevant engines being started - if you look closely at the port engine you will see what looks like smoke coming out at a couple of points (un-burnt fuel) before the issue was resolved.
