Its been a while since anything was posted on the blog. But, rest assured work has continued on XL231 as usual. Every Sunday and other days.
The Museum's final 'Thunder Day' for this year will be on the 7th August. ALL activities and engine runs will be on the Museum site. There will be NO taxi runs for this event.
One item of necessity is fire detection so, regular checks are carried out on XL231's engine detection and other zones of the aircraft. Pictured are the individual engine fire warnings during test and the 'attention getter' that was fitted as a modification to ensure the Captain saw any fire warning as it occurred. To operate the relevant fire extinguisher the illuminated button is pressed.
