X-5099 Now for something completely different

Post by LTFT5 » Mon Jun 20, 2016 7:50 pm

Hi to all
This sequence of shots was taken at the Meiringen 75th Anniversary show.
X-5099 simulates an engine fire on the ground providing vital training for the emergency services in pilot rescue and putting out an engine fire.

It had a fantastic sound system for engine noise too. Not bad for a wooden model.

Unless you was there.....then it was about 4 times a day ha ha! And we still kept double checking if it was real.

Looking forwards to seeing the rest of the trip Andy.

Cheers,

Kevin
