Mind the side view mirrors on the takeoff roll....

Wasn't sure where to post this so I thought I'd put it here.

Significant damage to aircraft and ego. Fortunately no one was hurt!

(I wonder what it will cost to replace the mirror on the truck?)

Now thats interesting!!! Should of got the area cleared and the fire trucks behind his takeoff roll. Always check your wings!! Sometimes you forget that you have those long things on your left and right ...

Who among us hasn’t driven our plane into a fire truck after having an engine failure due to fuel starvation?

Can happen to the best of us. :roll:
