    According to Reuters only 6 were actually injured although 45 were taken to hospital as a precaution. It's a 737NG as well by the looks of it

      Well a 737-600 is a NG.

      Sounds like pretty serious damage to the aircraft, glad to hear injuries were minimal

          Indeed. It always seems to be the evacuations that cause injuries though.

            Sliding from a 737-600 must be pretty bad...but top deck A380!

                Has that certification test occured yet? Rumours were that it was in March sometime.

                  If it has, then I'm sure the Airbus website will have news on it

                      They're waiting for favourable conditions
                      I think they've even asked the CAA and FAA if they can conduct the tests indoors. "For participant safety". I'm sure it is merely a coincidence that the upper slides were blowing away in the slightest wind. :diablo:

                        The evacuation test shown on the 777 program 21st Century Jet was also done inside.

                        Participant safety is a valid reason as you do not want to put people at an unnecessary risk - they are all volunteers as well. A certain % would probably have done 1 or more slides previously so would know what to expect.

                        Did Boeing ever do a full evacuation on the 400 model using the upper deck slides as these would be of a similar height to the A380 top deck ones.

                          Seen a few pics of this 736.

                          Seems like a pretty hard landing had forced the landing gear support beam (false spar) to punch through the wing a little. It has dislodged the trailing edge flaps and the gear now rests swept backwards.

                            Just a valid thing: the evacuation is done "by night". So either wait for the night or use a hangar and switch off the light. No need to use " " because this is common practise even with super-safe Boeing aircraft.

                              Clearly I've hit a nerve.

                              The were meant to convey my comment as tongue in cheek. Perhaps a "" would have been better.

                                Yes, you did. Please understand that I go against claims if they have no validation and especially don't like if they are done "by-the-way". Feel free to do the same with my claims.

                                  It wasn't a claim per se. Just a tongue in cheek jibe.
                                  I am fully aware how these tests are undertaken

                                  There is no need to be so oversensative though this is not Airliners.net
