Jet Efflux Hazard

From SKYbrary Wiki

At [1] there is a very detailed quite recent Investigation Report by UK AAIB on the damage caused to one of British Airways' B737-400s during a standing start full length take off from Aberdeen in 2005 which covers the absence (at that time) of ICAO Annex 14 safety requirements relating to full length take offs. It also deals briefly with the suction effect of jet engine air intake on the surface below as well is the efflux case and mentions some previous cases of aircraft 'self-inflicted' efflux damage.--Chris.stewart 17:43, 27 May 2008 (CEST)
