Mechanics were working on it outside and forgot to set the parking brake.

These guys probably needed a change of underwear after this mishap.

Dave- How did you get that picture!? That is top secret! Santa has been testing that new sleigh design for rapid toy deployment for about 2 years now. Please, tell us who the mole is...

I'm in the Air Force and I'm not about to diss our officers (read: pilots in particular) because hell, they make more. But we have a routine called 'transitions' for new AWACS pilots (and guys who need their hours) and we do touch and goes for anything from 30 - 120 minutes sometimes...and sometimes this is after cruising behind tanker aircraft getting gassed up (re: air turbulence that no civilian ever goes through). Anyways, the landings they put us through makes me seriously reconsider my job flying on an aircraft twice as old as me for a living.

I have a video here somewhere of an AWACS landing (if you want to call it that). Basically slamming the thing into the ground with a 10 ton rotodome on top (see sig pic)...always conforting to see the wings jumping up and down after hitting the ground, probably why we have no windows....

Damn I have a cool job lol :)

Well, look at all the C130s we lost this past summer. Take a flying brick and use it for aerial combat type maneuvers at 40+ years of age and they wonder why the wings fall off.
