Nice pictures from above, as usually!!! Very nice!
I like desert - don't know, why...
Abandoned airport? - Why? So large city and that airport - it was old, previous?
“Relax, all right? My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools. I can fix it.”
Actually, it’s not that big of a deal out in the system. I have a pin kit that isn’t that hard to disable the thrust reverser and its opposite paired motor on the other wing. Then the engine that has the problem I put 14 bolts in all three thrust reverser cowlings to physically keep the doors from moving. Only penalty is a longer stopping distance having to rely on only two engines and more brakes to stop after landing.
I think, that bird can land without any reversers at most runways with only wheelbrakes. Interesting, how much length without? Is it will stop in 3 kilometers? I think, yes:-))) Even with nominal load... IDK, but seems every international airports have not less than 1 long runway, not shorter than 3 kilometers....
One longest runway, as I know - is 7400 kilometers. It's test runway of aviation institute. It can receive any type of aircraft without any brakes... (as they told:-))))
