Airbus A380-800 Brake Test – Combusts into Flames!

Stopping the likes of something as massive as an Airbus A380-800 is most definitely no easy task and is certainly of utmost importance with passengers on board.

How does one go about testing out the braking system to make sure such a massive plane doesn’t skid off of the other side of the runway causing mass chaos?

In this clip, we are able to go behind the testing process of how the brake system for such a massive airplane is put to the task of slowing it down.

Check out the video below as a load is put on the brakes until the point of combustion when they burst into a ball of flames, hopefully yielding all of the information that the engineers need.
