The remains of the Airbus A340-600 (msn 856) written off before delivery to Etihad, originally uploaded by DigitalAirliners.com.
You may remember this infamous aircraft from the brutal accident that severely injured the ground test crew of Etihad’s A340-600 (MSN856) last fall. This appears to be all that is left of the aircraft at Toulouse. The aircraft was going to be A6-EHG, but was heavily damaged during and engine run up while it was still in test registration F-WWCJ.
The accident happened almost a year ago (Nov. 5, 2007) and was reported here live as the accident details became available. Coverage of this accident generated the highest traffic this blog has seen to date.
UPDATE: It looks like the tail made it to Paris for an environmental exhibition on the Place de la Concorde. Hat tip to LS for the find.
