Unsuitable trailer

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/m...er/8127078.stm

Rather suprised to watch the Police helping to load such a load onto such an usuitable trailer - maybe the CAA are exempt........

Having had afair amount of experiance of this type of thing I'd suggest the trailer is fine , the problem is the aircraft is in bits. The main gear sits between the wheels end, with the nosewheel extending out over the rear - however as it has been ripped off there was nothing for it sit on. Like wise imagine the tail sitting over the drawbar.

Wings then are mounted alongside the fuselage - root end first to balance up the nose weight.

BIG problems here as all the secure moutning pounts have been ripped off !

Trust me I've done it to lots of small aircraft over the years -intact & 'broken' ones .

mud guards bit of a grey area and no side reflectors , it had no foward facing white marker lamps though maybe exempt as boats are in daytime use but the long vehicle sign was dodgy a rear one forward facing ,,reflector colours now are regarded as lights ,,same goes for any boaters with retro reflective tape on the transom that could contradic the vehicle lighting colours ,,well one thing i doubt it would be overloaded , mart

The wheels look a funny angle as well.
