Toulouse Thursday night

Attached are some photographs of an accident involving an A340-600 in Toulouse (last night) thursday.
A brand new Etihad A340-600 jumped its chocks and brakes during an engine run in a bay at Toulouse, travelled up an embankment and slammed through a concrete retaining wall.

It is impossible to lick your elbow.

At least 75% of people who read this will try to lick their elbow!
