Runway Contamination Testing Experiences?

Fri Jul 07, 2006 5:19 pm

Hi folks,

I came across images of the Dassault 7X doing "Runway Contamination Testing" which apparently included "Water Ingestion Trials" at Cranfield on the FlightGlobal Website and wondered if anyone on here had any experiences of this type of testing or even in commercial service, experience of runway contamination on arrival or departure?

Apologies for not adding the images in directly but I'm not sure how to accomplish this!

Thoughts welcome!

Cheers,

Spru!
