Nice Shot but dumping fuel(I'm assuming that's what it is) is probably not the greatest of ideas

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu August 23, 2012:
Are they performing tests on the ground? Or do they actually fly that plane?

A visitor from United States posted Mon April 25, 2011:
Give it some privacy!

Quite the shot; I have never seen one like it!

A visitor from Sweden posted Tue January 11, 2011:
The good old 741 is taking a piss on the tarmac

A visitor from Brazil posted Thu December 30, 2010:
I guess the guy in blue is bitting his fingers thinking "please don't blow" ¬¬...

A visitor from Canada posted Thu April 15, 2010:
Looks like the guy in blue is lighting up a smoke :)

A visitor from - posted Thu February 4, 2010:
I am guessing tanks were topped up on a cold night followed by a hot day. Looks like the fuel expanded and is forced out through the fuel cap which is at the bottom of the tanks.

A visitor from United States posted Sat July 18, 2009:
Quite awesome to see this

A visitor from United States posted Sat July 18, 2009:
Thats what happens when you exceed max take off weight good quality for all the liquid

A visitor from United States posted Sat May 30, 2009:
That's what happens when you give those big gals a little too much to drink. ;)

A visitor from United States posted Fri May 22, 2009:
I'm guessing they are cleaning the tanks out as both engine's cowlings are open. It looks like a scheduled process as they have 2 extinguishers standing by. There is unusable fuel in every airplane (fuel at the bottom of the tanks that mixes with contaminants that fall to the bottom.)

A visitor from United States posted Thu May 14, 2009:
Couldn't they have given this 747 a little privacy while it was taking it's potty break? ;)

A visitor from Macedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic Of posted Tue April 28, 2009:
Aren't they just cleaning fuel tanks?? No way they gonna let jet fuel spill on the tarmac like that, c'mon! Nice catch anyway.

A visitor from United States posted Tue March 24, 2009:
I just had to send this to my friend at the EPA.

A visitor from India posted Sun March 15, 2009:
We have a fire extinguisher here....just in case :)

A visitor from Indonesia posted Sat February 21, 2009:
Seems like Iran has plenty of oil sources, so they can spill it over :P

A visitor from Iran, Islamic Republic Of posted Thu February 19, 2009:
Wonderful catch dear Taha...Bravo!

A visitor from United States posted Thu February 19, 2009:
The guy under the #4 Engine looks like he's saying
" Oh my, I think I'm going to be sick."
The big guy in the white looks like he's saying
"Mama Mia, the big plane is a wetting on my tarmac."
Great photo Iranian Spotters :D

A visitor from Canada posted Thu February 19, 2009:
Glad they have the fire extinguishers there cuz if that JET A fuel ctaches fire they aint gonna have a hope in hell if those tanks are as full as they look!

A visitor from Germany posted Wed February 18, 2009:
This should be the fuel overflow valves (I think this is the correct name) opening. This can happen, if the tanks are very full, even on a 744.

A visitor from - posted Wed February 18, 2009:
Really rare shot from the hunter of moments!Tanx for sharing dear Taha.(ARafiee)

A visitor from Iran, Islamic Republic Of posted Wed February 18, 2009:
Jooon Taha. what an extremely rare shot you've hunted. Great!

A visitor from - posted Wed February 18, 2009:
Perfect timing! We can see a small amount of JetA on the tarmac. It means that the picture was taken a few seconds after de leak started! Right place, right time!

A visitor from - posted Wed February 18, 2009:
I think they are cleaning the tanks

A visitor from United States posted Wed February 18, 2009:
Looks like a MX operation with the engine open and the fire extinguishers on ready.
Really Awesome pic!

A visitor from Iran, Islamic Republic Of posted Wed February 18, 2009:
Really nice ..taha ...good shot from you (IRK7055)

A visitor from Germany posted Wed February 18, 2009:
Wow nice shot! it seem this old lady has more kerosene than she needs ;)

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed February 18, 2009:
Nice catch! Fuel venting?

A visitor from Iran, Islamic Republic Of posted Wed February 18, 2009:
Very nice catch dear Taha!great moment!

A visitor from United States posted Tue February 17, 2009:
Bathroom break!

Interesting photo!

A visitor from Korea, Republic Of posted Tue February 17, 2009:
Is this a fuel leakage? certainly no plane would do a fuel dump on the tarmac

A visitor from Canada posted Tue February 17, 2009:
Please don't tell me that i'm seeing JetA coming out of that B741 ???

A visitor from United States posted Tue February 17, 2009:
Great pic, they crew looks like they really are clueless on what to do - or why it's happening in the first place!

A visitor from Canada posted Tue February 17, 2009:
Fuel dump!, oo noooo!;)
