And VH-RMM nose close up as they sit on the Eastern Apron after being grounded by CASA. All Ansett 767's have been grounded while CASA carry out inspections on the aircraft. 4 aircraft were grounded last week with cracks in the engine mounts and then CASA learnt that Ansett had operated a 767-200 on 8 flights with a faulty Emergency Escape chute. Their response was to ground the entire Ansett 767 fleet, and as at this very moment they are still grounded (15/4).
