    Not that it matters now, since that aircraft has no engines, I wonder where they were going to put that airplane, on the roof of a glider store?

    I am not quite sure but it looks like they hit the crane boom with the wing of the plane. Is that what I am seeing?

    No engines just 10 tonnes of under carriage, um decoy on top of building makes sense now

    Something tells me the "Brute Force and Ignorance Method" was used in lieu of any Engineering Calculations of weight, height, angle etc. in this situation. Obviously the crane boom collapsed. Was it the wing? I'm not sure.
