Blown over by landing/departing aircraft due to rotten fenceposts (lack of maintainance).

You not be more wrong. The fence is designed to collapse if an aircraft clips or if blown down by jetwash, it is one reason we advise that people do not stand dircetly at the end of the runway, the fence is fairly heavy and would cause some damage to humans.

Was at CBY on Friday, a 4-ship came in approx 10:20 and thn a 2-ship went up. After the 2-ship went, I set off to drive around the back, and came across the fence panel in the road. I believe that the 2-ship blew it down on take off. That would be (DZ) or (BL) I believe rom my records.

Ah. I'm not sure if it's ever been blown down by an aircraft taking off, so that's interesting. Maybe someone can confirm (I'm not saying I doubt you, just pondering...). It's not unusual for the fence to be scorched/blown down of course, as we've seen, but I'm led to believe that it's landing/overshooting jets that are normally responsible. Wonder what was different about that particular take-off to knock the fence down, when it seems to be able to withstand 99.9% of the other departures?

Just reading your post again, would it have been possible for one of the landing 4-ship to have knocked it down, just before BL and DZ took-off?

Seeker,

You are right its not likely that the jets taking off did the damage, it is normally when the jets on landing when performing overshoots.

I was on the mound when the fence damage occurred.

Damage was done by landing/overshooting jets and not by taking off jets.

Can anyone enlighten us as to how it collapses ?

Is it on hinges or semi sawn-off fence posts ?

I'm sorry,but I can't get my head around this,OK there's traffic-lights there but what about the photographers that insist in standing between the lights-isn't that illegal /legal ?

The worst I've ever seen was a load (20-30) of Dutch guys on the Monday and Tuesday before RIAT 2007,they had their ladders AGAINST the fence inbetween the traffic-lights (and so did a few UK guys) while multiple recoveries of Typhoons,Tonkas and Harriers where going on.
