Chinese Solutions For Chinese Problems

.
They say, "don't ask; don't tell". But you have to see these. Just don't ask where I got them!

A Chinese airline pilot requested permission and landed at Frankfurt for an unscheduled refuelling stop. The reason soon became apparent to the ground crew.

The No. 3 engine had been shutdown previously because of excessive vibration, and because it didn't look too good. But this, apparently, had presented no problem for the tough guys back in China: they took some sturdy straps and wrapped them around two of the fan blades and the structures behind. That stopped any unwanted windmilling (engine spinning by itself due to airflow passing through the fan blades during flight) and the associated uncomfortable vibration caused by the suboptimal fan. (For anybody who is not familiar with a jet engine, a jet fan blade should be perfectly smooth.)



Note that the straps are seat belts -- how resourceful! After making their "repairs", the Chinese flew off across Europe on another revenue-making flight, with only three engines! The resulting increased fuel consumption meant that they got a bit low on fuel, so they just set the aircraft down at nearest airport for a quick refill.


That's when their problems started: The Germans, who are kind of picky and strict about these stuff, inspected the malfunctioning engine and immediately grounded the aircraft. Besides the seat belts, notice the appalling condition of the fan blades. The airline operator had to send a chunk of money to get the first engine replaced (took about 10 days).

The repair contractor decided to do some impromptu inspection work on the other engines, none of which looked all that great either. The result: a total of three engines were eventually changed on this aircraft before it was permitted to fly again.

It only goes to show how much value they place on human lives. You might want to think twice before you fly on a Chinese Airline...

I think their catch phrase is "Now, Everyone Can Fry...."


Comments:
aiseh chinese mah
always wan to cut cost down.....
 
Hahaha... I think it's almost the same like the local Indonesian Airlines.
 
So that was where all the pork chops got processed..
 
Waaa... first post in the Boar Year so serious geh...

And I shalt not fly C.A!

Kung Hei Fatt Kai Choy! :D
 
gong hey fatt choy!!!

hong bao dao loi~~ hehe...

soli wor, comment not relevant to yr post...
 
If they can do this to their aircraft, I bet their cars are worst. Thus, I never believe in China-made vehicles.
 
We all fall down. Oops. We arr farr down.
 
Chinese...wan sui...
 
*sings*

"come fry with me, let's fry, let's fry away..."
 
Pisang...Cut cost is one thing. Blatant disregard for the safety of human lives is another.

Selba...Yes, the recent crash of Adam Air has left many ppl in doubt about the maintenance practices of the budget airlines.

LB...Hahaha! Definitely a convenient way to chop up those pork chops!

Angel...this post very serious meh? Ya lah, warn ppl first mah...since this is a holiday season. Gong hei fatt choy to you too!

Carcar...Gong hei! gong hei! Its time you start giving hongpows...its time.....its time!

Chapree...I never believe in chinese-made anything! Cars are just a small fraction of their products. They don't spend enough in R&D. They just copy everything,hence their learning curve is not up to the mark compared to those developed nations.
I'm sure you have heard about chinese-made batteries for cellphones and toys exploding! Imitation baby formulas that killed hundreds of babies,just to name a few.

Simple yank....Hahaha! They denied stealing your space technology some years ago, remember? Next thing you know, they accelerated their space program and sent taikonauts into orbit.

Ah Nel...If you have a great idea for a product or a service, they'll steal it right under your nose and come up with a version of their own within a week.
FYI, there are exhibition booths in engineering trade fairs over in Hannover, Germany that don't welcome chinese visitors. That's because the chinamen are known to 'copy' the product before it even get a chance to launch in China. They have no respect for copyright laws whatsoever.

May....ROTFLMAO!! Michael Wong Boo Bleh version ah?
 
Egads!!! Hmmm I wonder if North American airlines are any better...
 
Aiyoooo they so lousy one ah... wah liao flying above ground dunno how many feets eh sumore they so chin chai ah??? seat belt to tie it up just lidat... My gawd... tenkiu for reminding I will not take CA at all man....
 
Chairman Mao once said he didn't fear nuclear war. There were 400 million Chinese. If 200 million perished, there would still be 200 million left.
Today there are 1.3 billion people in China...

Confucius held nation above individuals. Communists, likewise, hold Party above people. China is getting richer, but their mindset is difficult to change.
 
these buggers shld be consider themselves lucky to be able to make it to Germany to be exposed!
 
Flyboy...Don't worry. It's definitely better I'm sure. Otherwise, the get sued.

Wennnn...Russian Aeroflot is not any better either.

Khengsiong...Chairman Mao is a dangerous man. I remember reading the Little Red Book. He said; "In order to have peace, we must fight"
"In order to stop bloodshed, we must shed blood"
What a maniac!

Nation before self, or party above people don't work as they realize. That's why there are so much brain-drain when the smart and hardworking ones migrate overseas.
One up for Capitalism!

Leonard...I'm not surprise if the plane don't even have a Blackbox. LOL
 
Aiya, hak 9 sei ngor lohhhh. And u managed to get hold of those pics. Dem innovative hoh, we chinese, lol.

fucking hell!!! no wonder that airlines have the highest crashes ever!
 
Woah... thanks for the tip!
 
mmm hai har mahhhhhh? how did they manage to get the fan blades so dented?! n to think that i tot broken remotes and seats were bad enough.
 
Have u heard of this Chinese airline approaching Heathrow and requesting permission to land. In her typical British accent, the lady at the control tower said, "Nou! Nou! (No! No!)" and the Chinese pilot thought she said, "Now! Now!" and landed...and crashed!!!
 
Hey Cocka,

Quite a coincidence considering that I was going to blog about airline safety standards (publishing tomorrow) or rather, the lack of it.

Just a courtesy call to let you know that I am linking this blog entry to mine.
 
if this sort of standard can fly, now we know other airlines are charging us for aesthetic of the fan blade, dlmh ptui!!!
 
Dear All,

We are pleased to inform that we have a sponsor for the generation of program book for the party.
