Most airports have something similar. Sometimes they're elaborate, but sometimes they are little more than long steel tubes.

OP obviously has access to a search engine! I have asked on here as i thought it was the best place to come to get first hand information on what it is i saw. I honestly couldn't care less about flags or stars i am just here for information.


I wish you well in life.

Not at all surprised.
There's a few people here who seem to be able to answer anything.
Sometimes I just quietly back away and close the door on the way out.

First place I'd come for information though
Cheers.

A former member found a crash site years ago. He posted a picture of a piece of instrument panel that he took, and in less than 30 minutes not only was the aircraft type identified, the specific aircraft and crash report were found.





they underestimate the place

The one in Honolulu was a metal pipe with two flat sheets of metal sticking off either side. It didn't even have a fake tail.

Cheers for all your help guys. I only caught a quick look at it from the angle the photo was taken and it peaked my curiosity. I knew this was the best place to ask.

It looks like it's a fairly common simulator for that region. Like RadioRobert said, they can be elaborate, like this one, or just a metal tube.

I didn't realise they were actually made for this job.I thought they were just random aircraft shapes made up from any bits of scrap metal they happened to have laying around.

Most places don't have a lot of money to literally set fire to


They sometimes use an actual airframe, because then you can poke holes in it with the snozzle (and also make sure that you remember where NOT to poke holes in different models of aircraft).

Burn days were always fun. Walk out and see that pillar of smoke, and even knowing what it was there was always an initial "Oh crap" moment.
