Weighing a vintage jet fighter aeroplane
A beautifully restored De Havilland Venom jet fighter recently attended the world-famous Napier Art Deco Show.
It's believed to be the only such plane flying in the Southern Hemisphere and some lucky people actually got to see it in action.
But, sometime ago, Advasco arranged the weighing equipment to weigh this lovely old plane.
Here's how you weigh an aeroplane. Raise it off the ground - then place the weighing system under each of the wheels, add the total weight from each of the wheels and you get the plane's weight.
If you want to weigh a aeroplane, we also have an alternative system - we hire out truck axle weighpads - the plane is rolled onto or towed onto the weighpads -
and the weight revealed.
