If you or a good friend works at the West Plains Goodrich brake production site, watch this video. It will make you feel proud of American technology.
The video, produced by Boeing and found on YouTube on Wednesday, shows what happens when the Boeing 747 Dreamliner is forced to abort a full-speed takeoff on the runway.
The massive kinetic energy of the aircraft has to be slowed by carbon wheel brakes developed and made by Goodrich, at plants such as the one we have on the West Plains.
Quite a feat. Feel free to share this video.
