Challenge 361: 100 uses for an Air Truck
As I was waiting in Graz airport recently I noticed this mobile set of steps for getting passengers on and off planes. I don't think I've ever seen one quite so elaborate before.

It seems a shame, though, that this impressive piece of technology should be used just for lifting people. Surely there are better uses to which it could be put?

High res is here

Struggled for ideas with this one Steve. Looks like I'm first up, so guess the others are suffering too! Anyway, here's entertainment for the holidaymakers.

I love it Nick. Very funny. I did ponder the use of the windscreen wipers though.

Nick, Bruce, a couple of cracking starters.

Bruce, is the background supposed to move?

With a Basso Profondo the size of that one I would expect one's eyeballs to rattle thus causing the background to appear to move!

Ted has one interpretation. I say the awesome sound shakes the trees, but yes, it's intentional.

B'e Well.

Both of these got a chuckle out of me - a genuine "lol"! They're great.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments.

Diana, I love the lighting match you've achieved, it makes the image so believable.
