Challenger Burns up on Assembly line

By 55Stepside

This pic was taken last week at the Brampton, Ontario assembly plant. Apparently a heat lamp got too close to the work order and the whole thing went up in flames.

This is so sad. Apparently a heat lamp got too close to a work order, and the end result was that this unfortunate Challenger never got to do a single burnout.

I like donnalove's comment...this is a major "oops" if I've ever seen one...Too bad and I hope no one got hurt...I'll bet there were some changes to procedures after this incident...
