It should be noted that I carried a china teapot : in the same suitcase as the EDR (wrapped in bubble wrap); it arrived : unbroken. These sound particularly high when you consider that the maximum g-loading of a B757 is 3g. Approx 3 yrs ago Caledonian severely bent a B757 with a heavy landing of 2.76g. The aircraft took 3 weeks to prepare for a ferry flight from LGW to LHR where the aircraft was repaired over 2/3 months.
