Destroying LOFAR — Load #3

With no discernible damage to the tile, it was time to start getting tough. Rather than easing on a few hundred kilogrammes at a time, we decided to place a larger load.

This time the digger scooped up 950kg of snow. This would double the total quantity that was already on the tile. We expectantly waited for the crash...

... nothing happened. The snow fell from the digger bucket, now piling even higher on the tile. We now have a serious weight being applied to this HBA tile.
Load   Mass    Total
#1 400kg 400kg
#2 550kg 950kg
#3 950kg 1900kg

Still more snow needed!
