In the spring of the year, the test dummies have a blast.
They get to ride before anyone else. Today it was Liberty Launch.
We put them in place, fill them with water (for weight), and off they go:
Here's Tony, our maintenance director, helping to empty a dummy after its test rides (it's much easier to move hollow dummies).
Those dummies look a tad pale – drained, even – after their rides, don't they?
Ahem. Yes. I knew that would catch your eye.
The water comes out via the dummy's … er, belly button.
The last step for Tony is to fold the dummy's legs upward to help move all the water out.
It must be quite a relief when it's over.
