Looks like maybe this wasn't such a good deal?

Accident: Air Transat A313 at Rio de Janeiro on Dec 13th 2009, jumps chocks
during engine tests and rolls "hunting"


http://avherald.com/h?article=42431c73&opt=0
"An Air Transat Airbus A310-300 registration C-GTSF had completed a C-Check
in Rio de Janeiro,RJ (Brazil) and was undergoing a ground run, when the
airplane jumped the chocks, travelled across the tarmac, went across a road,
both wings hitting lamp standards and both engines hitting trees before the
airplane came to a stop on soft, forested ground."

Ooops.
