Hairy, bouncy landing


At the beginning of the month I posted a video of a hairy cross-wind landing in England.

Now comes this one, in slow-motion.

All I can say is, if I'd been on that plane, a landing like this would instantly have cured any problems I might have had with constipation! Wow!





They say that "any landing you can walk away from is a good landing". Methinks this video is about as close to the ragged edge of that saying as I want to get!

Don't have that kind of problem on trains. Then, trains only go where they want to go. Not where I want to go.

My rule: If distance less than 500 miles, drive.

If more than 500 miles, don't go.

That, at the very least, would make me feel deeply unhappy about ever flying again.....

That was not so much a landing as a controled crash,just reminded me as to why i dont fly.

We landed like that once in a little puddle jumper from Cairo to Luxor. I saw God...and Anubis, Horus, Isis, Thoth, Bastet, etc. etc...

You might want to take a look at this landing of an Airbus A320 in Hamburg during this weekend's storm "Emma".

According to news reports, "only" a winglet was damaged. The pilot described the landing attempt as "challenging", the actual landing some minutes later as "uneventful".

1. Why does a BAe-146 have 4 engines? Because 6 won't fit.
2. If you can use the passengers again, good; if you can use the airplane again, and it doesn't take full power to taxi, great!
