ON field LotW

Postby ATC_Ben » Wed Nov 02, 2011 6:12 am

Has to go to the crew of the LOT 767 that if ever Mr Boeing were to describe a wheels up in a 767 this is how it would look.

'Perfect' landing (if you can describe belly landing a 767 like that!), the Sully of wheels ups. No ripped off bits of aeroplane, no fire and everyone got off in one peice. Note how it hasn't even tipped onto its nose, the landing was that good.

Won't be using the aircraft again in a long while (if ever) but certainly a definition 'good landing'!

I can't resist pointing out that Robert Pearson, Chesley Sullenberger and Tadeusz Wrona are all glider pilots. Those guys really know how to fly.
