Now this is a real landing, though.
Do you have any idea how big an A320 is?, it's called the "Airbus" for a reason..
At that point, might be better off simply doing a belly landing to maximize stopping friction.
But will it take off from said carrier? :colbert:
I'm inclined to agree. Bush planes are light planes designed to fly damn well at low speeds. An Airbus handles like a flying cow.
Bush plane landings are done in areas where they are designed to be operated in, the A320 is not designed to work with such small runways.
Why are you posting a flight sim landing?, a 3 year old 5 seconds in can tell it's fake..
The only thing that had me go WTF was why the airport wasn't built for an easy line up, but other than that it seemed routine for me.
Landing in crosswinds is a different matter though. I hope I never have to deal with that experience. D:
Clearly neither of you have ever flown a plane.
Well, the geography of the area essentially dictates how to build an airport. You have to have a lot of open space, first and foremost, unimpeded by rivers and relatively flat.
Could they have aligned the airport in a better spot to facilitate a better approach? Maybe, but it'd likely been much more expensive to build.
No shit Sherlock, you don't have to be a pilot to realize you can't land a jumbo jet on an aircraft carrier, geez....
Yea, there's a few awesome crosswind landings on YT, that's where the pilot really earns his/her dough, sideslipping 100+ tons of aircraft on to a runway takes serious skills..
I did say it was fake. Also, check your sarcasm meter, it either needs new batteries, or it's broken.
No, it's me, I can be an ass at times..
Bought a full Saitek HOTAS setup, TrackIR Pro 4, Logitech rudder...then we had a kid and I haven't touched the stuff in 2+ years.
The video evidence is quite clear.
You need to give your wife a warning and write her up for failing to do her job.
Strap some JATO bottles on it...
So, the pilot in the OP is flogging this thing in and around the hills, and just as he's dropping it on the runway... the plane calls him a 'retard?' That's not very nice...
pretty cool that the "bitchin' betty" has a british accent. I guess they can program it to sound however they like. Nice approach though....and that runway is only 500 feet shorter than LGA
The scenery looked a great deal less inviting than LGA
It reminded me more of Juneau. Inconvenient hill on final.
It doesn't look harder than the old HK airport??
JATO was used on the C130, I don't think they are fitted for nor would they be enough for the C5, it truly is a huge airplane, one flew over my house (it was part of an air show that weekend), it was like OMFG how does something THAT big fly!.."Retard" is the planes computer to retard or reduce the engine's power so the plane can flare and settle on the runway..
Interesting stuff... makes me want to do more flight testing. I should talk to my boss about that.
once you've seen this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RugjHovWX8s everything else is tame
...I know. JATO is old school. For those of you who don't know... JATO.
...and, yes, I know what 'retard' is, too. It just struck me as funny after all the skill the pilot was demonstrating and just as he starts to flare... the plane tells him he a retard. (Think of it as HAL9000 telling Dave... "I'm sorry, Dave, but I can't do that because you are a retard."
