Pilot lands his F111 without the undercarriage

Recommended Posts

This is the news report of the incident - how annoying is the presenter?

This appears to be amatuer footage of the landing

Says he had to fly around for 3 hours to burn off most of his fuel before attempting his landing. i bet he was touching cloth that whole time ;)

As a want-to-be a pilot and have a slight knowledge on planes, this is quite unbelievable.

I can't get sound so don't know if it's been explained on the clip, but surely the best thing to do in that situation would be to eject in an unpopulated area or over water?

Yeah right!

RobW would kicked the floor out and landed it on his bare feet, holding each wing as if he was gathering up the hem of his kilt whilst running through a muddy puddle.

I bet things like that make him wonder why he bothered to invent powered flight in the first place.

And you'd think he'd be a little more understanding about Tour de France drug fiends given his key consultational role in the development of the wheel.

Isn't it more about the fact that they stole his wheel design for the manufacture of said drugs???
