Video: Navy plane successfully lands without front landing gear - all 14 safe

Recommended Posts

I didn't know that anyone flew F27s any more. The were old 30 years ago. From google: 

 

In addition to the 581 F27s built by Fokker, 128 F-27s and 78 FH-227s were built. In February 2010, only one Fairchild FH-227 aircraft, FH-227E serial number 501 belonging to the Myanmar Air Force, remained in active service.[citation needed]

Well done that pilot - but why did the fire trucks take so long to arrive

That would involve proactive thinking.

B-52, Hercules, Hueys, Cobras, DC-3/C-47s, just for a start (and that's just a few military aircraft) Some airlines have just taken 747s out of service.

 

Just because an airframe is old doesn't mean it hasn't been updated and modernised- in some cases they haven't and still soldier on

I never said otherwise.

I just looked up the list of RTN aircraft here.
