    Totally outrageous landing. I know it's a VTOL aircraft, but the grief in explaining that one to your superior officer. Brilliant!!

      Watch the top right of the video, I wondered how far these were apart. My guess would be a good safety margin. Looks can be decieving sometimes.

        That looks like showing off to me......but I wouldn't expect it in a commercial aircraft.....

                I remember seeing it on the news, must have been a couple of years ago?

                  Love the way the 747 just lumbers along, not a care in the world. If it were in a cartoon there would be a little speech bubble coming from the 747 - "What? - did i miss something?"

                      Talking about "outriding fences" and low approaches, take a look at this ATR of Cebu Pacific Air coming in for landing at Caticlan in the Philippines:

                      RP-C7250 (cn 779) Dangerously low, this ATR was actually in level flight when i viewed my sequence of shots, the white perimeter fence seen is approximately 3 feet in height, this aircraft only just cleared the fence to which i did not think at this moment would be possible. A Zest airline aircraft hit this fence only a couple of months earlier in a similar approach with persons injured on board.

                        Firstly that is a great photo, such great colours. But, i really cannot understand how such dangerous approaches to runways are allowed? With this and a couple of others we have seen there is no margin for error at all. Just the tiniest bit of wind shear and it will be a disaster. Im just surprised it's allowed.

                          Anyway, someone should have told this guy that his carrier sailed off an hour ago!

                          I would be very interested the story behind this accident. I wonder if it was an intentional ditching?

                            Here you go pilotdane, some sort of mechanical failure by the sound of it.

                            News article here,
                            http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/2168921.stm

                            Also, quote from wiki - August 2, 2002 - Lowestoft Seafront Air Festival (Lowestoft, England) - Flight Lieutenant Tony Cann safely ejected from the Harrier GR7 he was piloting after an engine failure. He was performing a bow maneuver at an approximate altitude of 50 feet over the sea at the time of the accident.[26]

                              Ride along as pilots defy death 1:31

                              Video from inside a ****pit allows you to ride along with the pilot as he lands a home-built airplane on a Florida road.
