I'm having a lazy weekend, so it's video time in between 'real' posts :)

This is one I haven't seen before; the ending isn't as bad as you'd initially assume, but it's bad in a different way.




Here's a unique take on the soft field landing. I didn't know it was possible to tail-strike a 152, but I learn something new every day.




Here's another good one. I can't tell if the tail strikes or not.



This one reminds me of the Honduras ones I posted last week. In this case, it's Culebra, a small island off the east coast of Puerto Rico.



I found this interesting. It's a balked landing where the ac touches down during the go-around.



One final one, a landing at Hong Kong's old Kai Tak airport that they salvage at the last second. Sort of. Nothing to see here folks, move along...

IIRC the first one is how they normally do a short field landing on the C130 by Diving in then flaring.

Touches down during the go-around is a bit of an understatement! :-)
