Neat Video Shows Two Passenger Jets Landing Side-By-Side At The Same Time

Video: The best part about flying on an aeroplane is that moment during the final approach: you look outside your aeroplane window and see the city where you’re about to land from way up above, and comment on why so many people have pools in their backyards and see how big the freeways are and delight at all the parks and so forth. It’s so fun! There’s so much to see! But the last thing I’d expect to see during that moment is another plane landing at the same time as my plane on the runway right next to mine.

Watching These Aeroplanes Try To Land In Crazy Winds Is The Scariest Thing

Here’s some truly frightening footage of aeroplanes landing at Birmingham Airport in the UK. “Landing” actually might not be the best term for these though because the aeroplanes look more like they’re spinning sideways and tilting out of control and praying that their wheels touch the ground instead of bouncing off like a basketball. These giant flying machines look more like toys than actual aeroplanes holding hundreds of people.

Watch A Fighter Jet Land On The Middle Of A Highway Road

Here’s really cool footage of a Swedish Saab JAS-39 Gripen fighter jet landing on a road in Finland. The Aviationist says both Finnish and Swedish aircraft were conducting a military force exercise at the Rovaniemi Air Base and on the strip of road. There are also pictures of the planes taking off from the road too.

Watch The Massive C-5 Galaxy landing From The Undercarriage

Steven Edmundson uploaded this extraordinary video of the landing of the enormous Lockheed C-5 Galaxy — one of the largest cargo aircrafts on Earth — from the point of view of its undercarriage.

New Nightmare Crosswind Landing Videos Will Haunt My Flights Forever

Video: We’ve seen insane landings before — those videos haunt my thoughts vividly every time I’m on a plane. And yet I want to see more. Here are two new videos showing the terrifying wind conditions over Birmingham’s airport in England. I just added it to my list of places I don’t want to fly to.

Watch This Virgin Atlantic 747 Jumbo Jet Land Without One Of Its Landing Gears

A Virgin Atlantic Boeing 747-400 had to make an emergency landing at Gatwick Airport, London, when its right landing gear got stuck. Amazingly enough, the pilots managed to keep control with only three of the four gears in place.

Pilot Lands Aeroplane In The Middle Of A Forest Way Up In The Mountains

That’s some serious skill. Not only is the plane landing in the mountains, it’s also in the middle of the forest. Not only is it in the middle of the forest but the runway is incredibly narrow. Not only is the runway narrow but it’s a bumpy arse strip of dirt too. So yeah. That is some serious skill.

Skydivers Fail To Open Parachute On Time And Almost Crash On The Ground

These two guys were enjoying their skydiving so much that they lost track on their altitude meters failing to open the parachute on time for a safe landing. Luckily they fell on what it seems to be a corn field and that softened the landing.

Neat Point-Of-View Video Shows The Vertical Re-Entry Of The Falcon 9

Video: The Falcon 9 performed a vertical soft landing test last week, and SpaceX got a pretty neat point-of-view video of the re-entry and touch down from an onboard camera. The camera’s glass broke thanks to the landing burn but the images of the rocket entering the earth from such an unusual perspective are really impressive nonetheless.

I Can't Believe This Twisting Plane Managed To Land In Such Bad Weather

The pilot in this twisting and turning plane must be ridiculously disciplined, have palms that never sweat, a personality that never stresses and big brass ones because that’s what it takes to land a plane in such shit weather.
