Aviation, Safety, Technology, Travel FAR's & Humor!

Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good! (This is both)

It isn’t often anymore that I am TRULY AMAZED by a feat of aviation. Seriously, I’ve seen some astounding things over the years: A C-141 with a wing ‘blown off’ on the ramp because it was refuled without proper venting of the tanks. A mid-air between a jumper and a Pitts that killed both. A Harrier pilot bring a jet back safely inspite of one of his nozzles being stuck out of position. An F-15 landing with most of his righ wing missing (A real testament to MacAir’s design).  But this is truly one of the most amazing feats I’ve ever seen / heard of.  This took a lot of skill and even more good luck to pull off.
