A Hard Landing

by John White |  | 4 comments

On June 20th 2012 an ANA Boeing 767-300 was involved in a hard landing at Narita airport in Japan while video cameras caught the whole thing. While the landing itself is entertaining, the damage to the aircraft has been labeled as "severe" and your can see the results in the following video: While it is clear the pilots lost control of this landing we can be grateful that no one was injured and can credit the strength of yet another Boeing aircraft. My son is an aircraft mechanic who flies on a Boeing 767 between Bahrain and various airfields in Afghanistan, and he tells me that this aircraft has more damage than the simple twisted aluminum we see on the exterior of the fuselage. This will clearly be an expensive repair! Recently I posted about the difficulties in landing the U-2 aircraft with some interesting videos; you can find that post at Landing An Airplane Can Be Difficult - But This Difficult?.

    I am writing a chldren’s book about Roscoe Turner and noticed the article you have. Can you tell me where you acquired your information about him? I am reading as much information about him as I can so that I can give the children a better idea of how important Roscoe Turner was.

    Thank for any help you can give me.

    PS. I have purchased the Smithsonian History of Aviation Series of Roscoe Turner by Glines.
