Subby could have selected the "ironic" tag, considering the news clip was sponsored by Delta Airlines...

/just sayin...

Ah, 'Airplane' will never grow old.. even after we've all forgotten the films it was lampooning.

Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit smoking.

Picked a bad day to quit sniffing glue.

Surely you can't be serious?

Also, awesome landing by the pilot!
 
2013-05-19 08:48:00 AM
I love that the guy posed with his plane after the landing.  Like a boss.

That is what happens when you come in too low over Macho Grande.

The Dash 8, Landing Gear Optional since 1995.

That woman looks like she came on the plane.

Also, getting a Dash 8 to sit level on a round fuselage without balancing on an engine / prop seems like hard core piloting to me.

Healthy Dash 8:

The plane stopped without wheels:

It's US Air.  Maybe the landing gear is managed by their famously reliable computer system.

Over Macho Grande?

No, I don't think he'll ever be over Macho Grande.

It gets your attention when something like this fails. Was on a Delta flight once, they came on and said "Our indicator says the nose wheel has failed, but it sure looks down and locked to us, we'd rather try it with the gear down and find out than belly land, so we'd like you to follow the instructions our crew will give you, just in case the indicator's right."

And it was down and locked, but man, it was rump puckering for the first few seconds. Although not quite as much as being on a plane that's actively on fire.

I just want you to know we're all counting on you!

Was in Mexico once, we waited and waited for the next connecting flight, a local puddle jumper.

Asked the gate guy why it wasn't there, and was told it WAS there, it just hadn't landed yet...go outside and look.

So I did. And there, going around and around Cancun International was a puddle jumper with two out of three wheels down.

"Eventually it will land, one way or the other, senor"

/missed it by THAT much...

How did they ever manage without 45 minutes of live helicopter local news coverage following their every move?

How much time does a flight from Philadelphia to Newark, about 90 miles, save you anyways? I mean by the time it takes to get to the airport (transportation?), go though TSA bullshiat, board, the actual flight time, landing procedures, disembark, retrieve any kind of baggage then deal with transportation to your final destination.

/oblig Airplane quote:

Male announcer: The white zone is for immediate loading and unloading of passengers only. There is no stopping in the red zone.

Female announcer: The white zone is for immediate loading and unloading of passengers only. There is no stopping in the red zone.

Male announcer: [later] The red zone is for immediate loading and unloading of passengers only. There is no stopping in the white zone.

Female announcer: No, the white zone is for loading of passengers and there is no stopping in a RED zone.

Male announcer: The red zone has always been for loading and unloading of passengers. There's never stopping in a white zone.

Female announcer: Don't you tell me which zone is for loading, and which zone is for stopping!

Male announcer: Listen Betty, don't start up with your white zone shiat again.

[Later]

Male announcer: There's just no stopping in a white zone.

Female announcer: Oh really, Vernon? Why pretend, we both know perfectly well what this is about. You want me to have an abortion.

Male announcer: It's really the only sensible thing to do, if its done safely. Therapeutically there's no danger involved.

I read that warning on the side of the plane as "No beige fluid".
 
2013-05-19 10:32:38 AM
So did the Dash 8 make jet noises for the whole flight?

The worst airline and the worst airport.

Knowing US Air, the only compensation they'll give passengers is a $50 credit that must be used in the next 120 days, subject to blackout rules.

That was in their pants at landing time.

Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing.

It's important that you know your crash position...

Why should they get compensation of any kind? I mean they got where they were going.

How many aircraft have an entire Wikipedia page all their own devoted to landing gear incidents?

It's a situation where you don't laugh. But that's not important right now.

Good thing the pilot had the lasagna.
