No wonder nobody applauded (German c-160 landed short)

<iframe width="640" height="360" src="http://www.liveleak.com/ll_embed?f=a328f1682163" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

More info here:

"On the airfield Ballenstedt in Saxony-Anhalt came on Tuesday nearly a fatal accident. Nearly 1,000 people had, according to a report in the "Bild" newspaper gathered to the arrival of a decommissioned by the army transport aircraft of the type C-160 Transall attend, which was intended for the air museum Wernigerode. The aircraft touched down at about 11 clock on the landing, however, the approach became obviously too low. Shortly after the twin-engine transport aircraft touched down first with the main landing gear on a road that runs across the runway. Finally, the pilot still managed to maneuver their aircraft on the runway and there to a standstill, however, show photos that were published of "image" as well as a video that the machine missed some onlookers by only a few meters" from

- Not really R&N material, though.

Wow

Hope they retired the pilot as well as the aircraft. While the bounce over the fence was cool, where did they plan to land? Displaced threshold as well. Bad. Just bad.

I don't really think bouncing over the fence was part of the plan.....

Looking at the video, it seems he just clipped the edge of the road
and rolled up onto it.

Another foot or two lower and it seems regardless of the
suspension in the wheels, it might have been a belly landing
followed by a skid onto the runway.

That would have been even worse !

Naw, it was planned, that first hit, err landing, on the road dissipated most of the energy and speed of the aircraft. Then the resulting short landing roll.




If I had been the pilot, that would have been my story and I would have stuck to it.

Short landing by cargo plane on a quasi display flight...?

Even the best pilots get it wrong or something can go wrong...

Captain in this thread's case must must be kicking himself and also thanking his lucky stars.

I jumped many times from the Transall C160 in Europe and Africa, that's a nice airplane.

This C160 landing is..... Well... Interesting....
Thanks for sharing.

Good shot for any pilot to watch.
Admittedly empty but tough little u/c

I'm amazed it didn't wipe a few spotters out, they usually like standing right underneath the approach path. There again perhaps they'd seen it before and were wary.

Anyone know how 'short' the ACTUAL runway was in terms of a Transall?

This thread ties in nicely with last month's 'Landing' thread! Courtney seems to be remarkably quiet!

I reckon it was deliberate. Anyone here flown into really short strips? I've been into a few (Many times) and there aren't fixed distance markers so perspective becomes all. Easy to get a bit short - human nature when the mind's eye thinks "Ooooohhh, that's a bit piggin' not long enough".
