6th Apr 2004, 15:54

6th Apr 2004, 15:54
Oooooooooppppppppppppps....... :O :O

6th Apr 2004, 16:18
Well I missed it last week so thanks for putting it back.:ok:

6th Apr 2004, 16:31
in BRL's defense, it was posted on the questions forum, and not here :)

anyway, it was more intended as a joke anyway - trying to mess with a moderator :cool:

6th Apr 2004, 16:54
:suspect: Hmmmm, where is that little black book..........? :E

6th Apr 2004, 19:48

The TAP320's landing was as bad as the go-around. The man who showed me that is now a TAP 320 pilot :} This was a DC8 if my colleague is not mistaken.

6th Apr 2004, 20:19
Yeah SC, your buddy is right, it is a UPS DC-8. Thanks BRL for the video, have not seen it for a while.

6th Apr 2004, 21:04
My pleasure. I am always in awe when I see then coming in sideways at Gatwick when landing, some I have seen have been incredible, how they manage to stay on the runway always gets me. Hats off to you pros out there who do this day after day.

SC, do you have a link for the 320 or anyone have one for the 707? anything like this at all will do.

I have seen loads of light aircraft being blown about at Shoreham but watching the commercials like that impresses me everytime.

6th Apr 2004, 22:01
Was that at Grand Junction, Colorado, US?

6th Apr 2004, 22:39
I believe the DC8 clip was in Canada.

I've emailed my friend, BRL, to see if he has a link.

Hear hear,

Lets make sure JB stays, you know that if its not here we may all have to go out and make new friends !!

It has to be said that there have been a lot of crap threads lately, by simply ignoring them (sorting the wheat from the chaff...?!) we can make sure JB continues to be a great place.


6th Apr 2004, 23:52
I blame spring fever - it does seem to have been the silly season just lately.

JB (to my mind at least) is one of the great PPRuNe institutions and I think we'd be poorer without it. I can ignore some of the more spurious stuff, but I guess the mods can't...

Every night as I closed my eyes to sleep during my tower training!

(Issues! I've got issues I tells ya!)

I'm pretty sure it's Ontario, California (ONT) -- 35 miles east of LA -- on a day when the Santa Anas were really gusting.

Actually, I think it was in southern California during a Santa Anna wind. I'm not sure, but Ontario Airport rings a bell. It was a news item there when it happened in the late 90's. Can't remember what happened next, but I would think landing elsewhere was the outcome.

Yes, I will confirm the clip is from Ontario, Ca. (ONT) during a Santa Ana event.





for more info on Santa Ana's.......

These winds are one of the most phenomenal meteorlogical events one can witness. Winds can go from a gentle breeze to 50+ K in a very short period of time (in clear air). In a Santa Ana event last year at ONT, winds reached almost 100 K and some chocked 747's were rotated 30-40 degrees on the ramp.

Fook me that was close

7th Apr 2004, 10:13
Is it me, or has someone merged completely the wrong threads here???

No, it isn't you..............

PHEW.....I thought I was losing it! :=

Anyway, carry on regardless....!!
UPS DC-8 go-around in gusty Santa Ana crosswinds at Ontario, CA Taken from dc8.org/video. (looking at the location first time around I mistook it to be ont canada....) :O

You can clearly see the effects of the santa ana winds in this. It all looks ok untill right at the end then it goes wrong abit. I wonder how close they were to touching down, looks like say less than 100ft, incredible effort from the crew. What a place to build an airport though..!!!!

BANG! Plod didn't like DC-8's either, too smelly & noisy he thought....

7th Apr 2004, 13:09
Can't get the original post link to work, anyone else have the same problem?:(

7th Apr 2004, 14:00
Yep, won't work for me either.:(

7th Apr 2004, 14:50
I have just clicked on it and it works ok for me. A download box should come up asking what you would like to do with it, save, open etc. Here is the address where I found it. DC8 link. (http://www.dc8.org/video) <--hope this works as it is a good clip.

Or try this http://www.ipapilot.org/wind_plane_23_2.mov

I have a copy of the video of the TAP go around now BRL, but cannot easily upload to the web. If you want it send me your email address and I can send it to you! Meanwhile, if you want an interesting A320 landing, check out this site (http://media.ebaumsworld.com/index.php?e=hownottoland.wmv).

I don't quite see what the point is here.

Yes, it's quite an impressive go-around. Normal practise to those that fly these things.

Plane spotters should be referred to airliners.net

Perhaps that every decent pilot here realises that if this had happened to him (or her) then he may not have got away with it with all the tyres intact.

8th Apr 2004, 07:59
There's a site (atcbox.com) that has a whole lot of videoclips. Only "bad" thing is, one has to register. Worth it though! :8 :ok:

8th Apr 2004, 16:30
Never mind the tyres - not sure I'd have left with my trousers and bowels intact.:ooh:
