Hi all

I found this clip on video.google.com of an MD80 on a very positive landing causing the empennage to break of. There are some marking on the a/c but I'm not sure if it was a test or a regular line/charter flight. Anyone know more about it?

I have a brother to be stationed there soon. There are many more stories about aircraft testing gone wrong at this AFB with it's dry lake bed flat surfaces - perfect for dangerous tests.

My brother has walked around and saw numerous bits and pieces of (some famous) aircraft which came to a fiery end out in the desert surrounding the base when he was last on TDY there.

seems like the perfect use of an MD-80 (ducking incoming!!)
