Check this out! Is it true ? I presume the DC-10 woud have crushed the car underneath it!

I think this has been posted before, a couple of months back if i am right.
Quite good though nevertheless.

No offense, but I'm not sure how any a.netter would confuse that video as being real  Smile Just look at some of the camera angles, impossible to get on a real airliner. Also, you would have heard about it all over the news if an airliner shut down the freeway in LA to make an emergency landing. It's a well done video though...I love the ending  Silly

Didn't an Air Canada 767 land on active speedway about 20+ years ago?

Definitely not real and it's been around for ages:

First saw this about 6 years ago on Stile Project, if I recall correctly. It is, however, an impressive piece of work that has stood up very well over time.

This video is total BS. 1) The car would have been crushed underneath the weight of the plane, 2) It would've been all over the news, 3) The freeway probably would've collapsed under it as I think it is an overpass.

Again, no offence intended, but, really, look how fast the car is going and how slow the DC10 is approaching......... totally unrealistic to think a DC10 could fly that slow. However, it is a funny video............

Folks, you have to use some "intellectual discretion" before creating a new thread. Re-read what you've written and ask yourself "will this make me look like an idiot?" If the answer is yes, delete it all and move on.

What? DC-10, approaching LAX, lands on a freeway, on top of a Jeep. What in this entire video represents France? Oh you mean the thread starter being French? And how everyone else misunderstood him?

People, stop flaming him, all he asked was whether it was possible, not whether it actually happened. Hence the title of the thread being, "Can this really happen? Hilarious Video".

So, the answer is yes, it might be possible for an aircraft to land on a freeway (it's been done before as stated above) but there is one factor that to me screams out "NOT EVER GOING TO HAPPEN!!" Because, we all know that old ladies don't drive well enough to risk taking one hand off the wheel and giving someone the finger. That sealed the deal for me as making it unrealistic. Oh, what's that? The car wouldn't be able to support the plane? Ok, then maybe there's two reasons it won't happen.

France? I must be slow in reading the posts. I see a flag of France from the opener...

If a DC-10 tried to land on a LAX freeway, it would hit every Caltrans sign for upcoming exits along the way. Never would happen.

'405: the movie' was and still is a great piece of ingenuity.

Close, it was a racetrack. I think it was a fueling error at YYZ and it had to make an emergency landing amongst go-karters.

Yes, the famous "Gimli Glider" event:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gimli_Glider

The link goes into better detail but an Air Canada 767 (C-GAUN) was successfully deadsticked onto a Canadian airport (Gimli: CYGM) runway that had been converted to a civilian raceway (in race use at the time of the incident!). The article makes a sideslip sound a bit unconventional but the feat was amazing no matter how you look at it!

Wow, never seen this movie.

For something 4 years old, it is very well done!

Could a MD-10 land on a freeway, I would say no because of the light poles and road signs. The Gimli Glider was a unique case, there were no road signs or light poles. Amazing that the pilot of the 767 learned to fly a glider as a cadet at the same airport as a kid!

Could a SUV support a MD-10? Hmmm... anyone here have a SUV and a MD-10?

Very funny!

Will everyone who's seen this before stop going about "seen it before" etc. Matey who started the thread hadn't and was kind enough to share so what's the big deal if you have seen it before?

Personally, I don't give a toss if you have or haven't seen it before so why bother telling everyone as such?

The original version is better than the compressed version on YouTube....it was produced using top of the line equipment. Seeing it in its original form is even more impressive.

The one thing I always wondered, Why land on the 405 when LAX is just right there?
And one more aviation-nerd observation, this aircraft would have to be going north/south over central L.A., that never happens, its always just one big game of ring around the rosy, east to west, and west to east.

Still, one dang funny video, even if it was a hundred years old!

This aircraft landed on a closed runway, that was converted into a drag racing strip. C-GAUN fin 604. Still kicking around today! I have heard the pilot was fired by AirCanada for the error he made with converting fule weight LBS/KG. And boeing thought the pilot was genious and picked him up as a test pilot. But that part is just a rumor.
