What Does This Feel Like As A Passenger?

Hey everyone, I was feeling nastalgic and felt like searching old USAir images and came across this:

http://www.airliners.net/open.file?i..._id=1318939&next_id=1314527&size=L

I was wondering if anyone knows if there were any injuries, and what it might feel like to be a passenger sitting in this row. I have heard mixed reviews about DC-9 50's and MD-80 from various pilots. Some loved flying the airplane, others hated having to check the wings for ice in mid summer! Another problem was a more rigourous inspection schedule for airframes because of the length of the fuselage...I can't imagine why as the 753 and the 764 are much longer.

The plane potographed was a DC9-31. I imagine there would have been some minor injuries at the very least. What the heck happened, did they land on top of an Elk?



Do not bring stranger girt into your room. The stranger girt is dangerous, it will hurt your life.

It was due to a really rough landing. It would have to have been like this or WORSE!  scared

HAHA! Unbelievable!! Is this for real or? It still doesn't look like that landing created the same crease behind the wing than on that USAir plane.

I believe that was filmed during the flight tests for the aircraft and it was supposed to happen. None the less, it would have to hurt you tail bone even if the seats were padded!  ouch

WOW!!! That would have hurt my rear end, and then I think I'd be crapping bricks out of it as well, regardless of whether or not I was on the plane! Just seeing that as a bi stander is quite scary!!!

Well, I go plane spotting at DFW about twice per week and will tell you I have never seen an AA MD-80 landing that way. I hope to never see a landing like that either.

Are you sure? Why dont't current manufactuerers inflict this kind of damage on their new prototypes? It's an aweful risky procedure for the ones flying the plane too.
