Reminds me of the worst landing I ever witnessed at DFW.

It was a NASA 757(Not sure what the military name is) that landed about the same way.

After about 2 bounces on the runway it finally touched down for good.  Laugh out loud

What a terrible landing. I like the title of the thread, just like the name of Nelly Furtados CD.

Maybe he was trying to perform a one-point landing.

Just a touch of crosswind on this one.

Milemaster : The NASA 757 has no military designation. NASA is not a miltary organization. At least officially.

Whoa! Look at the lower rudder so that upper rudder is not operated. You can see red truck on the road. The rudder was full right steering.

Does PF get 'kp' for the premature wear on the tyres?

galaxy5,

Where did this photo come from? Are there more? What were the circumstances of this landing?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Are these things (C-17s) known for tricky landings or could this be a green or not paying attention P-I-C...?

its a McCord bird and from what i know it was supposed to be a tactical assault landing, but they ruined the gear and had to stop.

Reminds me of strong xwind landings in LHR where some jets end up on nose and one main gear after touchdown with the pilots struggling to control the landing roll... (735 was the one I saw)

I have always wondered about this. I happen to love jets with overhead wings and T-type tails. The Avro and BAe 146's, and the military c-5's and c-17's are all great looking.

As I understand, these types of a/c are good with short take off and landing performance. I am not an aerodynamics engineer so don't berate me just yet.

However, if they truly are better for t/o and landing, why aren't more a/c designed in the same way?

they pay for their outstanding t/o and landing performance with terrible aerodynamics/ fuel economy at altitude

It looks strange. Although the tail and the fuselage in general don't seem to be that rotated horizontally, the right wing is about to strike the ground. It looks as if the right wing is lower than it should be. Am I the only one seeing this?

Doesnt Altus AFB have an assault strip? My friend was stationed there and he told me they were landing the C17 in hundreds of feet, not thousands. The strip is only 3514x94 ft long.
