I've seen videos of those before, that's crazy!!!! Think of how much practice it must take to be able to perfect that!

The runway at my home town airport is only 75 feet long.


And nearly 7000 feet wide.

If planes could land in a space of 75 ft your home town runway could accomodate dozens of planes landing at once.

Could that explain why you've always had to deal with a hefty crosswind?

So if you had a conveyer belt, and the aircraft landed on it, would it stop on the spot?  Wink

Interesting video  silly

How can a runway be 7000ft wide and 75 long?

Very serious my friend. I thought he meant 7000ft long by 75ft or does he mean a desert?

It was an attemp at humor that I guess you did not get. It was a slab at the drunk pilot landing joke.

I have a comic that was cut out of a newspaper by a friend. It features two airline pilots commenting on the very short, yet extremely wide runway ahead of them. Behind them is one of the F/As, who is noticeably concerned.  biggrin
