What Happens NOW?

Sun Oct 12, 2003 3:57 am

I saw this picture in Editor's choice. I was wondering what happens to the plane in this situation. As you can see the water is not too far away. The chances of plane doing a touch and go seem very inrealistic. Especially since the pilots don't know how much damage was done.

I just wanted to know what would happen to this plane. Would it land safely, or would it end up in the water???


This is the picture that I am refering to above:

The picture is compressed... Kai Tak's runway was actually much longer than it appears in that scenario.
