Wow, the Airbus is great, kind of reminds me of the TAP A321 trying to land in Lisbon:

http://www.pateb.com/dir/tapa321.html

About what the guy saying at the end of the spitfire:
Oh, f**k me!, f**k me, f**k me!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
Not a real british gentleman i suppose  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

It's funny though, how he has a heartache, and tries to hold his hearth!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Please keep the Movies coming!!

That was pretty good.

So you think the Spit was carrying a soft field t/o a little too far or do you think he just brought it down a little to low.

I didn't see him in the air, so I think he launched for that shot.

Is that TAP A321 video real????

That is absolutely shocking - wonder what the passengers were thinking??? And would a landing like that have any consequences for the pilot??

The TAP video is real. It even appeared in television.

The pilot had to land in another airport, I think it was diverted to Oporto.

If the TAP video is real wouldn't the aircraft need to be inspected after a controlled crash (I mean landing!) like that.

This one is a the first fully automated aircraft flown by a computer, an AF A320 it crashes in the woods after an "attempted landing" (and failed go-around).

http://www.violentcarrot.de/pictures/af320.mpeg

And this is something else that is rather wired, stormy evening somewhere at an airport and the plane crash after a bumpy approach.

hmmm... after watching and laughing from the landing video (reply 2) I came up with the following theories:

A. The pilot was FUI (flying under the influnce  Nuts )

B. The plane was pretty dirty and he thought it was a good idea to shake it around a "little" to loosen up the grime

C. There was a strong wind and the pilot mistakenly stepped on the brakes before touch-down  Insane, slamming down the nosewheel and causing the bouncing effect

which theory do you choose?

LHSebi, well it is not funny but I posted it anyway hence this is an aviation forum and people might find it interesting... I made some research and found out that it is an China Airlines (Mandarin) MD-11 that crashes while attempting to land in a typhoon at Hong Kong in 1999. Fortunately only 3 passengers were killed. It is flight CI 611 I think (as the filename).

That first one that Go4Eva posted wasnt that bad its the UAL one under it. The controler still told traffic to continue on the runways when she knew that the UAL757 didn't know where they were going and they were really on an active runway. I think it was right of all the US Airways jets to sit still even when the controler told them to move. That makes me sick just to think that there's a woman who is as stupid as she was and she's controling where they're going. Not to mention she was swearing like a salor at the UA jet for ?ing her judement and when she found out she almost caused a disaster it's funny to listen to the UA757 woman (i think first officer and that will bring up another thread that ill start and get no responces from) yell back. The first 2-3 min or ok but the last 5min are the most important i suggest seeing it!

Wow, those two NTSB animations scared the sh*t out me, where as the ones with the planes having some difficult landings and landings attempt don't scare me that much for some reason. And yes the UA 757 is crazy, they had no idea. And they controller got pissed off, especially when the US 810 said they will wait to t/o, which I think was the right thing to do. So crazy and scary. Lets hope nothing like that happens again.

To those who said crashes are not funny videos:

thats why I put 'funny airplane videos and airplane incidents' in the initial thread! Like someone said before, those are not funny, rather deeply sad, but still of interest to us aviation buffs!
Anyway, sorry bout the misleading title. should have just put 'aviation videos'

The Airbus settling into the trees is probably shown to all pilots in training. The voice-over is VERY misleading. The pilot was hand-flying. He was not sitting there with his arms folded while a program written by some propeller-head computer geek in a cubicle flew his airplane.

The angle-of-attack protection on the Airbus would have flown the plane out of that low-energy regime except that he was too low. It has to be disabled by ground proximimity or you would not be able to land the plane - it would keep going around when the energy got low enough to land.

The plane did exactly what he asked it to.

If I flew that exact same profile in any Airbus out there it would do exactly the same thing.

What would YOU expect the plane to do?

What would a Boeing product do?
(I can answer that - it would crash into the trees.)

I just watched the NTSB animation with the United - I sure hope that the controller working was fired. If an airplane is lost in the dark on a runway, I would have even known better not to advise an airplane to take off at the same time.

Tekelberry, get real. You fly a few knots above stall speed with gear and flaps down, towards a treeline much higher than you, and take no action til it's far too late. What do you expect will happen? A320s aren't VTOL aircraft you know.
