Impressive Landing Of An-124 ( Video )

Thu Sep 06, 2012 1:50 pm

First a sharp turn to get aligned with the runway, than a good nose down input to catch the glide-path, and the cherry of the cake, a little ground effect preventing an early touchdown....

I think this landing deserves the qualification of "interesting"....

That's NCE using the 22's for ya. About as close as you can get to Kai Tak these days, due to mountainous terrain and NIMBYs.
