Air Canada 747 W/ Extremely Hard Landing

Thu Feb 19, 2004 4:42 am

Someone showed me a photo of an Air Canada 744 landing so hard that it buckled half of the fuselage...as far as I can tell, it looked real, but I've never seen it anywhere else.

Anyone know what I'm talking about?

There is a fake floating around, that combined the Air Canada paint job, with a still of that bomb resistance test they did a few years back on a retired, I think it was Air France 747.


It was an excellent fake. One of the best that I have seen.
