A handful, training flight on a windy day! a little too hot trying to make the landing zone. made it ..... good bird

WOOP WOOP GLIDE SLOW! WOOP WOOP GLIDE SLOW! Thats the fun of the DC-8, no mom-in-law or pop-in-law in the avionics bay yelling at you!!

It is real life Mr. Pilot, not a Flight simulator.

Woooop wooooop "SINK RATE!!!" WOOOP WOOOP!!!

A visitor from United States posted Wed March 23, 2011:
DC-8's with full flaps always had a nose down pitch. They were real airplanes, they had to be flared for landing. Real pilots flew DC-8's.

A visitor from - posted Wed March 23, 2011:
Beautiful !

A visitor from Australia posted Wed March 23, 2011:
I'd say it is a perfectly normal approach. The long lens creates the illusion of a 'dive'. A nose down attitude is quite normal for most aircraft on approach. Full flaps,increased lift for same airspeed means more nose-down trim.

A visitor from Australia posted Wed March 23, 2011:
That fake pilot from Air india must have scored a new gig.

A visitor from United States posted Wed March 23, 2011:
Pucker Factor = 8.5!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed March 23, 2011:
This guy used to be a Fokker 50 pilot i think.

Great Pic!!!!

A visitor from - posted Wed March 23, 2011:
Rather that be happening in Flight Simulators Game not in real life or let it be the magics of the lens.

A visitor from Sweden posted Wed March 23, 2011:
No guts, no glory.

A visitor from United States posted Wed March 23, 2011:
Wonderful photo. Great capture.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue March 22, 2011:
Exactly the right moment to shoot!! Fantastic pic, impressive, even frightening. Thanks!

A visitor from - posted Tue March 22, 2011:
You want to know what the definition of a nose dive is? well, this is it.

A visitor from United States posted Tue March 22, 2011:
Great picture, nothing scary about that, just another day in the life of a freight dawg.

A visitor from - posted Tue March 22, 2011:
Too much lift from the wings?? That is usually solved by lower airspeed. Anyway, great capture, crystal-clear with interesting background.

A visitor from - posted Tue March 22, 2011:
Well I see SOMEONE doesnt want to Go Around.

A visitor from United States posted Tue March 22, 2011:
Aint nothin' a DC-8 cant handle!!!!!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue March 22, 2011:
Now thats a great capture

A visitor from - posted Tue March 22, 2011:
Just a Kamikaze approach due wind shear. Very nice moment!

A visitor from Poland posted Tue March 22, 2011:
Good photo! Did he land or go-around?

A visitor from Netherlands posted Tue March 22, 2011:
Wow mama!Def windsheer.great capture of this good old douglas.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue March 22, 2011:
FO to Capt: "That's a weird looking horizon we have there"

A visitor from South Africa posted Tue March 22, 2011:
Great and unusual capture. Pines on ridge refers to x- wind from cameras left. Guess you had to be there to understand this airplanes attitude!!

A visitor from United States posted Tue March 22, 2011:
Not every day you see a DC-8 in an apparent forward slip!

A visitor from United States posted Tue March 22, 2011:
Thanks for the great comments everyone! The reason for this aoa is the pilot is battling a strong cross wind and caught the typical wind shear caused by a large hangar on the west of the threshold. -ks

A visitor from - posted Tue March 22, 2011:
Great moment!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Tue March 22, 2011:
Amazing pic !!! I read somewhere that on final you should never ditch the aircraft towards the runway oh I think the pilot skipped that sentence haha

A visitor from - posted Tue March 22, 2011:
Great picture. Was this aircraft at MHV on 23/01/2011? I am quite sure I saw it there having some maintenance done.

A visitor from - posted Tue March 22, 2011:
It is pics like this what makes this site an awesome way to spend time

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue March 22, 2011:
Glideslope, whoop, whoop, pull up....... Excellent Capture

A visitor from - posted Tue March 22, 2011:
Wow....a tad scary shot! I'm guessing it landed ok though!

A visitor from - posted Tue March 22, 2011:
Yikes! That is scary. But she's a cargo hauler so no passengers to apologise to at least!

A visitor from - posted Tue March 22, 2011:
Looks like the a/c was empty and had to be nailed into the ground due to too much lift from the wings... it was similar with the Caravelles and other a/c...

A visitor from Germany posted Tue March 22, 2011:
I think this is the famous Sarajevo Approach.

A visitor from Sweden posted Tue March 22, 2011:
This looks quite odd. Any reason for the steep angle? The lannding went on fine I suppose. Great picture!

A visitor from United States posted Tue March 22, 2011:
The pilot's name is Karl. He used to fly Stukas.

A visitor from Australia posted Tue March 22, 2011:
WOW! must have realised that he was too high.

A visitor from - posted Mon March 21, 2011:
Looks frightening! I wonder how the view would be from the cockpit...almost like they were crashing.
