Remark Photographer
LZ-LDC (cn 49217/1268) Not something you see everyday, a MD-82 doing a tail stand after the weather has drifted a lot of snow ontp the tail section. Note the towing-line and how all the men are pulling the nose back down using their hands only. The attempt was successful and the nosegear was carefully returned to the ground.

Interesting, a plane with a VR of 0 knots :)

How did they manage to ease the nosewheel down and not slam it onto the tarmac?

Im horrified, I went skiing January 2010 and no snow to ski on but just a month later......booking for feb next year!

A visitor from Bulgaria posted Mon February 15, 2010:
When lightly loaded or not loaded at all, the MD-80 becomes tail-heavy. Thus it needs just some snow to sit on its tail.

Whoops... Interesting shot, unusual!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat February 13, 2010:
Not sure I would want to travel anywhere on that plane!

A visitor from United States posted Sat February 13, 2010:
No way snow could have produced enough weight to put this bird on it's tail. Definitely something else at work here. Not snow on the tail.

A visitor from Denmark posted Sat February 13, 2010:
Not a every day shot...

A visitor from Italy posted Sat February 13, 2010:
Beautiful days in Alitalia, at Rome Fiumicino, as I-DAVC are gone... Look at you now... :-(
Nice shot, however.

A visitor from - posted Sat February 13, 2010:
Goes to show just how finely balanced that plane is. a little snow is all it takes to tip it over apparently

A visitor from Denmark posted Sat February 13, 2010:
Wow! Do a plane really lift because of some snow on the tail? I didn't know that! 5 stars!
