The 747SP looks a little off but nice all the same.

Think another way, they must have missed Beijing so much that they kissed the ground with the plane

I once saw such a landing by a 747-400 with very little damage. It mostly came down on the nose gear doors. This looks a little harder on the SP due to it's shorter fuselage. Ouch!
