N7080D (cn CF21920935) Airventure 2010. Sometimes landing is not so easy apparently. This aircraft hit the ground with the right wing during landing, but fortunately made a full recovery to normal position afterwards! Must have been scary for the pilot too. Owned by Charles Yost.

Nice shot. Surprised to see Dean Wilsons Ellipse in the background, a very rare bird. Jim R.

A visitor from United States posted Thu August 5, 2010:
The pilot did not do this intentionally, I had the opportunity to speak with him on two occasions as I was working on fixing the damage that resulted. Our company repaired the wingtip, the end wing rib, and the aileron. Great timing on the shot!

I love general aviation.

A visitor from United States posted Wed August 4, 2010:
Good photo, it looks like a crosswind landing with the wrong correction applied. judging by the windsock in the background he should have let down with the left main first.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed August 4, 2010:
Perhaps the controls are on the right because the impact of the wing on the runway knocked the pilot that way? Or perhaps the pilot overcompensated for crosswind. I don't think any display pilot would deliberately apply full right aileron so close to touchdown, particularly in such a responsive aircraft.

A visitor from Mauritius posted Wed August 4, 2010:
Yeah to me also.. seem that the pilot did that intentionally.. u can clearly seen that right rudder and aileron are applied.

A visitor from Canada posted Wed August 4, 2010:
Probably started off intentionally what with the hard right rudder and aileron applied, but I think things took an unexpected turn when the wing struck the runway. Awesome recovery though since you state the pilot brought the aircraft back into position post impact. Heck of a shot! Born aircraft photographer here I'd say.

A visitor from Canada posted Wed August 4, 2010:
I don't think a Wilga would be doing such manouvers. Perhaps a bulked cross-wind landing?

A visitor from Canada posted Wed August 4, 2010:
Look at the aileron input.

Ouch! When I saw the thumbnail, I thought it was Kyle Franklin performing his comedy act.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed August 4, 2010:
Looks intentional to me with hard right rudder and aileron applied - are you sure this wasn't part of the performance??
