Re: Atlas B744, PVG, Aug-5-2020: triple engine pod strike

That shouldn't be possible unless the left strike deflected the wing enough to allow the #2 to strike. I need to see a video. That is a landing rougher than I have any experience with. I'm betting crew fatigue. Give the pilots a wizz quiz and a Covid19 test! I've read a bunch on how Covid19's reduc...
