Just been reading a long thread of bad-tempered posts on here - made me quite grumpy. Was about to leave, saw this, watched it - cheered me up. Fantastic, laughed out loud. Really loved it. Thanks

Great, really amazing, though I have seen it years ago, likely here. Still good to see again.

He was simpy landing long in order to have a shorter taxi.

Yes and pigs can fly, too! Although they don't have very aerodynamic noses...  

And then, of course, Airbus has the Beluga and the whale jet...

I don't know what the fuss is all about - totally normal jumbo landing....sick of all these armchair pilots deciding that ordinary landings are something extraordinary.....

Sorry, but while the special effects are nice it is hard to support the group like that and their nonsensical MSG.

The IFAW is a gateway eco orgization can can lead to harder and more violent and lawbreaking groups like Greenpeace, ELF, ALF and racist groups like Sea Shepard.

There was an OKC chopper filming a tornado a few years ago and it clearly hit a hog farm.

So, yes, pigs can really fly.

You mean like gun manufacturing lead to violent criminals... There are many labels you can attach to Sea Shepherd but how do you justify racist?
