Rather cool. Cool pilot that is.
Kudos to the pilot.
'Course the next step is to screw land completely and land on air!
LOL, the trick is not so much learning how to fly, but forgetting to land!
When I was at Textron, there was supposedly a lot of activity around a civilian version of the Osprey.... I wonder if it would ever achieve a business case. Boeing also had a vision at one time that air travel would fragment with more and more regional / short-hop flights. I know that's not what the link is about, but VTOL/VSTOL is very much in line with that.... 'Twould be neat!
That is really a cool picture. What surprises me is that there isn't an equal backup on the opposite side. Curiosity didn't seem to be at work.
Dear me, no. You just need to forget that you are flying, and you are. If you remember you are flying, and are therefore afraid of falling, you will fall.
The Ultimate Answer is 42, mind you.
Damn, I thought this thread was gonna be about supermodels.
I'm sure there was some rubber-necking but doesn't everyone see a plane driving down the road every other day?
Very neat picture though. I wonder how fast they were going.
*turns on fake German accent* Vee have vays of correcting that problem, you know....
Erm... We are all seeing that this plane is being towed by the truck just in front of it yes?
If you read the caption the truck is towing the plane away after it landed on the highway. Not bad, consider this a lot of the Eisenhower Interstate system here in the U.S. has special sections designed to accomodate B-52 bombers in case runways are destroyed.
You're probably referring to the notion that 1 out of 5 interstate highway miles were designated as emergency landing surfaces for aircraft. Sorry, but that just ain't so.
Meanwhile, I can't view the picture--getting a "Connection timed out" error. Oh well, I'll try later.
We had a small pane landing on Highway 3 near Hope BC two days ago, ran into some severe weather in the Fraser Canyon.
