Looks like he did a greaser , fantastic job
Wow great job. Seemed like he held his cool.
Great Job staying cool!
Thought this was going to be a juxtaposed about the girl a few months ago...
Looking at some associated articles it looks like he whacked a sign on a previous T&G that sheared his gear off. That's gotta suck...
Well still kudos for keeping cool after a big f-up. Would be easy after almost crashing to just go numb. Seemed to handle radios well and not freak out.
He did a great job. The audio recording left me with this question, however: how usual, or unusual, is it for a tower not to have a readily available list of emergency contact numbers for schools located at the airport?
Tower and airport staff spent a good deal of time on the recording, trying to find a contact number for the school. I would have thought that in a Class-D airport, information about planes and schools should be more readily available.
I bet they do now!
Well - not sure about the sign he hit, but on that landing he missed all of the really expensive signs... that's a plus! It also sounds like staying in the pattern for a few circuits probably helped him get past the panic and get the best landing possible.
On one of my early training landings, I got caught up in the ground effect and the engine quit! The instructor said; "Now you have no choice but to land!" I got the Ercoupe down but boy was I shaken and I was with my CFI! That guy did a heck of a job!
Is there a section for broke the whole dang strut off?
Eight minutes in before they ask him what flight school he is with after wasting time trying to get hold of ATP. I think he said Sequoia?
I watched this one when it initially came out a few months ago and from what I read, he wasn't associated with any of the big schools on the field (ATP being the biggest). Hence the confusion.
Many years ago, when I was solo student, I made the mistake of using full flaps in a strong crosswind. Excitement ensued following a bounce. The tower certainly had the number for my flight school then as in "3JT nearly took out a building just now" but the school never said a word until I mentioned it much later.
Sequoia is what I heard also, and some other word before that sounded like koro/coro?
I was thinking he might have said Socorro first then corrected himself.
Actually, Kathryn's has all the relevant information (whoda thunk?):
I was thinking about what I would do: I’m thinking as slow approach as possible and land as if I had a crosswind from hell coming from my good gear side... yea? Ney?
