I’ll admit that I am pretty much in awe of airplane pilots, mostly because it seems like such a daunting task to land one of these huge things.
I understand so-called plane-spotters who hang out at the fringes of airports to watch commercial airliners take off and land (and am sad that our post-9/11 world has seriously limited this practice). That’s why I like driving the New Jersey Turnpike past Newark Liberty, where you can usually count on seeing at least two major carriers come in for landing as you’re driving.
It suffices to say, however, that I do not hold this landing that I stumbled upon on YouTube in such high regard. I can’t tell which airline this is or how old the video tape is, but watching it brings to mind some pimped out Cadillac with hydraulics on the front end as featured in a Dr. Dre or Snoop Dogg video.
Anyone recognize the airline in this video?
