This one can never be posted enough. Absolutely textbook recovery and outstanding job by these pilots.

Some of you may of seen this video over the last couple of days but thought I'd share it anyway. A pilots point of view, watching two German Eurofighters intercepting a 777 (jet airways I believe) which from what I heard had radio problems over Cologne. They managed to make radio contact through emergency frequencies with the German pilots. Nothing special in the video but a good view of it, filmed from the cockpit of a airliner following the 777

What happened there then? I'm guessing new underwear greeted them when they landed.

Glad I watched the video before asking my question about that video. The question was going to be why the engines were mounted the way they are. But the video told me


However I'll ask another question, where there any disadvantages to having the engines like that? I like the design wish more aircraft looked like that .. I dunno just makes an aircraft look a little different.

Aaaaand while I'm here I came across a video filmed in ether HD or 4K. A B-17 and a B-25 flying over Arizona. Not sure why but the B-17 and the B-25 are one of my favourite world war 2 era aircraft

There a lot more disadvantages than advantages to putting them on the top of the wing like that. It's awesome for short field operations, as seen in the video. For just about anything else, not so much.

So your flying a harrier which is operating from a carrier. You return only to find your nose landing gear hasn't come down. What next? Or I'll just land it the nose on a stool. Pilot skills at its finest

This is a great example of poor CRM during what should have been a fairly routine emergency. An F-15 developed an engine fire on the #2 engine. It starts out with almost perfect handling of the situation. The emergency pilot delegates radio management, just as he should have, etc. But then when they are on final, it all goes wrong. The pilot comes in at somewhere around 350 knots, resulting in an overspeed of the landing gear, pilot induced oscillations, and the pilot having to eject because he couldn't stop before the end of the runway.

Very happy with this being at the airshow. I don't recall who exactly was doing the commentary, I beleive it was someone from RAAF or DOD in a fairly high level role. More informational than most displays -talked about how they flew to Australia with KC-30A support from Luke AFB, to Hawaii, to Guam, to Amberly, and finally to Avalon.

Yeah, you can see one of the mounts come loose, and then the other side fails, and off it goes.

Depends on the reason for the failure. If it was a stress failure, then without an NDI they probably couldn't have known it was going to go. If it was just that they didn't secure the engine properly, then oh yeah, he was looking for a new job later that day.

listing to his breathing as he is landing is interesting, you can tell he knows its not going to end well. but other then the last part he seemed very calm as far as his breathing goes.
