Precision flying ? check this out , the U.S military have released this video of a fighter pilot with no front landing gear touches his plane down with the help of a stool.... at sea no less.


When the front landing gear malfunctioned he had to land vertically, bringing the nose of the aircraft down to rest on a stool.
US Marine Corps Capt. William Mahoney explained that he could not even see the stool underneath his plane.
He later realised the crew of the USS Bataan had evacuated the landing deck in case he crashed.


Wow

That's impressive but I have to admit that when I clicked the link I was thinking "how the hell can that title make sense?" because I wasn't thinking harrier

WOW! That is insane...

Looking at the actual pictures of the damage at the end? How the hell is that even aerodynamically possible? Incredible. I'd never heard of this incident before and the F-15 is my favorite plane. Thanks for sharing!

While the pilot had something to do with successfully landing this crippled jet, the fact that the f-15 is an over engineered rocket with full wings was a major factor too.
