As with other animals, the underbelly is always soft and makes for a comfortable landing

Did he crash into a text book? I couldn't see one. Pretty cool though strolling out with your luggage from a plane that could at any moment explode.

Your spelling sucks and you try to appear intelligent (in spite of that) by confabulating a word-you mean just plain structural damage. And since when is calling someone cool an insult? And is there any specific book I should read or can I pick a really short one in the interest of time? You, sir, FAIL on so many levels!

If you're going to pick someone up on their spelling get your grammar correct. As for trying to appear intelligent - confabulating??? (used out of context too) So I agree with you about the fal but you have to hand yourself one too, sorry.

Hey look! I'm an Admin too! (Notice, his and my name is GUEST: Admin... GUEST) How dumb can you people be? This plane has almost zero chance of exploding while it is stationary like that. I swear, Hollywood has brainwashed all of you into thinking every crash with any sort of vehicle ends with a huge, fiery, spontaneous combustion.

I'm sorry I keep commenting in a thread that started over 3 years ago. It's quite obvious that I have a severe mental defect and a very tiny penis. Again I am sorry. Sincerely Admin

I love how the commentators were almost disappointed there wasn't a fire or crash and burn. That doesn't make for good news. God forbid a pilot uses his training and makes a perfect landing.

Wow! Very well done! It is really nice to see some good news for once on CNN... though quite rare lately. I know this was shot MANY years ago, judging by the comments. Well done, and I hope he continues to keep his passion of flying still to this day. :)

Incredible =] Where was the fire prevention? The friction could have melted/scraped away fuel pipes which could spark a massive explosion. Usually fire engines rush out and spray it fo several days. Perfect otherwise.

WOW!! That was some SERIOUSLY AWESOME Piloting! Cheers to that Pilot!!!!!!! My Father is a Pilot, and has been his whole life & him and I both were mesmerized by that PERFECT "Three Reds" landing. Only ONCE in all my Fathers flying career did he have an emergency landing. He lost the (improperly installed) left float off of his Twin Otter Seaplane while landing on a lagoon in the Maldives. At a landing speed of 120knots, the 1st touchdown on the water, the float ripped off and he had to Throttle Up, so he could assess what had happened and what damage there was. With no Control Tower, or Ground Crew to radio him what he was up against, he knew he only had ONE CHANCE. At going through all Emergency Steps & Protocols, his cockpit became sterile, and in a FAST WAY. So, with 24 passengers & three crew members lives in his hands, he took that leap of faith & came in Low & Slow. Like above, @ the last minute, both engines were shut down. How he ever did what came next is PURE SKILL on his part. For 500yds or more he said, he balanced the Otter on only ONE FLOAT, skipping between waves, to bring it down as slow as he could. In the end, of course the Otter instantly, twisted hard to port, but never flipped over!!! ALL passengers & crew were out, with life vests on in no time. He said the plane went down in under five mins to its watery grave of 90meters. There is no B.S. about this story. To me and to all his colleagues, his 30plus yrs of piloting skill was the ONLY REASON everyone survived. I would of course never of wished this terrible event to have happened, but I sure would have loved to of seen it on video!!! DAD you ROCK!!! Luv U Pop!
