I stumbled across crash data from the C-5 that crashed at Dover a while back. I’m not sure what the official “cause” was, but I’m sure it was pilot error with the mis-handling of the 3 engine landing. There were a couple of mistakes I noticed, but as usual it’s not just one thing going wrong, it’s many things at once. I think the last straw was the switching of the #2 and #3 throttle. This turned a mis-handled three engine landing into a horribly mis-handled two engine HEAVY landing. Pretty sad to put a perfectly flyable aircraft on the ground like that.

Very cool video of a BAE Hawk after taking a bird strike. Notice how calm they are as they gain altitude, attempt a restart, point the acft to a crash location, talk to the tower and eject.

Cool video of a landing on a very short and tight runway. This is at Princess Juliana Int.

F-16 “dead stick” landing. I guess that’s a pretty big issue in a single engine aircraft.

Short runway, big aircraft. Do the math…
