Title: Hard Landing at Exeter!
Post by: Nick on January 21, 2021, 06:24:58 am
A West Atlantic Boeing 737-400F is to be scrapped after a very heavy landing at Exeter Airport. Reports that the pilot was ex-Navy and thought he was landing on a carrier have yet to be confirmed....  ;D

Jeepers, that's SERIOUSLY knackered!  :o

I've not even seen damage like on an airframe in a fatigue test rig, they must have REALLY banged it down hard.
