The massive low pressure storm system named Emma hit Europe with high winds and heavy rain. Gale force winds were recorded all over Central Europe. It is no surprise that this Lufthansa Airbus A320 was nearly blown off the runway by crosswind as it attempted to land at Hamburg on RWY 23. The pilot managed to avoid disaster in the last moment as the wing was touching the asphalt of the runway. The plane managed to land after a few minutes when the wind was calm. Passengers were pretty shook up after the incident and needed some therapy sessions at the airport.

Antonov An-70

The Antonov An-70 is a next-generation four-engine medium-distance transport aircraft, and the first large aircraft to be powered by propfan engines. First flown in 1994, this aircraft is currently awaiting orders. The Antonov An-70 was present at the 2003 MAKS ( Moscow Air Show ) where it managed to maze the crowd with a stunning air display. Also check out the sound those propfan engines produce…

Oh, @!$# !!!

This is really one intense video. Crazy near miss, or near hit. This guy passes inches away from an incoming airplane. After seeing this one I have to say i totally agree with him. Left me wondering though… what would have happened if he didn’t pop the chute?

I think after this close encounter with a Spitfire somebody needs a change of underwear. Guess who? That was really close, wasn’t it?

Achtung Spitfire

Nothing like the great outdoors

There is nothing like the great outdoors, finding yourself on a great lake, with a great view, your best friend, some beers, birds singing, fish taking the bait. Things can’t get much better than this. Yeah, but they can get much worse…

Crazy near miss

Two planes on a collision course can result either in a spectacular fireball, or, such as it is the case here, in a crazy near miss. Seems awfully close doesn’t it?

Sometimes, parachuting at your own wedding might turn out to be a really bad idea. And when you decide to take your friends along for the ride things might really take a nasty twist. You just have to see this one and make up your own mind.
