Happy I wasn't on this flight!

Sunday, December 08, 2013

Watching video like this airplane landing from a few days ago in the UK makes you thankful for all those routine landings (and another small reminder to appreciate every day and live life to the fullest!).

Note: For some reason these embedded videos aren't working on the blog page itself, but do work on the summary page here (if you aren't already on the summary page):

    Amen and amen. It's a reminder of how little we control, regardless of what we think.

    We weren't on that flight, but we were on one last year that was affected in a similar way. It is Scary I can assure you. Thankfully the second run was successful for them too.

    In the video I saw here the plane landed & then took off. I'm not sure was the plane landing or taking off.

    For me, it took a wrong turn on the runway, it rerouted me to google support and told me to try again in a half hour. Wonder if it's the same for all search engines....

    I had contemplated to visit my place of birth to see my brother. He is losing his sight To macular degeneration and so is my DH of 50 years happily married. DH wants to see his older sister and I want my brother to see me while he can.
DH looked at the screen and he said it has put him off.
He knows we will go. Pat in Maine. emoticon for sharing. Happy Holidays to you and yours. Enjoy those boys they grow up so fast, our 3 sons sure did. Have fun.

  That looks like a wicked cross-wind! I'm glad the pilot though twice and pulled up to try the approach again. It's always better to circle around and touch down safely rather than take a chance with the wind batting you around. (I just read this for typos and realized maybe I spend too much time around aviation nuts.)

    Oh my! Oh my! Oh my!!!! I am so glad that I keep my two feet on the ground! The last scene shows where the plain finally stays on the ground and I know that the passengers have got to be shaken up for sure and I pray that everybody is alright! Now I have to take a deep breath 'cause that sent chills down my spine! emoticon
