I thought that it'd be good to have a dedicated thread for footage of planes/choppers instead of individual threads. Weather it's a video of a documentary or just an awesome flyby, anything is welcome.

For all you Tomcat fans...

Did they not mean to rotate? Reading the comments, the 'plane wasn't supposed to leave the runway?

Throttles have been modified now (big piece of bar bolted across them) to stop it achieving more than 75% power. Still sounds as good though.

Surely just leaving the flaps up or pushing the stick forwards would suffice?

Landing Toncontin International, Tegucigalpa, Honduras.

One or the most dangerous commercial airports to land due to short runway terrain mountains and weather.

View from outside.

Cockpit view, listen to the pilots comment right at the end.

It landed at another airbase and was dragged into a hangar for repairs. Once back on it's wheels it was found it was too tall to get out of the hangar resulting in some lateral thinking...
