Toncontin International, Tegucigalpa, Honduras.

One or the most dangerous commercial airports to land due to short runway terrain mountains and weather.
Same airport: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJoXMcehrYo
Good vid, not seen that one before, should have done a go-around.
Pilot seemed to be get to the touchdown zone, but ground effect & way to much speed kept him floating way to long.

I wonder who first tried that?

Some more interesting footage I watched today, Me262s built from original plans flying in the US.

Alright, I'm biased as I make a few cameo appearances....and I wasn't even flying the Master's sequence:

Put together by the 747 driver you see going backwards up the sky in the One Design at the start, for me that Duxford weekend ranks as one of the very best. The 'Big Vic' recovery to Waltham was something I will never forget.

Not sure if this fits in with the thread, but I found it interesting.

Just a plane taking off then immediately crashing? It's all in German? So I don't know the story behind it, but I'm sure someone on here does.

Didn't think to look on the 2nd page.

So it's fake?

Balls! It seemed a bit unbelievable, but it looks fairly real.

Ahh, I skim read it and it all looked foreign to me.

I thought you meant read the comments on the 2nd page saying it was fake.

A quick search found this:-

The aircraft involved was an experimental, modified version of the Caribou which had undergone conversion to turbine power, and was being tested to check fuel and hydraulic systems on the date of the crash, 27 August 1992. Although the aircraft apparently rotates and climbs normally, photographic evidence indicates that control-surface movement was minimal, suggesting that the gust-locks were engaged. While there was elevator movement upon rotation, the elevators returned to the neutral position and remained there. This is in line with the operation of the gust-lock – if the control surfaces are not in the neutral position when the lock is engaged, movement of the surfaces through neutral will engage it. In addition to preventing control-surface movement, the gust-lock lever is supposed to inhibit the power levers to prevent the pilot from applying take-off power. It was found that the aircraft's take-off distance was 20% longer than expected. Wreckage analysis determined that the rudder lock was fully engaged and the aileron lock had only been disengaged at the moment of impact, supporting the conclusion that the gust-lock system had not been fully disengaged ahead of the flight, and that at least some of the locks had engaged after take-off.
