This video of a Delta jet making a rather amazing landing has been making the rounds. I’ve seen it on Facebook, and three readers sent it to me.
The strength of the nose gear on the Boeing 787 is very impressive! But… this didn’t really happen.
- Delta has ordered 18 Boeing 787’s. None have yet been delivered.
- This sure looks like a computer-generated background. Microsoft Flight Simulator? A training simulator? Definitely not a video of an actual landing.
Don’t try this one for real, pilots!
