If God had wanted the army to fly, he would have made the sky brown.
If God meant man to fly, He'd have given us bigger wallets.
If God had meant for men to fly he would have made their bones hollow and not their heads.

Great video from a great channel, but even better when it comes to those last few seconds before landing. Handling the crosswind like a boss! Those control inputs though...

This picture kick me to study hard and achieve my goal!

The A380 is ahead of its time. With the resilient passenger traffic growth for times to come (reference from Airbus's Global Market Forecast), plus congested airports, the A380 could not be ignored.

Pushback/pull forward, engine start, taxi and takeoff of a Cavok AN-12 at ZRH. Pretty cool sounds coming from this four-engined turboprop, especially during engine start.

Missed the taxiway? No problem, we'll just put the engines into reverse. Who needs a turnaround pad? :P


All joking aside, that's not the wisest decision these pilots made.

I guess almost no airport is immune to wildlife... A few months ago an American Eagle CR9 hit a deer! Glad to see there was no contact between anything in this instance.
