Giant B-17 crash landing

Handled like a full size pilot. Nice skills in a potentially disastrous situation.

Not a crash landing but a landing without both main wheels.

Thought so.....that B-17 and the one his dad Dave Johnson flies are from the mold used to make the B-17's for the movie Memphis Belle

That wasn't a crash, it was a scale landing. Back in the day a lot of B17s landed in the UK without one of the main wheels down.

I don’t think it could have been done any better than that! The take offs were interesting, across the grass and then across the runway like that? Must have been a strong crosswind?

my fiancée's father was a radio man in lancasters...unfortunately he passed before we could meet. One of the reasons that she supports my hobby so much is out of respect for her father and his passion for aviation.

Outstanding done!!!
Did you note the slow motion how he landed with 2 engines shut off, one on each side then killed the inboard where the wheel is stuck an finally the outboard starboard just before the wing hits the ground!
