    Amazing video - but that appears to be an L-1011. Similar looking aircraft.

    I"m standing beside myself over the difficulty with our landing. Please enjoy your visit and remember, 'Eurowings, we get you there and you aren't dead.'

    That landing gear is crazy sturdy.

    I bet the pilot didn't even spill his beer.

    I was watching the wheels as he rolled back onto the tarmac thinking it looked fake. Then I saw the comments saying it's a simulator - I'd have to agree.

    I’ve played around with sims that would bounce like that.
    I don’t think it would survive a real landing that hard.
    I may be wrong, perhaps it would bounce like that and survive, if so it would have to be one tough bird.

    No nose gear would survive that kind of impact. Definitely a simulator.

    Yeah, that can’t be real. No fuselage buckling. No cowling falling off let alone flying open. The engines are staying on and not even shaking. No ruts behind the wheels in the grass....

    Too bad skynyrd wasn't in one of those. We'd have gotten several more albums!

    I was at Millington Naval Air Base for the Blue Angels show back in the 90's and a former Top Gun pilot working for Fed Ex did a wild demo in a DC10 that made a lot of jaws drop.

    I remember a few DC10s that weren't so tough, and neither was their "cargo".
