    Link: Emergency Landing On A Street In A Glider - No to bad of a landing--could have been a lot worse, but it still looks a bit rough.

    An emergency landing in a glider equals a failure to plan.

    even though he crashed, what a badass for handling it that calmly.

    Don`t think it was a glider, his rate of descent and airspeed was pretty high.

    @onoffonoffon: Um...that tends to happen if you lose the thermals.

    Well *I`M* the most experienced aerospace engineer and crash investigator on this damn site and I say you`re ALL wrong, on the account that you have an opinion. Now STFU.

    "Don`t think it was a glider, his rate of descent and airspeed was pretty high."

    Think all you want. It was indeed a glider. Had it been a propelled plane, the wings would have been shorter, reventing it from hitting the mailbox on the other side of the street. You can also tell by how low the plan is to the ground when it landed. The landing gear of a glider is nothing more than a tire under the pilot (you only see the bottom half), a small wheel under the tail and a small wheel near each wing tip. None of them are retractable.

    What kind of an a$$hole flies a glider over a residential neighborhood. I think the "emergency" here was horribly poor judgement.

    That is one REALLY BAD glider pilot, who long ago before the video started should never have gotten himself into that situation.

    If you guys bother to read the uploader`s comments he accepts full responsibility for the incident.

    A landing by definition is a controlled crash; Any landing you can walk away from...

    Hopefully he was nice enough to offer to pick up the garbage as well, and get it back on the curb. You know, so that the people wouldn`t have to store it in their garage for the next weeks pick-up.
