Submitted by: piperfawn 4 years ago

No to bad of a landing--could have been a lot worse, but it still looks a bit rough.

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.

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

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

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

"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.

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.

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

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