Hitting the center line!

Recommended Posts

Just thought y'all might enjoy.Robert JOK all you pros get an eye full of this!! Who needs a 150' or 200' wide strip? Actual shots are from a fairly impressive landing operation. One of SAA's first B-747s retiring to Rand Airport, South Africa (elevation 5568 feet with 4898 long x 50 feet wide runway!) The 747-100 outer-to-outer main gear tire width is 41.33 ft. Empty aircraft Vref was 115 kts! Right on the center line. An inch is as good as a mile. Nice work.

Superb flying. Thanks for posting those pics, Robert.Amazing that such a large a/c can still fly at 115Kts. A testament to Boeing`s aerodynamicists. Cheers Lungs
