TU-154 RA-85563 Almost Crash! (subtitles)
29 april 2011 at Chkalovsky Airport (military airport base 31 km northeast
of Moscow) TU-154 RA-85563 experienced serious trouble right after
take-off. The automatic control system (АБСУ) broke down wich caused
the pilots to steer the plane using only engines. The plane was made in
1982 and since 2005 never flew. The pilots were ordered to fly the aircraft
to Samara for repairs. Luckily the captain Radionov is a very experienced
pilot. If not for his skills the plane would definitely crash. The
Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Air Force Alexander Zelin will award the
pilots for their actions. The plane in result got no damage.

Spectacular Lockheed Super Constellation visual Approach - Paris Air Show 2013 ( HD )
The Lockheed Super Constellation was built between 1943 and 1958. 856
aircrafts were produced during these 15 years. I have tried to catch the
Super Constellation with the well known nick name "Super Conni" since many
years but it was never flying to an airport near my home airport. This time
we decided to drive 500 km (320 miles) to Paris with one goal: Getting a
good video and a good picture of this old lady. I am very content with the
result because this visual approach was very impressive in my opinion.
Thanks to " Breitling Super Constellation" for keeping this beauty in the
air. Last year they had to cancel all flights due to technical problems.
Thanks for watching, I hope you like and please don` t forget to rate.

DC-3 Short field landing
This is the proper way to land a DC-3 on a short strip. Nose down to kill
all lift and get maximum pressure on the landing gear, apply full brakes,
let the tail down gently when the speed drops and you end up with a ground
roll of 300 meters. This day there was a five knot crosswind from the left
so the wind didn't help much to lower the landing speed.
