Thats the proof: a skilled pilot can land safely without landing gear. Excellent job! :drinks:

they lifted the plane, mechanically extended the landing gear to tow it away from runway

Me I am just glad that when I fly the airplane takes off and lands okay... normally with all its parts though some may have moved around in flight. Like the time I went to Washington DC and my luggage went to Jamaica...

Things lik this are the reason pilots have to do such a lot of training... Now one sees the usefullnes of a pilots license with a lot of flying hours, simulator hours, practice landings etc A job very well done !!:good:

Training and experience are both necessary, because there's no way to cover it all in training, and there's little chance you'll remember everything years later if you've not used it. I can't even begin to list the things I've forgotten about physics I knew just 15 years ago!

LOL, I remember those concepts. I'm talking about solving partial differential equations, matrices, etc.
