Textbook. Whoever taught this fellow should be recognized as well. That was a great piece of flying skill.
A no flap landing? I'd want to slow as much as possible! On further examination on my iPad, it seems that the port side main gear doors are not open fully. One assumes that the pilot tried cycling the gear. On the other hand, successfully landing with nose gear only minimized the damage to a very great extent! Well done!
Better than when I landed gear up in a fixed gear aircraft! (Oops side down)!!!
Kind of reminds me of a U-2/TR-1 landing,
considering that the pilot only had nose gear down this was a very smooth landing until the left wing dropped when the plane stopped
How much structural damage is done after this landing? The plane looks like it was in remarkable shape after the landing. I noted the prop was spared too.
I believe the article said a forklift lifted every thing up, gear was cycled and it taxied to terminal under it's own power. Apparently there was a student and instructor. I am assuming that was the instructor that got out last and took a bow. LOL
i believe that only the skin where the rear landing gear would be and the tip of the left wing were the only parts damaged in the belly landing
