In this post, we see the Unlimited Sea Fury Dreadnaught suffering from engine failure in a qualifying session.

Fortunately, the plane landed safely on the ground with the pilot safe.

Hands down to the pilot for executing a masterful landing of a catastrophic engine failure. He definitely got his bearings right, made a perfect dead-stick landing, and immediately shut it down to preserve the plane engine.

He made it look like he does it every day – what a fine display of airmanship in adversity!

The cameraman also did an excellent job following the plane through to the final touchdown.
