There are two options for the pilot here – to gear up or perform a belly landing. Guess which one he chose?
You know, pilots have an amazing job – one of the best in the world, no doubt. They get to experience amazing views and also benefit from several work perks. But on the downside, it’s just as tough and challenging. Every experienced pilot knows how much risk he takes each time he flies but that’s already a given. The thing is, aside from acquiring all the knowledge and skills necessary, they also need to have quick thinking.
So what about crash landing?
“Such a landing does carry a small risk – there is likely to be extensive damage to the aircraft; it could conceivably catch fire or flip over if it lands too hard.” – Telegraph’s Oliver Smith
It might sound dangerous and scary but as long as it’s done the right way, it’s safe.
