Take off, Roll & Land - on same runway

#1 Post by Hedley » Mon Nov 01, 2010 7:39 am

Airshow crowds are pretty jaded. Most of you have probably seen someone take off, roll then land full stop again on a runway.

Ever seen anyone do it in an F-104, with it's extraordinarily high wing loading?

I think he may have exceeded 60 degrees of bank!

Always amazes me that that overgrown lawndart managed to fly. I guess the saying is correct.... if you strap enough thrust to anything you'll make it fly! :lol:
