Hello Warriors,

I very rarely post anything about flying things but I found this pretty cool, at the Sibson airfield in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire a pilot hit a perfect landing without wheels in a Spitfire replica:

The pilot radioed the airfield reporting that he could not release his landing gear and asked if he could make an emergency landing on a grassy area, after burning off fuel for 20 minutes.
He landed by putting the tail end down first to absorb some impact and then the rest (or the “belly”) of the plane making a full stop.

The pilot got out unharmed and the Spitfire Replica apart from a broken propeller was largely undamaged.

I can only imagine him walking off like a boss…
