RAAF 111 Successful Belly Landing

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

That's a flier - not just a pilot.  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

"The potential for things to go wrong was reasonably high." Totally deadpan. If that man is not a test pilot within 5 years, I'll buy everyone here a meal*

Anyone who tells you you can't buy happiness has never been in a book store or an animal shelter.

You are the result of 3 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.

That was an extremely well executed, low level, in-flight arrestment in the short field gear.  That approach and landing took one hell of a lot of finesse...

That's not just a flier, that's an AUS flier; that's characteristic AUS deadpan.
