And Now For Something Completely Different

Wicked Thoughts on aircraft landings:

After a real crusher of a landing in Sydney, the flight attendant came on with, "Ladies and gentlemen, please remain in your seats until Capt.Crash and the crew have brought the aircraft to a screeching halt against the gate. And, once the tire smoke has cleared and the warning bells are silenced, we'll open the door and you can pick your way through the wreckage to the terminal."

I've made some rather hard landings while taking flying lessons. In one case actually taking some very visible chunks out of the tires. ("Oh, you guys better replace those tires...")

We now return you to our regularly scheduled reality.
