Nasty turbulent landing shows what a jet can take (video)

Today is a holiday. And as I rarely take one, I’m taking this one. We’ll be posting, but it will be our usual holiday fare, unless something huge happens.

So in the meantime, enjoy this video of a 767 landing in some nasty windy weather. While it’s somewhat scary to watch the plane bump around, and land on one wheel, it also shows how much these planes can really take.

I remember an engineer friend telling me that jets can fly upside down.  I’m not sure if that’s true, and would rather not find out.
