    Default German plane landing attempt

    I just heard about this on the radio. If you're going to fly somewhere soon, you may want to pass on viewing it.

    Since we are talking planes, if you ever have the opportunity to go to St. Martin you'll want to go to this beach and watch the planes coming in. I sat on this beach for nearly 2 days just watching the jets coming in. It is an awsome sight.

    This video is shot by someone else but it gives you an idea.

    I did one just like that on Sunday, but my wing didn't hit the runway (only because a C150 has a high wing). The instructor took the controls after the second bounce and brought us down safely.

    Still trying to get signed off on cross-wind landings so I can solo - but I did get spins signed off.

    Had a similar experience one day. Winds were 3 gusting to 5 from 270, CAVU, perfect. Departing on 36 ( with the interstate 50 yds from the end of the runway ) got 100' off the runway when a strong gust caused the left wing to drop 60 degrees. Don't know who was more shocked, me or the people on the interstate. That was 20 years ago ( 5 hrs after getting my license ), a lot of holes poked in the clouds since then, but something you don't forget.

    David,

    Congratulations on the flying lessons.

    When that happened to me in a Cessna 152, that was when I switched to a 172.

    Just enough more weight in the plane to handle those wind gusts during landing and take of (but especially during landing with power off and about ready to touch down).

    I think you will like the 172 much better.

    Have to agree with Jerry on the 172 since it is heavier and is a good sight seeing plane. But if you want a smoother ride you should try a Piper Archer
    or Arrow. With the higher wing loading they are less suseptible to minor turbulance. Plus, you can achieve a steep rate of decent if you need / want to. Only drawback is you lose a little visibility downward to the side.
