I've heard pilots say that landing is really a controlled crash. Comforting, huh?
Very comforting..why I hate flying unless I have no choice..reason #150
You must have been listening to carrier pilots——the ship’s moving and you have to snag a wire. And it seems like everyone in the world is shining blinking lights at you.——Landing on hard ground-—piece of cake. Just cut the power, pick your spot, and stick the plane on it.
