Crippled airbus landing at LAX

Check out your national cable news channel. There is an airbus which twisted its font gear on takeoff. They are expecting to land it at LAX. Iíve seen this before with an F4 at McDill. That was a beautiful landing. Brought it in holding the nose up until he almost came to a stop. He almost didnít scrape the paint on the bottom of the nose. I was sitting on the edge of the runway at the time. In his case, the nose gear wouldnít come down, which is better than it being down and twisted.

I donít think somebody in a Jeep is gonna beat on this one with a stick.
