Ladies and Gentlemen, please stay seated as Captain Kangaroo bounces the plane back to the terminal.
For those of us who have ballooned a plane with a little too much airspeed, the last thing you want is a forced landing. That’s why flaring was invented. Surely the pilot would have gone around by the twelfth bounce… but no. Time for a new prop, engine tear down and nose gear.
It wasn’t the plane’s fault, it wasn’t the pilot’s fault, it was… the asphalt.
