Beautiful landing.

I've never had a bad landing, but only twice have had a landing that smooth where I was more aware of being on the ground rather than feeling it.

Maybe those were automated landings.


I wonder how much weight that woman can deadlift.






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I had thought that all flights to Antarctica were done by US Air National Guard crews flying special C-130s with skis, and always flew out of Christchurch NZ.

It was always the same unit/aircrews with special training on those specialized airframes.

I suspect these are one off missions done during good weather? Think couple months ago they landed an Airbus A340 there. May have even been other instances of large civilian airliners going there as well.

It looks like there are now commercial charter flights, one-offs, that leave Punta Arenas Chile. They have to use established snow landing strips at research stations.

Looks like they carry enough fuel for the round trip. I didn't notice any fuel trucks in the video. It's a good reason to use an "ER" type aircraft.
