391 viewsAirline: Airbus IndustriesType: Airbus A-380Registration: F-WWDDAirport: OSHCity: OshkoshState: WisconsinCountry: USADate Taken: 2009The Big Boy doing a rather hard landing at Oshkosh. I heard it was trying to hit the numbers so they would be stopped in time to make the Aeroshell taxiway exit because the runway and taxiways would not have been wide enough to accomodate a safe turn around. There is a very prominent wing deflection in this shot.

391 viewsAirline: NEPTUNE AVIATIONType: P2V-5FRegistration: N96264Airport: LMTCity: KLAMATH FALLSState: OREGONCountry: USADate Taken: AUGUST 9, 2012Nothing like a clean starting R-3350 to give you an idea how inefficient the engine oil usage is on these large radial engines. The jet engine on each wing has a hydraulic driven inlet door that closes when not in use so the turbines do not windmill inflight causing bearing failure.
