Brilliant emergency landing

Really awesome - textbook stuff - hardly any damage to the aircraft.

great, you can just see the prop being cranked around not to shock load the n/s engine, superb landing

Watched it earlier - nice nose up - port engine off as he went over the hedge. Looked like std endine was windmilling - but if no power through it then no shock loading. You can see the nose gear flopping around so he knew what was coming. Impressive he stopped on the numbers !

Surprised no fire crews pulled up in the time he was sat there - but they coudl well have been out of shot.
