Workshop Note
Landing P-51D...nhaaa landing? More a less controlled crash. Anyway, while I was on the phone, keeping the mobile in my left hand, I tried to make some shots of landing P-51 Mustangs after the final fly pass. I noticed the landing of this P-51 wasn't going as planned. The aircraft bounced of the grass pitch up violently, came bqack to earth on his left landing gear strut (for our English friends: undercarriage) and pitched up again and showed the strut and left wheel were different from the original design. When is came back to earth for the third time he pitched down with his propeller almost hitting the ground and tipping over(at least he enjoyed three landings for the price of one) the Mustang made a sharp turn to the left and came to a rest ad the edge of the runway...the pilot stept out of his cockpit unharmed. While this happend I gave my colleagues on the phone a life report of what happened in front of my eyes.
