Plane makes dramatic belly landing
New video shows a Boeing 767 landing on its belly after its landing gear failed to open.

Is this the Skill of the pilot or the planes are built to take such friction ...

Re: Plane lands on belly in Poland, none hurt

I'll wager it's both. If you put the airplane down politely, it can take it, as demonstrated in the multiple landings like this over the years.

But it probably takes a good pilot to put it down gently enough.

Re: Plane lands on belly in Poland, none hurt

1/15/2009 an Airbus 320 made an emergency landing on the Hudson river having engine failure due to hitting a flock of Canada geese six minutes after takeoff. The incident happened with a few injuries but no deaths. It was known as the 'Miracle on the Hudson'. The pilot was an ex-US fighter pilot.

It was noted that the plane's fuselage had some severe water impact damage and interestingly was put up for auction.

Both pilot skill and 'safety-factor' design make such landings possible.

Salute to the pilot of the landing in Warsaw. :applause:
