he took a calculated risk he said right we are too near the ground by the time the landing gear gets down it might not be locked in place we'll go for what we call a belly flop and that's basically what he did and he landed it beautifully and this is a bit like the if you remember the hudson river incident when the plane landed on the way the whole point is that he brought it down with the nose slightly out and so literally it sailed over the cornfield and that's quite a rip so that's helped the landing these pilots did brilliantly because they were really quite low when the bird strike took place and the engine tower dropped away almost completely so they had to look around for an open space in which to land and they didn't and as you can see they've done it brilliantly russia does have a history of having very good pilots that it's a profession that russians are very proud of having those who have it almost

a new mega juicy plot i've got a perfect one for you the life and death of convicted paedophile jeffrey epstein who was at the same time a friend of the likes of presidents clinton and trump or you case prince andrew just how many skeletons in his claws a did this man have his death as a real shocker and a staggering mystery some details of it though have been revealed to the public.
7:10 am
america baffled you really can't help asking questions. even though last month geoffrey epstein apparently already tried to kill him self a source within the law enforcement reported he was only put on suicide watch for less than a week plus it's been claimed epstein wasn't checked on every 30 minutes by guards and got deprived of his cellmate in violation of the prisons normal procedure there was also a rumor that surveillance cameras malfunctioned on that night when the death happened. only a day before the inmate was found unconscious
