Hey guys, found this link to some crash video download.

Check out the Chinook helicopter crashing while trying to land on a carrier. I hope the crews were okay :( .

And also the UFO crash! Not really a Man In Black person. But the video is kinda cool. 8)

enjoy,
Desmond

The video of the "747 almost crash at landing" is not a possible crash.

They have to land like that because there are buildings in the way. I can't rememeber where it is, but I think it is somewhere in Japan.

It is out on the net somewhere...

Kai Tak in Hong Kong, China - the infamous "billboard" approach. IIRC the airport is now closed.

err, checkerboard approach - (commercial airliner) takeoffs on runway 31 are not possible due to the large mountain at the end of the runway. The only approach is for runway 13 - you fly directly at a pair of large checkerboard signs on the side of the mountain and, at the last minute, execute a hard right turn to line up on 13 - flying right over the city buildings. Many of the (in)famous photos and videos are either misalignments and/or crosswind landings.
