Nothing to do with Lazairs but a friend in the RAAF sent me these great shots of a gear up landing at the Amberley base in Queensland. On takeoff, one nosewheel departed from the aircraft. The pilot flew around for three hrs whilst they decided what to do. They laid out the arrestor cable sprayed the stip with foam. in the first shot he has just picked up the cable. the second the aircraft is slowing real fast and in the third it has just slammed in from about a mtr. they said they are going to repair it. The 21yr old pilot has 100 hrs total time and had just finished his conversion from PC9's. i don't think he was born when that F1111 was built http://mp3.news.com.au/bcm/f111.wmv here is a link for the video.

Cool pictures. The F-111 is kind of an obscure aircraft. It was supposed to be a bigger air force version of the F-14, but it was plagued with mechanical issues. At least here in the US, it's biggest claim to fame was that it was used when we bombed Muhmar Kadaffi.
