I've seen this before

And I don't wish to try it. That said I know from personal experience that I can (well could) land a C-130 in less than 1000 feet. It's pretty violent! You are landing with 2 of the engines already in reverse and the other 2 pulling forward against the 2 in reverse. Then with full brakes and full reverse a tremendous stopping force is used. You should see the wings deflect when you hit the deck!!

Too much junk/toys to mention, ever changing due to too getting bored too quickly. I need a 10 step program!
Want to call? I'm in the book. Want to argue....First explain the square root of negative one....lol
