Gripping Video . . . Lucky People!

Here's a video that you can't take your eyes off. These are some very lucky people. There is a boat in one of the sequences.

A few of the aircraft ones seem like normal procedures to me. But the others will amaze you.

That video is hilarious. I love the motorcycle vs. car ones where the guys act like nothing's happened, and are basically just bummed about their bikes being thrashed.

Thanks for the videos. I enjoyed them.

They reinforced my belief that it's never over until it's completely over. When you face an apparent disaster, it's definitely not the time to surrender. You may yet snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

That one with the Korean 747 landing at a 45 degree angle to the runway is at the old Kai Tak airport in Hong Kong. The approach there is unreal. They finally decided to build an new airport before someone screwed up and dumped a jet into the city. That other one, the KLM 747 is at St. Maartens in the islands. You used to be able to swim off the end of the runway but they decided to block it off for safety. Wheres the fun in that?

It just goes to show that crossing the street is more dangerous than sailing.
