You got me interested to know too so I googled. It is a photoshop picture of a real incident.

Yea..I was wondering that myself. When I first saw it, I thought it was too unbelievable that a plane that big could just gently fall onto he bridge and have almost no damage. In any case the shadows just didn't look right, like the bridge frame casting shadows onto the wing??

I remember seeing an Air Crash Investigation of that flight some time back.

The bit about using the jet wash of the plane in front to melt their own ice prior to take off jogged the memory.

That's a light load Frank. You should take a look at their trains.

No goats, no chickens, no mother-in laws.

Should get off the deck in no time.

Only put a 'funny' on it because no serious injuries (apart from a huge dent in pride). English is a great language for the humorist - most words have multiple meanings depending on context.

That guy will never live that down.

Agree with David, very fortunate no one was seriously injured or killed.

What's that old joke about Yanos the Greek...

 

"I build all these houses, no one call me Yanos the builder.

I built those fishing boats, no one call me Yanos the shipwright.

I planted that olive grove, no one call me Yanos the farmer.

 

But I f*ck ONE goat....!"

I want to know if he flew an interception and landed between the struts (bloody good flying if that's the case!) - or if the lazy bugger was there from takeoff?

Obviously not a Stol pigeon. I have never seen a bird perched at 90 degrees to a strong wind. Photo shopped?
