Giant scale MD-11 airliner. Good flight but bad landing

    A very nice flight of this MD-11 nearly ended in disaster with the less than graceful landing. Failure to flare resulted in the nose wheel touching down just before the mains and pitching the aircraft up into an unrecoverable stall.

    This McDonnell Douglas MD-11 Martinair Cargo has 1 turbine engine. It is 3.23 metres wingspan and is 3.80 metres in length. Scale of the model is 1/16.

  2. A couple of Full-Scale MD11's/DC10's have been involved in remarkably similar landings. Sadly, with less agreeable outcomes.
