F-16 Dead Stick Landing - Elizabeth City, NC

This video isn't new, but it makes my heart race every time I watch it.  Great teamwork and great airmanship.  Oh yeah, also a lot of luck.  This is the HUD video and recorded audio of a USAF F-16 making an emergency dead stick landing.  You hear it all and, if you are like me, you live it.

Here is a great book describing the selection and training of F-16 pilots.  It's a great guide and an inspiration!  For that low price, it's a great gift for a young person and a bargain for you!
