Not sure if this has been posted before - it happened a year ago. I’m sorry if it’s a repost - just found this pic posted on a.net and I don’t remember it being discussed. If this was pilot error, how could it happen with this many people watching?? Wonder if this was part of the show?

The Military forum there says it was a problem with the gear that forced the belly landing.

and according to the comments, the aircraft has been repaired.

I hate to see stuff like that happening to older planes… :frowning:
