That Time When A FJ-4B Fury Did A Belly Landing
North American FJ-4 Fury is a swept-wing fighter-bomber aircraft that is also carrier-capable. FJ-4 Fury flew for the first time in October 1954 and served the United States Navy and the United States Marine Corps. The aircraft shown in this video the FJ-4B Fury is the attack version and it was the first jet designed to carry a nuclear weapon off a carrier.
This incident took place in November 2008 when aircraft were practicing for a United States Navy Blue Angels homecoming air show in Pensacola, Florida.
As shown in the video, right after the F/A-18F Super Hornet makes a high-speed pass, the FJ-4B Fury lands. Not the usual kind of landing you see every day.
Unfortunately, the Fury ran into some kind of landing gear problem and was forced to make a belly landing on Naval Air Station Pensacola runway. Luckily the pilot could escape the aircraft unhurt after such a dangerous landing.
According to the uploader of this video to YouTube, the show did resume after about a 45-minute break. Subscribe to ZINGER AVIATION MEDIA for more aviation content. From the video below, you can see how the pilot did an amazing job in belly-landing the aircraft.
