Talking OT: Ahhhhh.......the Irish.......

Air Lingus Flight 101 Heathrow to Dublin. As they approached Dublin No. 1 Runway, the tower heard:

PILOT - Bjeesus will ya look how fookin shart dat runway is?

CO-PILOT - Yer nat fookin kiddin Paddy

PILOT - Dis is ganna be one a de trickiest landings ever Shamus !

CO-PILOT - Yer nat fookin kiddin Paddy !!

PILOT - Right Shamus when I say go put de engine in reverse !!

CO-PILOT - Royt ill do dat !!

PILOT - an den ya put de flaps down !!

CO-PILOT - Royt ill do dat to !!

PILOT - An den stamp an der brakes as hard as yer can an pray ta de holy mudder a gad !!!

CO-PILOT - Im prayin already but ill hit de brakes as hard as I can


So as the wheels hit the ground Shamus put the engines in reverse, put the flaps down, stamped on the brakes and continued to pray to the holy mother with all his soul.

The breaks screeched, the tires squealed and there was smoke everywhere !! But to the relief of all the passengers and not least of all Paddy and Shamus the aircraft came to a stop but a few meters from the end of the runway !!!

As Paddy and Shamus sat in the cockpit regaining some composure Paddy looked out of the window and said to Shamus "Dat has gat ta be de shartist fookin runway in de world"

To which Shamus replied "Yes but da ya see how wide it is?

Baja,
Did you see the other pics where that same plane smacked the outer port side engine into the ground? Pilot claimed the landing was "normal"(????).
