Those People Are Standing Too Close! Shuttle Enterprise Bouncing During Landing in 1977!
One of the most advanced aircraft on the planet, um well and beyond it to be exact, is the NASA Space Shuttle and in order for it to perform perfectly it has to endure a vast number of tests and trials.
They say that one of the hardest things about piloting it, is landing it, since this thing does not have the best aero properties to be honest, so much so, that the NASA people have dubbed it the flying brick.
This is why they had to perform all those tests and trials in order to perfect the landing of the aircraft that just doesn’t like flying, and in one of those attempts they had a somewhat of a bouncy ride.
What you have to love about the 70’s is the fact that while the pilots are performing these dangerous maneuvers, the bystanders are allowed to stand meters from the runway and enjoy the show, not really caring that this thing can wipe them out in a matter of seconds if anything goes wrong.
