    How do you get a passenger jet into the jungle leaving it intact?


    What's the location? Country?

    Its just a plane flying over the jungle, not on the ground... Nothing more.

    Think about it... how on God's green earth would you land a jet of that size in the middle of the jungle? Completely intact?! If it was crashed, it would be a long scar of brown and burned area.

    They already found wreckage floating near Madagascar, or some place.

    That plane's not lost. They know exactly where it is.
    Every airline has satellite tracking of all their planes.

    Think about it.
    Wouldn't you want to know where your multi-million dollar investment was at all times?

    They just don't want you to know how it got where it is.

    Tech sleuth needs to get out of the basement more.

    I highly doubt a plane landing in a jungle would remain intact.

    I always wondered if a pilot could do a near-zero-forward-motion belly-flop stall/crash in a large jet aircraft (what it would take to get the result seen above, IF it were a crashed plane), or if you'd lose too much lift and crash well before reaching zero forward speed...

    Maybe only in something like an empty cargo plane, that has a high lift-to-weight ratio?
    Maybe only over water, where you could use ground-effect to your advantage?

    The stall speed on a Boeing 777 is more than 100 knots, so it would fall out of the air at that speed (+/-). That's 115 mph. In theory, its forward movement could be zero relative to the ground in a 115 mph headwind.

    I'm making those numbers up, because I could not find the stall speed of a 777. But the target landing speed is 137 knots. So the stall speed is something less than 137.

    So you're saying, probably only in a typhoon/hurricane?

    Noted. :supergrin:

    Is that in cruise configuration, or full-flaps landing set-up?
