Several hours (in Infinite Flight time) after our flight from Eareckson Air Station to Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, we continue our trip, crossing the poles once again to get to Copenhagen.
Mount Fuji is in the background as we climb out of Tokyo. Unknown to the passengers, we made a tailstrike during our rotation from Runway 34L at RJTT.
Welcome to Russia! Vladivostok is to the left of the camera.
This is one of many sights as we pass over Polar Russia. That is the northern coast of Novaya Zemlya.
After making several go-arounds, we are on final on Runway 22L at Kastrup.
It looks like we will experience a normal landing, but the pilot accidentally disengaged the autopilot, and now we are in a plunge towards the threshold of the runway.
We are able to level out just before we slam into the runway threshold.
Boom. We hit the ground at over 290 knots. The gears automatically cave in and the plane falls apart at our feet. The plane breaks into several pieces, spread evenly across the runway. Everybody survives with some sustaining minor injuries due to the impact.
What will happen next? We will just have to find out…
