Not sure if this should go in featured section but anyway…
The Boeing 747 already has (or had) a landing mission but there could be more potential for these. Here are some hypothetical missions:
- Fly a Cessna 208 freighter to a small city in Hawaii carrying supplies because the island is isolated because of a natural disaster
- Boeing 767 has lost an engine and you need to land at the nearest airport that can handle the jet (Which just happens to be 90 nm. away)
- Descend from cruising altitude, 39,000 ft., because your Boeing 757 has a medical emergency that must get to the hospital soon. You must descend at max 5,000 ft./min. so the sick person feel sicker. Timed mission.
That’s some starter ideas.
Long live the DC-9!
