The McDonnell Douglas KDC-10

Today at work I recorded this video where a McDonnell Douglas KDC-10 from our national air-force lands at Eindhoven Airport. This is a bad ass plane!! They had a training day and did several “fake” landings. After the wheels touched the ground it would hit the throttle and immediately fly up again. This is to save fuel because an actual landing and another take-off again would cost a lót more fuel, and time. So I guess this proves that our defense department does actually put some effort in to thinking about how to use our hard earned tax payer’s money in the most efficient way. So we’ve got that going for us, which is nice.
