That did not go as planned. Air show practice in Mexico! The sound tells the story! Thankfully everyone got out alive!

Incredible footage of @jolly_pilot performing a very difficult "Brownout" landing!

The brownout... Which is of course a reference to a restricted visibility approach into dust and not the potential physiological incident that can occur when you get it wrong. The last 50' or so is flown inside the cockpit on HDD symbology, essentially making it an instrument approach to the ground. The goal is a firm touch down with minimal ground roll to prevent stalling out in the cloud. This footage is from a few years back in Africa and the dust clouds were incredible. For a frame of reference on the sheer scale of the cloud, the cover ship is several hundred feet in the air. The takeoff half way through was iffy at best without OGE power, arresting the ascent halfway up and causing us to punch out without clearing the cloud... Quite a bit of iron has been bent getting it wrong going into or out of a brownout with no power margin and yes, it's also bad for the engines and your eyes. #brownout #dustoff #donttakemeback #hotasf #airforce #combat #rescue #helicopter #usaf #aviation #newyork #airguard #pararescue #africa #desert #destination #gopro #avgeek #instagramaviation #lovemyjob #verticalmag

"A-10 pilot manages to 'belly land' his plane after gun malfunctions, canopy blows off, and landing gear fails" •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
(Capt. Brett DeVries, an A-10 Thunderbolt II pilot of the 107th Fighter Squadron from Selfridge Air National Guard Base, poses next to the aircraft he safely landed after a malfunction forced him to make an emergency landing July 20 at the Alpena Combat Readiness Training Center.Photo courtesy US Air National Guard)
After a routine training run in Alpena County, Michigan in late July, US Air National Guard Capt. Brett DeVries survived the perfect storm of malfunctions to safely land his A-10 Thunderbolt II on its belly without the benefit of landing gear.
During a training exercise where A-10 pilots practice dropping inert bombs and ripping the planes' massive gun, DeVries' gun malfunctioned. Moments later, his canopy blew off his plane as he flew along at 375 miles an hour, according to a US Air National Guard write up of the event.
The incredible winds smacked DeVries head against his seat, nearly incapacitating him. "It was like someone sucker punched me," he said. "I was just dazed for a moment." DeVries wingman, Major Shannon Vickers, then flew under his plane to assess the damage, finding bad news. The panels under his plane had been damaged, and it was unclear if he would be able to lower his landing gear.
Meanwhile, DeVries struggled against the wind and having everything loose in his cockpit. He could no longer benefit from checklists, which had become a liability that could now potentially fly out and get stuck in his engine.
DeVries, having the flight from hell, had two of his radios go down and had to communicate with Vickers and flight control on his third backup system. They worked together to find him a nearby spot to land and Vickers observed that DeVries would not in fact be able to use his landing gear.
