Opposite lock in a Jet Fighter

I know 'we' all reckon we have car control down to a fine art.. able to master a 911 at all times/ weather and whatever might be thrown at us.....

Yes we do... you know it...

Now lets try that in a jet with a problem...

Excellent pics and interesting to watch the pilot and WSO's heads swivel around and watch the directions they are sliding in all of the photos.

Very good and lucky men on that ship...

It's easy to look like a hero when you have a Weissach axle.

m21....

Not 'man' enough for a 911? Ah you're missing the joys of making 911 shaped holes in hedges...

Stjin...

The two fairly heavy engines are slung out back... c of g is not that far in front of the main landing gear pivot point...

Not all that unexpected to get a 'tail sitter'....

Very lucky.
With two blown tires it probably was on the verge of flipping.
