Video: Sumptuous 747 Landing In 120fps Slow Mo - Wow!

 I'm a freak for great video, and for great airplanes... guess you could say that makes me a 'super freak' for great video of great airplanes! That's exactly what youtuber GatwickSpotting has here. Shot from over 4 miles away, this slow mo 747 landing is a real treat to watch.

 It's so interesting to me to see how much shaking goes on with the flaps, the horizontal tail and other stuff you usually don't think is supposed to move around like that! I also like seeing the reflection of the runway lights in the bottom of the fuselage. It's really a fabulous 1:28. I highly recommend you go check out the GatwickSpotting youtube channel - lots of cool stuff over there with a really unique perspective. Great job!

My favorite 747 landing scene is the one near the beginning of the Bond movie "Live and Let Die" which has a very close-up shot of the gear hitting the runway with the theme song by Paul McCartney blaring away.
