Zero Visibility Landing

Oct 16, 2015 By John-Michael Bond

What goes up must come down, especially if what goes up is an airplane. While there are weather situations that cause airplanes to delay landing for safety reasons thanks to modern automated landing some planes are still able to land even when facing blinding fog. What you see in this video is a Cat III automated landing. At first you might not think you’re watching anything at all but just wait. Within a few seconds the runway appears, suddenly materializing through the dense fog. It’s the sort of landing you might see in an action movie, but no one you’d want a person trying to pull off in real life. Thank you automated landing for making flying the foggy skies just a little less scary.
