Air Force awards A-10 pilot for skillfully belly-landing plane without landing gear after 'catastrophic' failure

The Next Captain Marvel?

The US Air Force awarded a fighter pilot for skillfully landing a damaged aircraft without a cockpit canopy or working landing gear after what the service described as a "catastrophic" failure.

Capt. Taylor Bye, a 75th Fighter Squadron pilot, pulled off an emergency belly landing in her A-10C Thunderbolt II fighter jet in April 2020 after an unexplained gun malfunction over Grand Bay Range at Moody Air Force Base in Georgia sent panels and her cockpit canopy flying and prevented her landing gear from deploying.

That's crazy landing. As good as the recent surf landing by the WW2 plane?

Better. She made it back to a runway, missing a canopy and some instruments.
