What if you were planning to retire a Boeing 747SP and leave it on static display?
Easy. You'd get a pilot to fly it there and park the plane.
But what if the facility had a much smaller landing strip than 747s typically land upon?
Easy. You get a really good pilot to land it.
Watch that video. You'll see the pilot make a few low passes before ultimately landing on that little runway.
That's some impressive flying.
