How fast would the truck have to be going?

I see this old video is making the rounds again.


Fake, of course. It was part of an ad campaign back in 2011.

But it is amusing. And I got to thinking about how fast the truck would have to go to actually do that. Any pilots around here?

I figure that’s a 727-200, and it was supposed to have had a fairly full cabin. I’ll make a non-pilot’s SWAG that it would be landing at around 130 knots. So the truck would have to be doing about 150 MPH.

Yeah, I’d like to have a truck that could do that.

If you found this post useful, please consider dropping something in my tip jar. I could really use the money, what with ISP bills, rabbit feed, and general life expenses.Click here to donate via PayPal.
