who can identify the 'tubrocharged sedan'? looks like an older car.

Default Amazing effort!

An unbeleivable effort by the driver of the car and the man on top of the car to pull the landing gear of the aeroplane down! Kudos to all involved including the video camera operator. Looks like the pilot ran out of runway to make a landing on the same run. Luckily he has had enough fuel to come around. Reminds me of another old video where the pilot of a small plane effectively completed the stunt of landing on the back of a moving truck!

"What happens in this video ?The right main landing gear of this Piper PA-28R arrow is stuck, and won’t come down. The plane has to land and is running low on fuel. A dangerous but innovative solution is finally found."

Nice video, the car looks like an old Saab 9000 or something, the quality of the video is too low. Also would explain the Turbocharged part.

P.S. Could be an Audi too.
