Airbus A300 cargo hit by a missile after takeoff

What happens in this video ?

On November 22th, 2003, this Airbus A300-B4 freighter was impacted by a surface-to-air missile shortly after takeoff from the Baghdad International Airport (Irak). The left wing is damaged and all the three hydraulic circuits are lost. The crew eventually managed to land the plane by adjusting thrust on each engine. There is no serious injury among the 3 crew members.
The video has been captured by Iraqi troops. They claimed to have fired the missile that impacted the plane.

Mtricket is right, it is real and the only crew that has done it. They did get off the plane only for the emerg crew to tell them they were standing in a mine field. They drove the truck into the field and the crew walked in the tire tracks

True flight, not a fake at all. This was the first (and only i Believe) where the pilots lost hydraulics and managed to land the plane successfully. amazing job! poor guys also landed the plane off the runway, in a mine field & walked away!

Same with 232 heavy a DC 10 of United Airlines.I'm sure the families of the casualties would disagree

Funny how there is software that thakes over in these sort of cases.In lost hydrolics the only way to fly is by throttle.But the commercial block doesnt deem it warranted in their planes.Try telling this to the people on the jal 747 CONT>

i know that this is real because i saw it on t.v and it wasnt iraqi forces who fired the rocket it was iraqi terrorists

By increasing jet engine power aircraft pitched up, by decreasing nose pitchet down. Thrust changes of left and right engine allowed to turn left or right. Aircraft was steered relying only on the jet engines.

This video is real. Iraqui terrorists fired missiles at freight aircraft while being interviewed by French journalists. Missile hit wing all hydraulc systems were lost aircraft could not be steered anymore! Pilots could only use jet engines

I don't get it. I mean, the Iraqi army fired the rocket at the Iraqi plane or what? Was this some kind of experiment or what?
