RD Hard Landing by LateCustomer RD Hard Landing by LateCustomer
Even the best flyer in Equestria is bound to have an accident now and then. <wince> I'm sure she'll be fine.


I wanted to see if I could capture the energy, motion, and impact of a rough landing without relying on speed lines or the like as I would in my normal cartooning efforts. Instead I focused on direction of debris and some perspective tricks to make RD look like she's sliding to a halt just short of hitting the camera. Aaaand... I now feel sorry for doing this to poor Rainbow Dash.

In the various Air Forces around the world, a "colonel's landing" is a slang expression to describe a clumsy landing made by a person who, despite being a qualified, certified, and trained pilot, has occupied a command/desk position for a long time, thus dulling his/her experience and reflexes as a pilot and decreasing his/her quality as a pilot (but not necessarily as a commander, though).

A colonel's landing, even if clumsy and, maybe, resulting in damages to the aircraft or nearby structures, doesn't necessarily turns into a crash. But that's a possibility, though.


P.S.:
I assumed you knew what a colonel's landing is, but I posted it anyway. Not everyone/everypony is supposed to know about it.
And, I confess, I've been wanting to go on a Twilight Sparkle-like short lecture for a long time.
I hope you'll forgive me.:icontwilightawkwardplz:
