A Douglas C-54 Skymaster practices a "Tempelhof Landing" at Great Falls Air Force Base, Mont. Student pilots are taught this special type of landing to simulate flight conditions at Tempelhof AB, Berlin. The approach glide angle is very steep and the airplanes touch down with a high-nose altitude and are held nose-high until engines slow down. This causes the wing to act as an airbrake and use of the wheel brakes is cut to a minimum. (U.S. Air Force photo)
