A LOT to move! Photos from Warsaw. (updated)

The LOT Polish airlines B767 that “crash” landed in Warsaw yesterday, skid down the runway on its belly, coming to a stop at the intersection of both the runways in Warsaw closing the airport for more than 24 hours.

UPDATE

- Warsaw airport is now open.

- I had a polish friend provide a translation of ATC:
[Ground]: tower, LOT16?
[LO16]: LOT16
[Ground]: LOT16, ground wind 104knots, for your information on the short straight we will turn off RWY lights
[LO16]: Thank you.
[Ground]: LOT16, RWY in sight?
[LO16]: Yes, we have RWY in sight
[Ground]: Good luck.

Pilot Tadeusz Wrona, right, and his co-pilot Jerzy Szwarc recount their miracle landing on Wednesday. The two landed their passenger jet on its belly after the landing gear wouldn’t deploy.

Here are some photos from Warsaw showing how you move a B767 without any gear.
