How about a nod to the tires?

The video below was posted to Digg with the following description:

What happens when 120 tons of landing Boeing 767 encounters severe turbulence just above the runway? You get to see the incredible strength of modern engineering. Watch the wings flex and the landing gear absorb the shock.

After watching the video, especially 1:00 to 1:10, I’d like to add that the landing gear is only as good as the tires, and these tires do their job very very well. For the record, Bridgestone is the OEM supplier for the Boeing 767.
