    New Way of parking at a Mall

    Plane lands in mall car park.

    Sounds like it is a popular place to go shopping by plane.

    Seriously, I'm glad no one was hurt.

    Looks like a good landing.

    (For reference, the definitions are:

    A good landing is any one you can walk away from.
    A great landing is one after which you can reuse the airplane.)

    So... good, but not great.
