I just don't understand why they don't do some positive rudder just before touchdown to get longitudinally aligned. But I guess they know what they are doing.
I think everyone would appreciate FLARING the aeroplane before landing a little more.
I used to do a very
steep approach in Metro 2's in the mid 90's when I flew into the secondary airport in Sydney at about 3am - I think they would have been more like 20°+ and there was no way you could flare off that, I'd have to add power to slow the rate of descent.
FWIW it was flight idle power, full flap, gear down, 105 kts indicated. The rate of descent was about 3,000 fpm so with a little headwind that makes for a pretty darn steep base & final leg.
On-topic - the BA-146 has extremely strong trailing-link landing gear so whilst it would have been a very firm landing if they tried that in a lot of other aeroplanes they might have pulled the wings off.
