But I guess they know what they are doing.
They didn't. They were way too late in flaring, and probably should have done a missed approach in the first place. That plane never flew out of LCY.
I was talking about touching down with so much crab. Of course they goobered the round out and flare, that was so apparent it goes without saying. I was talking about how we have seen a lot of this commercial aircraft landing with side loading of the gear in these videos.
Ah, I missed that, sorry
I believe commercial aircraft are designed to touch down with a big crab angle, rather than small GA aircraft that have to be landed straight. There are lots of vids of big Boeings being tested in crosswinds on Youtube. Pretty interesting, and at the same time harrowing, to watch.
In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!
