Re. "landing", the 50s pedants term for flying boat water touch-downs, was 'alighting
I think the Air Ministry was having a bob each way, the Sunderland pilot notes give the procedures for "alighting" but says the aircraft is fitted with "landing lamps", for runways only perhaps. The USN just mentions landing in their flying boats.
