Canada Rouge at Montego Bay

With respect to the crew, who I am sure didn't set off that morning to (almost) wreck an aircraft, this could be another reminder to the pilot community to stay sharp at the pointy end, hopefully endorsed by a supportive training department. Notwithstanding the balls up of an approach, it's the last couple of hundred feet which are really interesting. Touchdown at 108 KIAS, 15,3 deg AoA, 125 ft past the threshold, at 3,12 G with a last second attempt to save it with full thrust. We all know which accident it resembles, in this case they just had enough energy to make it to the runway.

Report: Canada Rouge A319 at Montego Bay on May 10th 2014, hard landing at +3.12G
