We never let our girls have a go at the landings.:uhoh:

I would forget about going around, I think he should use his alternate!

I hope they were playing some music on the PA to go with that moves :}

Sorry Kaptin M, "Link Not Found."

Yeah. How about "Twist and Shout"? ;)

He was probably getting a precision talkdown from ATC :E

Way to close to the runway to be one of mine :p

You've reminded me of the day I had to give an Aer Lingus a practice SRA as part of my initial training. His final comment on transfer to the tower was "Aye, you were doing such a grand job, till you tried to compensate for the wind and pointed us at the perimiter fence" :\

Sorry about that.
The LINK to a VERY skilful aerobatic pilot ( is patched!

Reminds me of my First Solo!!

Yeah. How about "Twist and Shout"? ;)

I'd personally prefer something like "Shake Your Bon Bon", and contributing crew should get a bonus too :E

So much of that flip-flopping oscillation disappears if some use is made of crossed controls. I would have thought that he was hoping that the angle would just ‘go away' in time.

I guess that folk are so worried about touching something expensive, that they don't realise just how much leeway they have with a bit of wing down. Is this the modern teaching to keep it so flat?

That's what an approach would look like if the plane were being flown by my computer with Antivirus running :rolleyes: .

That model flying is spectacular. I would have been more impressed if he'd flown it out one door and back in through another though :p .

Jerricho - you blasphemous, god-fearing soab!
I declare a fat war on you!
Enchilada's - at dawn!!

Soab.........now there's a term that's not used enough these days ;)

'Disgression' doesn't occur very often either!

9th May 2006, 16:01
At least we got to reply #17 before that was pointed out. Oooops.

The video shows their second attempt to land, and yes, they used their alternate afterwards (LPFR). From what I've been informed, the first attempt was even more spectacular. No frightened pax came out of that plane as the crew (cap.) explained to pax what they were doing at that time.

This go-around is better: :)

:eek: :eek:

I admit to making an approach similar to the one above - without the spectacularly scary pitch down. :E

The year was 1982 and the aircraft was a PA-180 Cherokee -

*Hey - it was windy and I was Green* an' I got it on the next try :ok:

Piece of the proverbial to fly like those model guys do - there's no wind, no clouds, no sun to melt the wings.

She did go around......... :hmm:

On my third solo in Canberra (Australia) on 20 March 1979 I was advised by the Talking Traffic Light (ATC for you Jerricho) to expect a late landing clearance as there was an military helicopter hovering near the threshold of R30.
It moved across the threshold and landed on the military side of Canberra airport.
As I crossed the threshold at 50' at 65 knots in a PA28-161 (VH-CBF) I was suddenly and violently pitched right wing down at leats 30 degree - stall siren screaming and all I could see was grass. I hit full throttle pushed the nose down as I was taught until I was about 20' off the deck and got the wings level and slowly got back a climb attitude; 80 knots and flaps up - I then called up 'mmmmissed approach - goooooooung round'.
The Traffic Lights knowing I must have been absolutley [email protected]<hidden>@<hidden>@<hidden>@<hidden> myself called 'Charlie Bravo Foxtrot - go around; make left circuit no need to make any further calls - cleared to land'.
Boy did I go back to the drawing board and read all I could on wake and rotor turbulence and of course discussed with my instructor. Although to this day I thought that the TTLs should have warned me to land long - I mean in a PA28at Canberra on a 5000' black top runaway I could have quite easily used just the last 2500'.
