In case they had an issue with the brakes they actually did pretty good.
At the end of the landing roll the deceleration was less than what you would expect with 3000PSI on the brakes, even on a slightly wet runway.

Did you see the Video on AvHerald showing the touch down area?

I suspect that the Americans can manage spelling and punctuation though. More than some "superior beings" can manage.

Well, I don't have enough info to "comment". But I can ask a question: It's a N-registered airplane but does that mean it was flown by American pilots ?

Can you present unequivocally accurate data showing the crew was American ?

Never heard of them, I'm a US pilot. But there by the grace of God go I, ?

Perhaps they can in the languages they use; but little understanding or comprehension, let alone mastery in the usage of the English language.

How did you conclude it was a "usa pilot"?

From Smartwings.com:
SmartWings is a brand of the Czech airline Travel Service.

Only experienced and perfectly trained pilots fly for Travel Service and its brand for regular low-cost lines SmartWings.Training and testing of pilots take place in accordance with strict rules of the European Union at training centres with modern appliances for training pilots – complex flight simulators, not only in the Czech Republic but also in other countries within the European Union. Based on this focused training, the pilots from the company Travel Service and SmartWings obtained the license which permits them to make flights in Europe, Africa, North and South America, to Near and Middle East and to the countries of Southeast Asia.

Even by the standards often seen here, OP's post staggers me by its rudeness. If you replace US with gender, race or religion it would be illegal in much of the western world. Why have we descended so low?

And yet is what we normally see when the involved airline is from Eastern Europe or Middle/Far East and nobody gets their pants in a twist ;)

but that would be rude, so instead this:

Its obvious whats happened here; and clearly a European problem.

The (alleged) US Pilots performed a textbook landing.
Your Europen Runway is obviously in the wrong place.
Please, move it 2000' in the direction of landing and update via NOTAM.

Well, if...IF...this airplane was a Swift Air wet lease, they might be. They apparently do have a European operation. As usual, maybe people ought to wait for the official determination and details on this particular event.

Here's more than you'd ever want to know about Swift. See post #471:

As a lowly US national, private pilot, I would like to apologize unreservedly on behalf of all US citizens around the globe. This minor mistake by these two citizens is inexcusable, and the US should see about revoking their citizenship. Our standards are perfection only, and when one of us doesn't live up to that it reflects poorly on all of us. Shame, shame, shame. How will the US ever hold its head high again?
