That's a captain's only landing then I take it. I've been to some crazy strips but that takes the cake in that equipment. Cracking vid, thanks.

pretty short runway for a 757!

reminds me of Pantelleria where we go a lot (small Italian island in the Med off the Tunisian coast)

Not a big problem for us (in ATR) but is interesting to watch 757 and A321 operating there.

Pros need only apply, the others can only wish they were so proficient.

What's a good name for a Ppruner who posts a video link that has already been posted a half-dozen times?

Or am I being redundant again?
