For The Pilots On Here, A Damn Good Landing.

From a layman's view it looks a good effort.

This pilot deserves a raise. [VIDEO]

I think he should have touched down on the right main first and then the nose gear. The side load would cause the nose wheels to caster straight ahead.

...and if the airplane is reusable it's a great one!

I'll have to remember to land 12 incehs left of centerline at 25L from now on as to avoid the groove he put in there - LOL

There is a pretty hefty landing fee at LAX,so finally they got their money's worth.

Re: For The Pilots On Here, A Damn Good Landing.

Actually landing at "Big Boy" airports can be interesting. You gotta have all the right gear but basically they can't stop you.

We landed at Orange County (John Wayne) years ago. Our approach speed was like 70 knots - We were asked to give , "Best speed" - Floored it with flaps up and got like 90.

737s were passing by on the parallel runway.

Ate burger at the cafe and left. That's called the $100 hamburger. $80 bucks in gas and $20 for the burger.

No one complained on the radio but apparently this exchange has taken place. When you are "cleared to land" - you own the final approach path and runway until you are done and turned off the runway..

"United 727 you are number 2 behind the Cessna. Cessna one-two-bravo cleared to land."
"LA tower, United 727. Please ask the Cessna to expedite."
"United 727 slow to 130 kts. You are #2."
"LA tower unable to do 130 and if the Cessna doesn't clear it will cost us a $10 thousand dollars go around" (miss the approach)
"United 727 you are cleared for the $10 thousand dollar go-around..."

Re: For The Pilots On Here, A Damn Good Landing.

I was in a 172 out of Barnstable MA in about my third or fourth flight as a new Private Pilot right after Reagan fired the controllers. I left at dawn for a breakfast run to Chatham, not realizing that the tower was not going to be manned when I got back. I was suddenly in all kinds of traffic and the guy behind me in a Mitsubishi radioed that he was having to fly S turns to stay in the sky. He asked if I could keep my speed up. I was so green, I came in fast and used up most of a mile of runway getting that old Cessna to stick. I guess I learned that just because the wheels were on the ground didn't mean the wing wasn't still flying.

Would you call this a soft field landing by Jetblue?

And it's a new world record. Post #4 already second guesses a perfect landing.

Soft field - Yes. Actually he did great but there is an older one from south America where the nose gear didn't come down at all. That guy went really high alfa (nose way high) Looks like he held it off until the plane was almost stopped only skidded a couple hundred feet.

We used to do airshows - my dad would throw jumpers out - used to work with an amputee group called "pieces of eight" - whacky group. The leader was missing a leg. When he landed his girlfriend would run out with his leg and stick it on him - great finale.

Anyway we did the Marine show at El Toro. 15,000 foot runway. We are STOL and landed in like 300 feet from the numbers. "Alpha Sierra follow the "follow me" truck to airshow parking mid-field."

7,000 feet away! Faced with a 20 minute taxi (whatever - slow) we just took off and landed again 6,500 feet down the road - LOL...
