I was on a Delta flight into PDX the other night (3/29) on an MD90. Lots of rain, wind, and limited visibility. While descending to land, all of a sudden the engines throttled WAY up (that strong push-you-back-in-your-seat acceleration). Pretty bouncy the rest of the way in, throttle up and down, and the final landing felt faster than most landings.
I’m not a commercial pilot (so not an expert), but it felt to me like the pilot got outside the desired glidepath and was playing catch-up the rest of the way in. Or is it normal in an MD90 to use a heavy hand on the throttle during landing?
