We all love those smooth plane landings. You know, when the aircraft glides onto the tarmac, with no jarring thud as the wheels touch ground, and then comes to a gradual and comfortable stop. Sometimes, we even applaud the captain. Well,it turns out that type of landing may actually be a dangerous stunt in some cases.
Agreed, an over-flared or excessively fast and flat landing can be unsafe.
Pilots should be focusing on safety.
Check out this near disaster, damn lucky they were,
and obviously they should have gone around.
