Smoothest Landing?

some sort of betting is happening in that cockpit!
I wonder how much he/she
Man, if that had been me flying I would have that clip running on a continuous loop in my "I love me" room at home.
Mechanics dream landing.

I bet the passangers still thought they are flying it was so smooth.
The smoothest landing I ever experienced was on board SWA flight to El Paso. Approach was a very gentle angle, and I could not tell when we touched down.

You know, I think every pilot has that in them but it just depends on what you have had to deal with on the trip, whther you are ready to just get down or really concentrate on the
Quite beautiful for such a large aircraft.
The very definition of a greaser.

Have been on that flight many times and have experienced silky smooth landings. Must be the MAN environment.

On all but the longest runways On-Speed and On-Spot are more important than being the smoothest. Think Navy carrier landings. On-Spot and On-Speed could, perhaps, have avoided the SWA runway excursions at KBUR and KMDW.

Was that Jim Davis? Wouldn't surprise me.

I believe it was Mr. Wayne...aka Preach

Well, that or the 777's on that other link is how it ought to be done instead of a slam down or sticking it although somebody says here that that's how Airlines are training these days. They can do as they want but with a CEO riding, and a Maintenance chief watching, A greaser was expected. I would stick one if there was wx to get solid but not on a clear day.

pretty darn smooth kb
As far as I know, pilots flying for US carriers are trained to "stick it", and that's why the landings generally feel firm as apposed to silky smooth.

Kevin: I believe you are right but there is a big difference in "sticking it" and some of the landings that I have experienced as a pax over the last few years. Clear skies, calm wind and dang near bouncing is just right much. I flew 135 big iron for 30 years+ and had the same pax all the time and faced the same maintenance chief everytime we came in. I was Director of Flight Ops and ran the whole show, but my maintenance chief generally met every flight as we came in. With him on the ground and the CEO on board, I had better grease it.
screw your latte Mr.Boss Man.....bounce bounce bounce (three landings on one flight ain't so bad lol)

Runway 5R at Manchester, England, has nearly 9400' available landing distance, so I wouldn't fault the pilot for making a super smooth landing, and I would definitely fault him for making a carrier type landing. On speed and on spot may be the ticket for a short field landing, but passengers in anything from a C150 on up to the largest airliners are a lot more impressed with smoothness--and it's a whole lot easier on the equipment.

It is not at all easy for all pilots,but some one are smarter and reliable for sure.Like Grant Shui at Cams flight. I have been sitting next to him for few times. I know the difference.

There's a video posted by (I think it's) SpeedbirdHD that is of a handfull of 777's landing at LAX and all of them are just as smooth. I'll see if I can find it. Here we go

Unless I missed it, there wasn't even any nose wheel smoke on that Emirates
Ben Lillie 1
Yeah, that one was probably the best.
You missed it. It was pretty close to when the other plane passed between it and the camera. Way further down the runway than the others.
preacher1 1
You got to admit it was the better of the bunch though although those cargo jockeys did a fine
Just as pretty
That is the first time I ever saw the PERFECT LANDING on video. I would have to say that the Landing Rate was -1,-2 fpm. AWESOME JOB!
preacher1 2
look at that link posted below on those trpl 7's landing at LAX.

One has to wonder if that was the pilot or the auto-pilot. Is Manchester capable of auto-land?
Just to let everyone know. Greased landings is not the preferred procedure for large aircraft. In icy or wet conditions they can be down right dangerous due to skidding on ice or hydro planing on a wet runway. The auto land system will never land a plane that soft.

This video is old... I'm sure it's been posted before.
David Mears 1
One of the smoothest landings I've ever seen!
Maybe it was on Autoland. Just kidding.
Wow!. That was probably the most beautiful landing I've seen in a video. May we all have a landing like that every time!
Alex Cruz 1
Just a little touch!

victor i agree with you as outhwest pilots are known for smooth landings
HerrThor 1
Excellent skills of the pilot!
A very good landing. Will do wonders for tyre longevity
it was so smooth becuase the pilot didnt bring it down fast and hard but he came down so slow and gently put the main gear doen fisrt slowly and then the front gear. it all depends on how strong the wind is at the time and how fast the pilots put it down.
preacher1 3
As I said earlier, I think every pilot has it in them. It depends on what type of flight they have had or mood they are in.
yeah and also the weight of the aircraft
preacher1 2
Well that may make some difference, but as evidenced by these(look at the 777 link), if you are PF, you need to know what is under you. As one of these comments did say too, some airlines are now training for pilots to stick it. I like smooth myself, at least with a clear day. I'll draw a line on wx.

as someone who has been through a few Airbus autolands...that was no autoland.

That landing is all wrist.

Phil's just jealous;lol

Did you look at the other link up above showing 4-5 777's greasing just as No Malice intended and that's a close to an apology you'll get, you old goat.LOL
