Guess he was above the normal glidepath. It sure doesn't look like a stabilized approach.

A quick flare, and some heavy duty landing gear. No problem for the the old Tuppy...

Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.

The writing on the aircraft side states Yuri Gagarin Cosmonauts Training Centre.
I don't think any passengers are going to be particularly concerned about this landing  Wink

It is the Open Skies Treaty Aircraft, it is used to verify weapon's treaty compliance by visual means (cameras/sensors). There is a US equivalent of the plane as well.

Link or Reference please. Z8 nailed it as being a Cosmonaut training center airplane.

For the thread starter: "Don't" is a contraction of "do not". Did you really mean to say "This do not look right" rather than "This does not look right"?

If you see the tail, you can see the angle of attack that is trying to pull the nose up for the flare...!!!

Any landing that leaves you capable of walking off the plane is a good one..!  Smile

Us lowly people from the land of "Foreign" sometimes see television programs from the US, and I can tell you, you're not always helping when it comes to teaching the world the English language.  box

Just an aside; saying "this don't look right", might show a significant sophistication with English. Is the writer mimicking the colloquialisms common in the U.S.? Gotta (oops) say, I like his subject matter regardless of how he writes/speaks English.
