I know that the narration is annoying, but I had to share because this would definately wake me up. Some of you try to act hard core when it comes to not being afraid during flying situations. Many of you act like any irregular operation is "no big deal". But I bet you'd grab you arm rest if the wind tossed you around like it does this aircraft. Enjoy. Go here for the link... NW 757 landing at SEA...

When you have been in the industry a while and weathered (pardon the pun) many irregular operations, it does become "no big deal". If this is your first time, then it is a "big deal". Everything is relative to the person involved.

I am not hard core, but it takes A LOT to phase me, honestly, that landing would not have. It would, however, be something to talk about.

Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing. Ask any pilot.

Someone already posted a link to that video (same clip, different news broadcast) here:

Aborted Landing Video

The two other links in that thread are more hairy than this one, in my opinion.

I was on a UK internal flight from Stansted to Blackpool and we had a very strong runway crosswind at BLK, the pilot aborted for a go around.

Landed OK on second approach.

Alright tough guy... I don't care who you are, that was definitely something to be concerned about... From the looks of it, as he's climbing away, the right gear is jiggling, seeming that it touched down. Regardless, that pilot earned his full pay that flight!

I experienced a landing like this at SCQ back in August 2004 in an Air Europa 737-800. Extremely high winds, low clouds, and heavy rain was more or less the cause. The 737-800 came right to the end of the runway but we were blown all over the place on approach and on touchdown right down till the end of the runway.

We even made it to the news as well!  Wink

Sometimes you have to take a persons background in to account when dealing with situations. I have been a flight attendant for as long as you have been alive (Damn!, I am 42. Am I old that old, already?). I have had more than my share of rough landings. You get used to it. Really. Was it a wild ride, yes. Concerned, no. But again:

The pilot did a phenomonal job. Just as would be expected.

That must be REALLY scary for the passengers. I'm far from an expert but shouldn't the pilot have initiated a go-around earlier rather than waiting till the wheels were bouncing all over the runway?

I dont care how long you have been a flight attendant. A landing like that IS something to be concerned about. If it was bad enough that the pilot coudn't safely land the plane and had to go around it was probably something YOU should have been concerned about. I hope you were doing your silent review. It amazes me how some f/a's become so complacent. Scared, maybe not. Concerned, you should have been. Just my .02

Thank you for your concern. I always do my 30 second review (what CO calls it). 100% of the time, every take off, every landing. Always expect and plan for the unexpected.

I stand by what I have said.  Smile

Like some of the statements above, the crew did a good job. Ive had some wild flights and landings myself. Not trying to act jaded, but Im sure I would have grabbed the armrest on that one myself. However when you're in a jumpseat the perspective is a bit different than when your a pax. But yes it definately gives you something to talk about when the trip is over.

Those pilots earned their check with that landing. It appears that they were close to losing that plane? I could be wrong but my guess is they would have lost the machine if they did not power back up and go around.

Not that big of a deal.If you don't like the way things look just go-around. In a 757(and I've flown that A/C) its even easier than most.

I flew into Seattle that very morning from Anchorage at about 6:10 am. The captain had informed us that there was windshear, but he did not specify low level windshear. As we were about 600 feet from touchdown, the plane dropped, everyone started screaming. I thought I was going to die. The pilot continued the approach while the plane was rocking back and forth. I remember thinking gosh, he can't possibly land right now as we were about 100 feet from touchdown. He finally landed and the whole cabin started clapping. Our turbulence was way worse than that 757, we were in a 737-800.

I guess none of you have flown in or out of WLG - that film clip wouldn't have made the news there - in fact I don't think any of the WLG locals would have bothered with a second glance at that approach - just routine ops Big grin
