Saw this today..... I may be completely wrong.... but does that look like a Flap 2 landing? I used to work at CC on the 319 so i was quite used to the flap 3 Config, but that looks like a very shallow angle.... anyone else think it looks like it? Would it be a procedure for strong crosswinds?

Must be normal. You can find this angle on many vids of A320 landings on YouTube.

Perhaps it depends on the length of the runway.

Some more examples of flaps 2 landings, two of my own movies:

That'a not a flap 2 landing - that's a flap 3 landing which is quite normal (it allegedly saves money over a flap full landing depending on which airline you work for!)

When flap 1 is selected on approach it only activates the slats on the leading edge of the wing, with no flap deployed (conversely when flap 1 is selected for takeoff, 10 degrees of flaps is automatically deployed too (called flap 1 f despite being the same lever selection in the cockpit)).

Flap 2 selection will apply 22 degrees of slat, and 15 degrees of flap
Flap 3 selection will apply an extra 5 degrees of flap, therefore 20 degrees.
Flap Full selection will apply 27 degrees of slat and 40 degrees of flap.

NB This only applies to the A319/320. The 321 has double slotted flaps to ensure the aircraft behaves the same way as the 319/320, and has different angles of flap as follows:

Flap 1: 0
Flap 1 f: 10
Flap 2: 14
Flap 3: 21
Flap Full: 25

Obviously if you're sat behind the wing you won't notice the slat deployment at flap 1 so it will look like a flap 2 landing.

easyJet for example use flap 3 landing pretty much universally whereas Aer Lingus use flap full.

For some reason the "Plus" sign wont' post between 1 and F - it's supposed to read 1 PLUS F
