To the actual A340 600 pilots:

How much degrees do you reckon is the ADI pitch attitude in the below picture? According to the A340 400 POH what is the recommended flare angle?

Cheers.

It's not what the pitch attitude is on the ADI at the time of that picture, there's many other considerations one must put into place...for instance, the photo's description commented about multiple bounces. Perhaps that final deck angle (roughly 9-12 degrees) is the result of some mechanical turbulence due to gusty winds, or, perhaps, in a lack of better words, poor airspeed control on final, causing the crew to 'salvage' the landing at the last moment.

I can't find anything in the POH about a max pitch up that translates to a tail strike.

Thanks plain smart - you are correct - poor airspeed control on final as well as perhaps bad weather conditions.

Delta guy - hahahahah, remember my tailstrike questions? Well I guess they were all for good - it is good to be aware and know the basics on tailstrike avoidance such as:

1. Do not over-rotate
2. Check you elevator trim is set in the proper takeoff position
3. Take utmost caution in V1 and hence Vr calculation - because you do not want to rotate too early.

These are all handy especially with birds like the 737 900, 757, 767, A340 600 etc.

Cheers all.

V1 +5 seems to the be normal procedure on the NG

I imagine quite a few people do.

1. Do not over-rotate

Sound advice, perhaps. But I certainly hope it is obvious.

On every checklist I have ever seen for any aircraft that has elevator trim.

I really hope you don't go up to the cockpit and remind the pilots of this before every flight...
