The difference between the two is that one is carrying people and the other one is carrying boxes. I have rarely seen boxes file a complaint about a rough or scary landing.

This is what pilots show to their constipated pasengers.

For some reason the first two pics reminded me of DC-3's - maybe I was expecting a tail wheel.

LOL i have often wondered if they've put jet engines on a DC-3 style type plane with rear tail wheel.

flare, is that when the aircraft raises the nose right before landing?

Flare is where the plane is close to tough down and the pull nose up and semistall it into a perfect landing.

Higher AOA due to slower airspeed. I see it and feel it more on Airbus aircraft than others in normal circumstances. All perfectly normal. When flying with new hires and when giving line checks, the tendency of the majority of pilots I fly with is to be a bit quick on landing, perhaps the "10 knots for Mum" thing at work. This result in a shallower touchdown angle. On my particular aircraft the Vr and Vref speeds tend to be very close for a given weight and as a result an "on the numbers" touchdown very closely resembles a rotational pitch atitude as well......
Airplanes are cool. Aviation sucks.
