Strange approach.

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

That's why those Russians design heavy duty landing gears.  Wink

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

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.

Is this kind of approach common in the CRJ?. The two times I have flown a CRJ the approaches have been quite amazing. Usually a quick flare really close to the ground makes for an exciting landing. Fun but freaky if you are not use to it.

CRJ's 200, have no leading edge slats so they come in over the fence quite fast for their size.

Twin Otters, like CRJs, also have a nose-down attitude on approach that is very noticeable (and can be a bit scary the first time) in the cabin. And this is true anywhere--not just when diving over that hill at St. Barths!

I think this one was carrying CSKA Moscow fans to Lisbon for the UEFA Cup Final on May 18th. I saw heaps of Russian planes on approach on the days I spent there.

I'm not going to complain about the thread starter's grammar, but about the title in general. It is against the rules to name your thread like that.

He could have named it like "Picture Of Unusual Approach" or "Approaching Dont Right Look (Picture)" or whatever, but not like this, with the pure intent to make his thread more popular, hoping that people click on it because they think it contains a picture of Elvis watching PTV in Lufthansa Economy.

OK, complaining time is over for me. COOL PICTURE!

There is or there was a pic on Anet with a plane somewhere in the Caribbean, on short finals but very unalinged with the runway. Pic was taken from the jumpseat and airline wasn't mentioned. Searched a half hour but got no results. Maybe someone can help.

Have seen a Tupolev in FRA landing with front gears. First I thought that we have to expect a crash but it landed safely.
Was very impressive to see.
