Why not two words: unstabilized approach?
|Quoting spacecadet (Reply 3):|
The pilots were joking around during the unstabilized approach, and the captain never called for a go-around despite realizing the approach was destabilized just prior to touchdown. Instead he called out "stabilize!" That should have been "go around!" instead and we wouldn't be talking about this.
|Quoting SEPilot (Reply 13):|
The only accident where this happened to a DC-10 was UA232; but this was obscured by the miracle of the plane making the runway at all.
|Quoting SpaceshipDC10 (Reply 14):|
Then the landing gear impacted heavily the ground of the runway's left hand edge and was sheared off. Then as the aircraft was skidding to the right at high speed and tumbling on its back, the outer part of the wing was demolished.

Was the Martinair DC10 crash at Faro not similar as well?

e toast our faithful comrades
Now fallen from the sky,
And gently caught by God's own hand
To be with Him on high.
To dwell among the soaring clouds
They knew so well before,
From dawn patrol and victory roll
At Heaven's very door.
And as we fly among them there
We're sure to hear their plea,
"Take care, my friend; watch your six,
And do one more roll just for me.
-Commander Gerald Coffee
