So, I have watched this video many times and it still amazes me every single time. One of the things that are bugging me is when the aircraft lifts her nose really sharply before puting her nose landing gear on the ground. Was that something intentional, maybe the pilot trying to use the whole body of the plane as a giant spoiler or was it something unexpected?
I would love to hear from the pilots around here what would have been - more or less - the sequence of events in that landing. I don´t know, maybe for someone who flies those things for a living is a pretty normal landing (in those conditions), but for me is something quite amazing...
I guess what I am trying to ask is: how did they do it? How did they manage to put that plane down on a pretty uneven surface and get it stopped in such a short distance?
Thank you very much!
