Surprised to see this wing low landing since the flight manual I saw states that the 154 is decrabbed only after touchdown.

A visitor from Mauritius posted Sat May 5, 2012:
I'd say there must have been crosswind from plane's right to left; so the flight crew were still crabbing when they touched down. Notice that the rudder was still deflected to keep in plane slightly right while fighting the crosswinds which was still providing lift to the right wing.

A visitor from Belgium posted Fri March 13, 2009:
Proffesional landing, lovely aircraft! I love it!

Just exciting the crowd, everything is under control :-)

A visitor from Finland posted Fri April 7, 2006:
Very nice photo. Tupolevs are soo beautiful and this picture shows the best of it. Btw, American who said left main gear is on centerline. Maybe you could think abit what you say, you see in reality the airraft is perfectly centered, only the angle the picture is taken from fools your eye.

A visitor from United States posted Tue April 4, 2006:
Great photo! I like his technique of setting the main left gear right on the center line!!!!!!

A visitor from United States posted Mon April 3, 2006:
"technique performed as per the book"??? I didn't realize that included left main almost on the centerline!!! cool pic though!

The photo is great! But last comment isn't;)

A visitor from Greece posted Mon February 27, 2006:
Nice moment!!!I guess that Aeroflot will stop offering vodka to passengers and crew during flight...

A visitor from United States posted Mon January 16, 2006:
Probably, the best airlines related photo I've seen. But, again, I haven't seen too many of them.

A visitor from United States posted Mon January 2, 2006:
Very good photo, and there's nothing wrong with the bank angle- the aeroflot pilots are actually demonstrating the wing-low technique perfectly

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu December 15, 2005:
It is a good shot! like the a/c

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu December 15, 2005:
How is that the landing of the year, look at the bank angle, that aint safe man

A visitor from Belarus posted Thu December 15, 2005:
Great. See also photo 760016 : it's another shot of the same landing a few seconds before.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu December 15, 2005:
Wing-Down method, standard cross wind landing technique performed as per the book.

A visitor from Costa Rica posted Wed December 14, 2005:
Definitely one of the coolest landings i`ve ever seen so far!! "good" job by the pilot hehe
