Good job capturing that. That must have been scary for the passengers inside that plane.

It seems that the pilot put idle thrust early...
then the rate of descent increased just after crossing the threshold, resulting in a hard touchdown, before the 1,000 marks..and he have tried to pitch up to minimize the problem...

in curitiba/brazil/sbct, a few years ago, a ERJ145 crashed on landing in this circunstances..but in that case, the tail crashed :P

Great shot Dan. Minus the smoke, it looks like a rotation!

Great Capture! :) I'd say that's an 'ok' landing. Smoke shows how quick the tyres matched the speed of the aircraft upon touchdown, so in essence, the more smoke the better (unless it's actually a genuine fire)
