Dodgy approach in good weather, at least it touched down with the mains - together.

Probabily got moderate right crosswind on final approach. Anyway, Ilheus is quite a crictical runway. No room for mistakes. Nice shot, Doria!

Nice light. and I love the forest in the backround. But I do agree, their has got to be a light crosswind or somthing to make him go to the right like that

I might be seeing things but is that a wire between the tail and fuselage? If so, what is it for? I've never seen that before. I don't see any grass standing straight so I would assume there is some difficult wind. Great photo.

The wire you see is an antenna

It holds the tail to the fuselage :P Actually, it's for NDB navigation, as uncommon as that is. 5*!

Beautiful light and great action for what apparently should be an ordinary landing. Also the wires are for HF communication, not NDB.
