RE: Tail Stikes And Ground Clearance

There are also quiet a lot of tailstrikes during landing flare. I think even more than during take off.

The only airplane I know who has a special landing and take off technique is the 757-300.

On take off you have to rotate to 5* initialy, hold it, and at 50 feet you can rotate further!

RE: "Turn Right 095"... Etc. What It Means?

That´s again a phrase from ATC wich is not correct.

It has to be: Turn right heading 095.

But mostly only Pilots will say this without the term heading. As far in my expierence, ATC will almost always
say heading in front of 095.
