ATR deep dive to land

Sun May 07, 2017 2:30 am

Hi!

Am I right to suppose that there is no procedure in the books for such a landing? This is short of suicidal!

Holy hell thats crazy. Surely must be a military aircraft, that does not look legal at all for a civilian airline.

There isn't really any official ATR standard procedure in the books for landing an ATR 72, apart from retarding the PLs and beginning flare at 20 ft. In any case, this is a visual approach, and they tend to be "non-standard" to begin with.

My guess is that in this particular case (with an observer standing behind the jumpseater), it is most likely base-training of some sort without passengers.

I have experienced equally "impressive" things done in an ATR 72. Not that I would do it myself, but it does demonstrate just how far you could push one of these without getting yourself into trouble.

Looking at the uniform that the guy in the jump seat is wearing, it does look civilian...
I wanna go back upstairs!

This video was posted to Youtube in 2010. Original description attributes the hard landing to stab trim issue, for what that's worth.

Based on the poster's other postings it's probably somewhere in Latin America.

The joking about helicopter landing, well...

And that's why flying T-props is a lot more fun than any other commercial aircraft...
I'll do my own airline. With Blackjack. And hookers. In fact, forget the airline.

Reminds me of the video of the 20000ft/min descent in the C17 in another thread.
