Due to extra strong structure (particularly - the nose leg) of this outstanding machine those slap-dash pilots have one more chance to stay alive and safe...

by the way - great shot!

Nice photo, but wonderful touch down it isn't.Could have written the a/c off and almost certainly damaged it quite seriously.

Guys, the touchdown is very smooth. They still have plenty of lift even at low speed due to four props blowing large flaps. So this landing is little bit overspeeded one and they have to maintain negative angle of atack to make her descend just some centemeters per second! It's not crual to touch front wheels first, this is only our warped judgment to think so.
