Final breathtaking scene of spectacular approach. For a second I thought the plane touched runway with its tail wing, but fortunately it was just my imagination. Crazy landing no more I can add.

Nice work! Optical Illusion, design feature, or does the far landing gear leg look flexed rearward? I've seen this on 757s when they apply the brakes hard, and on their nose legs when pushback is a little too firm.

Wonder how that pilot feels when he's landing sideways like that.

Great timing, what luck! Sure does look like he dragged the stab and I'll bet that right main tire wasn't too happy either.

What were the winds when this Sukhoi landed? I would assume that he is purposely landing with proper crosswind correction, with that said, it's still a bit close. Rock on, Russia!
