Quote from: SarDragon on September 06, 2016, 04:42:49 AMThis one shows it a little better. The approach end of 18 is elevated from the surrounding terrain, and nobody lands "on the numbers", because of the lack of threshold.

Nobody got hurt and no downtown buildings were damaged. :clap:Lt. Sarah Chantal Rovner was commended for carrying out a landing that even veteran pilots would find difficult.

And the drop off at the approach end tends to give you that "sinking feeling" if the sea breeze is blowing about the time you cross over it. Which is why most people tend to come in a bit high.
Quote from: Live2Learn on September 06, 2016, 04:06:44 PMinteresting landing. Must have scared the videographer since the flare, float, and touch down offered a wonderful image of the top of the glare shield. Seemed to be a bit fast on final.
