  • Nordwind A321 at Antalya Goes South ~ Interim Report

    Gabriel, in answer to your question on the other thread, the pitch range for the A320 on touchdown seems to be from fivish nose up to fourish nose down. Up is better though...

    Yes, I saw that one. Classic General Aviation porpoising. Not the first time that it makes its way into transport category jets. Remember FedEx in Narita.

      Yes! But the FedEx crash was preceded by a main gear bounce. This one was a pilot-induced dive onto the nose gear first. The first -3.9deg touchdown I've ever heard of in a modern airliner.
