    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.

    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...
