    F/D mode has a runway light avoidance feature? I stand in awe.
    Yes, in fact it avoids the entire runway.

    First thrust to get the F/D mode, then pitch to follow it, is, I think, how it is best played.

    I never read the book, but I think I’d do the thrust thing and pitch concurrently, sort of like on a bicycle when you lean and turn in a simultaneous and coordinated matter...

    Remember, every prior landing for these pilots, including a number of challenging ones, was probably “perfect”.

    I totally agree though, that if you are going to have an incident, it’s probably best to go around. If you aren’t going to have an incident, then a go around is not needed.

    But seriously folks, I believe the proper technique when you've lost the edge lights in heavy rain and have no centerline reference and find yourself misaligned 900ft down the runway is to first use thrust. Then pitch. Then flaps. Then gear...

    Obviously, the situation required rapid rudder deflections in both directions leading to PIO and APCs and then stopping the aircraft somewhere and walking away from it.

    Although the captain realised the aircraft was on the right-hand side of the runway at about 15ft, he opted to apply left rudder input, rather than left roll, to recover. The rudder input shifted the aircraft’s drift angle to the left but made no significant change to the lateral deviation.
    Oh, it didn't!? What a surprise, uh?
