That pilot was good! Dead center on the runway from touchdown to full stop and he probably was easy on the brakes and reverse thrusters to keep the downforce off the nose gear as much as he could so it wouldn't collapse.

Any landing that you walk away from is a good landing, but that was a great landing.

Looks like he reduced the airspeed, had the flaps fully extended and kept flipping the elevators up to keep the nose up as long as it would stay up until gravity took over. Then probably just feathered the brakes and let it slide to a stop. I concur. Excellent piloting skills.

This one will be lost on Gen Z and a majority of Millennials, but for the rest of us that still value what our flag still stands for, this is good news.

Imagine a couple doing this on that Jetblue Flight


:rofl:

This is old, but I am quite sure every single person who got off this plane had happy vibes (Arjun, quit looking up adult toys on Amazon)....
