Do you think the middle pilot was after overtime??

Not sure I'd want to be a passenger on any of these... :eek

Abort, abort, abort! Bet the pilot's adrenal glands were pumped after that landing.

Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing, although I'd imagine a few passengers walked off the first plane like John Wayne.

The last landing was on the button - I've been in worse than that.

Agreed, generally with Ryan Air when my previous client wouldnt pay real flight prices. :laugh

Tell me captain - did we land or were we shot down? (TM someone on the internet)

Ryan Air have a pretty good safety record.

Birmingham perchance? Still - some good skills from the pilots and a handsome profit for Knickerbox.

Yeah .... but for an airline I go for 'Exceptional' as the baseline.

I flew on BMI and experienced what is know as a 'no flaps' landing. (phnar) That was a little bit :eek.

Had a landing like that in plymouth on a little prop driven plane (think it was with air southwest)

many people looked very shaken when we got off!
