    Default Windy plane...

    Do you think the middle pilot was after overtime??

    Not sure I'd want to be a passenger on any of these...
    I didn't say it was your ******* fault, I said I was blaming you!

    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.

    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 .

    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!
