A "heavy" landing heavily. Fabulous capture.

Boy , that's burnnng some rubber.
Note the wind sock at lower left. Dead cross wind landing in a reasonably stiff breeze. Easy to understand "positive ground contact."

The MD-11 has a higher landing speed than most other commercial aircraft, resulting in many heavy landings like this one. For that reason it has also been involved in several accidents and incidents during landing. This higher landing speed was the result of having reduced the size of its tail assembly. This had to be done to meet customer’s requirements to increase its range on long haul routes on this stretched fuselage version of it’s predecessor the MD-10.

I definitely wish the MD-11 had been a greater success as a passenger aircraft. All series of the 777 are excellent, but in my opinion, the MD-11 is much more majestic.
