Guys, a hear a lot of you are having trouble landing the C-130. Here’s a quick tip:
Do not flare. The C-130 isn’t constructed to flare, instead you transition.
What does that mean, you ask?
Well, instead of flaring like you are used to in all other aircraft, you simply skip that part. Keep it steady in the same pitch you have had in your approach. Continue on the glide slope until you hit the ground.
If you want to stop fast, you do the same thing. But as soon as you hit the ground, you push - yes, PUSH the nose wheel down on the runway while you apply full reverse thrust and brakes. If you are on a short runway, apply full reverse thrust already 20-30ft above the runway.
Remember, this is a military transport aircraft - there is no such thing called “comfort” here. Your job is to get the aircraft on the ground.
