Smooth as BUTTER landing KSFO

Did a flight on my Twitch/YouTube stream and had my smoothest landing thus far!

Expert server, evening Southwest Virtual Airlines flight from KLAX to KSFO, approach via RNAV (GPS) RWY 28L. Set up on the approach, then decided to hand fly it in rather than land with instruments.

Such a good landing! But if you hadn’t lowered the nose a little bit before touchdown, it would’ve been not only a greasy landing, but true buttery.

That’s what is call BUTTER!

Thanks for the advice. I notice in the past I tend to flare too high or too early, so I’ve been working on gradually raising the nose at just the right moment. I think in this case I actually scrubbed a teeny bit too much speed before touching down so it brought the nose down.

These lightweight 737s can be tough because they like to float, but I think I’m getting there. I’ll keep practicing!

Thank you!

I’ve had some good landings lately, one of them in that same plane/livery combination. I don’t know if this happens to anyone else but even on good landings the tires go through the runway a bit, making it look like a bad landing.

Here’s a good landing I made (butter? Kinda. Butter song? Yes!)

ItsablacklineYT died because that landing was too smooth for his body to handle

Great landing! I don’t see many 737 butter landings these days. This is fantastic!

Thanks, y’all. Still working on more smooth landings. Flew the A330-300 first time ever tonight had a warm, buttered, toasty landing (considering it was my first landing)! Here’s the clip link: Twitch
