I know the runway is supposed to be there on that gassed area, so I try and head in that general direction. Even with Autopilot off, my speed was bouncing between 130-180 knots. It was hard enough to fly let alone keep straight and level.
With the shifts in air speed being so great, my misjudgment on thrust almost stalled the aircraft, so I had to add more thrust. In addition a gust of wind catches me from the south west resulting in a climb much too high…and I still wasn’t straight.
Over corrected, but still…I’m now at a better altitude. Even though everything else is wrong. But if I can just manage to keep off the side of the runway…don’t want to hit a taxiway at 120kts…
Looks like I’ll make it by a hairs width…but I’m too low to level out completely. This might get ugly.
Left rears touchdown first as I once again manage to be blown sideways in the 3 feet between me and then runway. But something isn’t right…I can’t drop the other tyres. Answer;
Engine strike. And moments later…
But finally, I slow down enough for the plane to just drop on its other wheels…but the nose wheels aren’t on the ground yet…
Finally at a standstill in the middle of the runway, emergency evacuation begins on Jet Airways Flight 1102 😂
Hope you liked my comic strip 😝
