Tips to land 747-8

In my opinion, the 747 is very difficult to land, especially from the cockpit, first off it is way too low of a view, so I always have to go into free cam, should I try and land from bottom view on final?

I do but it ends up looking smoother on bottom than it actually is tho


I have flewn the 747 (both variants) quite a lot. I would recommend when the GPWS callouts say “40” start flaring instead of at “30”, or “20”. And flare a lot more aswell. I also find that landing at higher landing speeds helps me aswell.
