What is the Slowest Speed You Have Ever Landed at?

-10 in a 738 at KLAX during a storm or tornado or whatever

If we’re talking about airliners, I always float so much during my landings, so even though my approach speed might be 135-145 kts, I probably don’t actually touch down until closer to 100 kts. :)
Same for the Cessna; I probably touch down at around 50 kts.

Looking at all the replies, I think it may be wise to clarify if you mean airspeed or ground speed 😉

Messing around in solo I actually got a - speed in a Decathalon. Not smooth, but I most likely survived…

(thats gs, as was about 50)

90KTS In a q400

The other day, I decided to fly the TBM in a 98 kts headwind. I was flying so slow that I actually landed backwards! (This was in solo but I think it still counts)

Don’t know the speed, but all I know is there was a 230 Kts wind (used A321)

In an A319, 102 Knots on solo, although, I had some tailwind helping me

I do this all the time to “hover” at the airport, it’s quite fun lol

100kt in the A320, 61kt with the TBM. Both with strongish crossish wind.

I believe tail wind would rather require faster Gs…

About -5 Knots in a Cessna with heavy wind at LAX 😂

Messed around with the winds a bit in solo… landed with a ground speed of 0 and an airspeed of 97 in the TBM today. :)
