High PF Landing

Recommended Posts

Have been practicing flying the C-123 heavy, at or near max. gross weight of 51,900 lbs, as this is now my JF Cargo Pilot ride of choice. This was a landing on a 4,004 ft runway. The approach was a bit high and fast and I didn't touch down until mid-field or later. Should have gone around, but that's how we learn, and if it wasn't hard, it wouldn't be fun.

Anyway, this is where I got it stopped. Plenty of room, I didn't even need the over-run pad. Did need to push back from there to taxi away, however.

Pucker Factor meter was deep in the yellow crossing the threshold, with an upward trend.

Mulletman,

I expect there's a Herc in my future, but want to get proficient in the Provider for a while first. ...and I do love radial engines.

Joe Ellwood,

Thanks. How's ground school going? Like drinking from a fire hose?

John

Joe,

I'll bet you're looking forward to it, and I'm sure you'll do well. Keep us posted how it's going once you get started.

I did mine in 1980, and still remember some of it.

John
