Subject field(s)
  • Aircraft Piloting and Navigation

According to the pilot's statement, the aircraft ballooned on touchdown due to an excessive approach airspeed and the nose wheel came down hard on the second runway contact. After a short stop ... the pilot departed on a flight to Las Vegas ... After arrival ... the pilot discovered the damage to the nose gear strut and firewall during a routine postflight inspection ... Probable cause: the pilot's use of an excessive approach airspeed and an improper bounced landing recovery technique.


After this accident ... Fed EX developed a tail strike awareness training program that included bounced landing recovery in its simulator training. That program limited pitch altitude to 7-½ deg for recovery from a bounced landing.

«T'as vu la jauge?» Bon d'accord, on a dû abuser! C'est pas grave, ça sera un encadrement, avec un atterrissage sans même un soupçon de rebond.
