    A smooth landing is not always a good one. What I see there is an aircraft not touching down where it is supposed to be, reducing the available runway remaining to slow down. And thought he wheels touched down softly, The aircraft still was halted by ground effect pretty quickly...I could be wrong but maybe it wasn't as comfy for the passengers.

    First problem here.... it's an Airbus.... almost always a bad landing, aircraft not pilot (except if it's SAS or Alitalia). Show me a bad landing in a Boeing and I'll show you a bad pilot.

    The US Airways pilots always do a great landing @ MAN, never in the 5+ years I've been there and seen one land have I seen a bad one, but that is a great video, Simon Lowe's are the best out there, in my opinion.

    True, but the 330 is the best looking landing plane, i mean look at the gears, they look like an eagle waiting to touchdown.
