Pilots don't get enough credit. Having such control over that aircraft only comes with years of flying Experience! Those guys know what they're doing!

How about a thumbs up for all the Pilots around the world!? Thankyou for all you do!!

As a retired corporate pilot I know how hard theses pilots worked to get that plane down safely. Kudos go out to you guys.

Flying like this by instinct and the seat of your pants, in constantly variable wind gusts, needs skill to get it right.
Wrestling with constant trim corrections is no joke.
The last 30 seconds are always a bit hairy because you're almost there, but not quite down.
That last twitch to the right side before touchdown, could have easily had the wing tip scrape the runway, it was very close!
Nice piloting in this clip, - a job well done.👊👍

I know Boeing is down now, but this has to be one of the most sexy/natural/bird looking airplane ever made. I can see a bird landing, not an airplane

I assume that some if not all of the passengers were scared to death.

He landed it like a champ. That correction was superb. Any rookie would have over corrected to much and could have been a disaster.

Crew: “prepare for immediate evacuation upon landing”
Me: “oh, I’m terribly sorry. I’ve already evacuated a few minutes ago. I haven’t got anything left!” Hahahahaha
