This idiot. It was 500 rvr when he landed. Survived this time but Darwin is going to catch up with him. Couldn't even talk on the the radio.

Better that he saw the lights and was legal to land at 500 RVR reporting than the jackwagons that called it 800 RVR when it really was probably 200 RVR when we landed one time.

Me to FO on rollout,

Slow flight down the ILS at 20-30kts with that prop crankin......he probably cleared the fog in front of himself enough to see some lights.
At 30kts, he’s dang near hovering

It is a Saratoga... really slow, and 500 RVR probably was some good vertical visibility (likely 500 ft or greater) to see lights, which is not that bad. If he did it, good for him. I don't think that is necessarily fate-tempting for a light GA aircraft.

What do you mean couldn't talk on the radio?
