A few full side-to-side deflections before breakfast. That's how I like it.

That had to be a wild ride for people sitting in the aft end...makes me wonder if overhead luggage racks opened and projectiles started flying?

Bad enough to throw Jennifer out of the shower.

Nearly ground-looped. Impressive.

I think that landing was as beautiful as ship herself!

Default WOW, yeah WOW

As in, weight on wheels. I've seen a few accident investigation show nerdery, read NTSB reports, etc. and seen this weirdness of Buses reducing control inputs upon WoW. Now, I am not a Bus guy. But from what the video shows, it's "all is well", then the FO (I kid) plants the right main, with about 10 degrees of crab and 1000 fpm descent, then it just gets ugly. Is this flight control reduction really a thing? Bus guys, I'm looking for some insight. If I ever had my Super cub tell me I couldn't put full aileron deflection in, who knows all the ground loop stories I'd have.
