BA004 landing video

I’ve heard the landings into LCY tend to be “firm” due to the short runway, and given that the A318 is the largest plane flying into the airport, I was expecting a rough landing. So for the first time ever I decided to take a video on a plane and upload it to YouTube. I apologize in advance for the crappy quality. I used a five year old awful camera with a half broken lens, which can only be outdone by my shaky hands.

Let me know if you like these types of videos or not. If some of you do I’ll be sure to take one tomorrow on takeoff out of LCY, which I hear is also an adventure.

  1. Love the video! I may never make it to LCY in my life, so this’ll at least give me a little taste of it.


  2. You left an electrical device with an on/off switch on during landing? And the plane still landed safely!?! Amazing.

  3. A U-turn at the end of the runway and taxiing back up that runway, nice.

    Any aviation buffs that want to comment on the use of the single spoiler on approach.
