How about simply making a 360 on final....or some "S" turns to loose a little more altitude?

Totally agree. I mean at least fly a couple of circles to get down low enough. I mean a jam pitch trim isn't enough of an aircraft the size of an ATR to do that kind of approach. I do hope that the passengers survivied the landing.

WOW! I have seen some pilots do some interesting landings (like a CRJ landing on a 5800ft runway but touching down at least half way down)but this one is a little crazy! You could definitely tell they were way too high...I am surprised that the didn't go around!

Why would a jam in the pitch trim force this kind of approach?

Navy carrier aviator, or what? I would have to call this the 'kamikaze approach'. Similar to the overhead 360, but without the 360. Can they still use the airplane?

There were lucky that they did not hurt any body

A steep approach is not the cause of a garbage landing, period. These clowns should not have jobs.

I would like to see that from the ground! I would sure have hated to be a passenger on that plane.!

The pilots are very lucky they didn't plant their aircraft...

THAT WAS A HARD LANDING. IF I WAS ON THE PLANE I WOULD HAVE SICK ALL OF THE PLACE. I WAS WOUNDERING WHAT WAS GOING ON IN THERE HEAD WHEN THE WARNING WAS TELLING THEM TO PULL UP?
