I’ve seen video of a lot of crash landings and a lot of so-so landings with partial or no landing gear deployed. The latest, in Warsaw, Poland, this week, is being reported as a crash landing because, I suppose, because the plane’s landing gear could not be lowered. But “crash” doesn’t strike me as the correct adjective here. I’ve seen, and experienced, worse landings when everything was functioning normally. My hat’s off to the pilot who pulled off this perfect landing without a single injury on board.
