not a very good landing there
too tough
Actually, this landing is not a bad one. While it may be flared a bit too much, it is almost in the middle of the touchdown zone.
Landing seems ok but Lots of burnt rubber indicates- high approach speed I guess
Where did this occur?
Jean Calmes
it looks like the landing gears are wrongly positioned at 90 degrees off the path ! How is this possible for an expert in synchronization?
darren clare
No spoiler landing, presumably is why it was a little heavy?
Locked breaks IMO
Dick Ware
Its 'ops'! flight not UPS!!!
I see 8 responses and most are incorrect. It is not a very good landing. It is short and prior to the touchdown zone. The brakes are not locked up. The approach speed was probably low hence the high attitude and early touchdown. Spoilers will be coming up very shortly. No idea about what "90 degrees off path" means.
I support eprn1n2
Dwight Hartje
My favorite landing shot I've seen!
Although this pic is nice, I agree with Eprn1n2 about the landing specifications...
That's not a landing. That's a burnout on takeoff.
James Dubick
UPS and Fedex have a history of landing incidents with MD-11 aircraft. A company in White Plains (I can't recall the name but something like flight systems inc.) has been contracted to develop an improved angle of attack system for this aircraft. My brother flew them for Delta back in the 90s and remarked to me that it was not a fun airplane to land.
Alden Sewell
Delta never had any Md- 11s , we had about 5 DC-10s leased while awiating delayed delivery of our L-1011s Acrft.Insp. ( Ret,)
It's a great photo & you got your package, move on....
James Dubick
Yes Delta had MD-11s. They were based out of Portland and did the North Pacific routes.
A moment well captured!
I agree with Jean Calmes - the wheels on the right (starboard) main undercarriage appear to be aligned at 90 degrees to the direction of travel - maybe the port side is or is not. Such an unfortunate set-up would certainly produce a lot of smoke! Actually, the starboard smoke appears to be emanating from the rear wheel of the three-wheel set. This wheel would touch ground first and if 90 degrees out of alignment would generate lots of smoke.
If management sees a photograph of a poor landing, would the pilot be reprimanded? Or would management already know because of the flight data and documentation?
John McArthur
I think must have something to do with the reason almost all of my UPS deliveries arrive damaged!
If the landing gear are oriented 90 degrees from the direction of travel, that would mean that the plane was flying completely sideways and the landing gear would collapse under the intense lateral stresses. It may be possible that the crew had to crab the landing, which would likely produce more tire smoke, but 90 degrees is absolutely impossible.
Nice Trap, GO NAVY. Talk about using all the tarmac! Must be a short runway. Thankfully there's no wind. Used to love watching the freighters leaving DEN early in the mornings when I was prestarting the ground equipment and enjoying a coffee and a smoke! I liked the FEDEX pilots the best,, it was like my very own airshow every morning! I would park my tug at the end of the horse shoe at the end of terminal B and just enjoy ! :)

Hence the meaning of a " Controlled Crash"?

This is a hard but A-OK landing. Runways is not short, it's about 10000ft long (4km almost) - and was a certified runway for the spaceshuttle. My shot looks spectacular but nothing dangerous.
Robert Bell
New robber all around please!
john fusco
first of all too early,fast,overloaded.fed ex and ups overload these planes,he or she did the best she could.very hard to land these planes as well
Davon Grant
Lol it looks like if it made a sharp 90 degree angle n pop a wheelie. BOss
Jesse Carroll
ANY landing you can walk away from, is a good one!
Keith Taylor
Must have a teenager driving her.
William Price
Being a pilot, I agree with Jesse, Any Landing You Can Walk Away From Is A Good Landing.
Love some of the other comments, like CB Hardy's. He's a thinker.
......and you thought you were hard on your brakes.
Jon Arvik
The wheels are fine; look at the full-screen image and expand it as wide as you can. It's an optical illusion that at first glance does indeed look like the wheel trucks are off by 90 degrees.
Tommy Ding
It seems a very heavy landing... Maybe the gears can be damaged...
Buenisima captura
Drag racing DC-10 What a concept...Top Fuel Funny Plane : )
Firm plant! Nailed it. Grnd Ops will be scraping rubber off 14L-32R for days.
expensive smoke.
Brandon Moton
So this is way packages arrive late!
john fusco
thanks,for all ,this was one lomg flight,but we got it finished,wet pants and all...lol
David Browett
Nothing wrong with the landing it landed didnt it?
Wow, so many of the comments are so critical. How about "Great photo"?
Tail strike - worst I've ever seen!
Jesse Carroll
If you can walk away, good landing!
C.W. Reed
A good landing is one that you can walk away from, AND re-use the airplane again!
John Barrer
what do you mean landing, that's what you call a UPS short field takeoff!
John McCabe
"I see my order of 1,255 anvils just arrived!"
Ed Hill
Very nice photo of landing!
Jonah Crosby
Josh Edgar
this is why your stuff arrives broken
Mike MacDonald
Vulcansunray, I agree, port and starboard wheelsets seem to be disproportionately different in both size and shape!
However, the photographer says it was not an unusual landing???????
Diane: this is Cologne-Bonn (CGN)
Jim Costello
Sorry just couldn't hold that in much longer!
donald moore
Mike Gallagher
Took that last right turn a little tight....Just sayin.
smokeshow !
Bob Yurek
The comments by all the "professional pilots" on this photo are hilarious. 90 degree landing gear position? WTF?, spoilers not extended, "middle of the landing zone" and so on and so on. And it's not a "triple seven". Bitch needs to be planted.
Chris Croft
Another clear example of why FedEx is "Varsity" and UPS "JV"
Full disclosure, I work for FedEx
Rough landing
