Actually, I think you're right about this. After looking at the video again, that does not look like the type of 'normal' fire you'd see. It's almost like what you'd see during the lighting of a match, just on a bigger scale. I don't think it's the centerline now..

But the fire is definitely stronger when the gear is on the centerline paint.

In the case of the Airbus, I would speculate that there was no attempt to shut down the engines on short final.


also in teh part 121 world, price of parts is MUCH lower than price of a life of a passenger, on a prop airplane, you would also get more damages on prop strike that wont happen here, unless the nose gear had collapsed and even then

true, looks like the paint creates a higher friction !

Hi all,

Just wondering is there an audio clip available from the time of the incident?

Thanks,

Daryl

If these are off-topic my apologies, I though you guys would enjoy them.

Here are some pics:
