Classic porpoise. Seen it many times with student pilots. I'm not familiar with the systems on that aircraft. I'm sure that this was an experienced pilot with a flight control problem.

I'll politely disagree. Looks to me like the result of poor training.

It's been said MANY many times, for both full-size and RC, that the objective isn't to put a plane onto a runway -- it's to hold it a couple feet off the runway as long as possible -- and eventually the plane will land itself beautifully. Piece o' cake when you 'approach' it this way.

I'm guessing that this pilot missed school the day that lesson was taught.

Exactly what I was thinking. I've heard that before, too.

Apparently he was never taught to go around when something like that happens...
