With guest commentary by the Russian version of Bitchin' Betty.

Looks like a classic case of coming in too high, leading to touchdown too far down the runway and running out of tarmac. ATC or LSO as much at fault as the pilots; should have been waved off or made a touch and go to try again.

I'd actually call that a decent job given the conditions. To a normal person that might look like a bright sunny clear day, but he's fighting a pretty nasty cross-wind, a head-wind that seems to come and go, and hit at least one updraft microburst. Given at 600 pounds fuel he'd have shot his load to vapor if he throttled up to make another pass, I'd not be the least surprised if that was the last of MANY attempts to get it down.

I know I sure as hell wouldn't want to try and bring it down dead-stick in those conditions (watch the AoA readouts ping-pong all over the damned place) which if he had aborted to try again, would most likely have been the next step.

The weather might have looked nice, but they were being tossed around like a rag doll.

Any landing you can walk away from is a good one, right?
