Holding short of 34R today in KSLC I witnessed the worst commercial airline landing I've ever seen. A Skywest commuter plane develops an extremely high sink rate in the flare...hits HARD!!!...(can't believe damage wasn't done...no wait...can't believe they didn't crash)...bounces 20' in the air....hits HARD a second time....bounces 20' in the air and begins to porpoise at 20' to 30' for about 1000' down the runway....touches down....bounces again!....this time 10' above the runway and porpoises some more before finally putting the wheels down to stay for good on the fourth attempt....and only 5000' down the runway.

I'm embarrassed as a professional pilot that the paying public had to endure that performance...and under the banner of my employer.

Go Around....for cripes sakes...and try it again. Unbelievable.

Is the whole story to this "bad" landing that it was just bad judgement on the pilots part or is it conceivable that there was some kind of malfunction or wind shear in the area?

However, I'm sure it was as you say, pilot error, based on ALL your years of experience, thousands of hours, and sound judgement in a CRJ...

Don't shoot the messenger guys, I just copied it from Jetcareers. It was written by a Delta 767 pilot.

The title of his post was "SkyWest landings?" Yours was "Skywest near-Crash in SLC!"

Yeah sounds like you had a bad landing there dude! Are all the pilots at your company that bad? Just remember if you land one of those Polar 74 Classics that hard you probably will do some damage. You Scab!

Besides 747's can autoland!
Yeah the classics will autoland in the sim. But those wore out P-10 panels usualy don't do to good once you get to flare mode. But you already know all about flying a classic don't you! What a jerk. This "story" he's talking about was probably one of his own landings.

I've seen some of skywest's landings and boy they were not pretty. That CRJ and EMB120 must be pretty tough to land? or is it the skill levels of their pilots?

guppykiller,

Some people know how to flame. 410dude does it like a champion, for example. You however, suck at it. That was the most retarded thing I've ever read.

I saw an E-170 in IAH that had a horrible cross-wind landing then blew a couple of mains. I think it's the skill level of those darn E-170 pilots. It was probably E-170 Guppykiller's leg on that one because the landing really sucked!!

Wow, talk about ignorant comments.

I've seen 757s (more than one) land so hard I thought the gear was going to punch though the wings. I guess that means all their pilots suck.

The EMB 120 isn't easy to land, I can't comment on the CRJ, however, I've witnessed far more pretty landings of SkyWest Brasilias than ugly ones, some off of difficult approaches like a circling approach at Inyokern. So, to answer your second question (which shouldn't be dignified with an answer), no, it's not the skill level.
