Landing the beast that is the Boeing B377 Stratocruiser at Santa Barbara following a 2.5 hour flight. Passengers had finished up a dinner of Chef's Salad ;) and were all strapped in for the landing.

After a long flight managing the engines myself during climb and cruise, I finally let (virtual) Flight Engineer "Larry" take care of the intercoolers, cowl flaps, etc for this approach and you'll hear him back there going through the motions verbally as we come in to land.

Runway was short and I came in a little too high - result was that my rate of descent was too fast. I had to get down quick in order to have enough runway to stop the machine from overshooting.

A bit of flare at the last moment before the wheels touched down helped to arrest the fast rate of descent. Touchdown still a little too rough for my liking, but at least there was none of that dreaded 'bounce'.

This add-on is the B377 Stratocruiser "Captain of the Ship" by A2A Simulations for Flight Simulator X.
