I say that's enough navel gazing now guys. Too much of this and we'll all
crash into sticky-up bits of ground.

Okay, but I get the final word......

Personally I get a big kick out of reading replies from some of you more
experienced simmers, especially those of you that are able to compare RL
situations with sim situations. I also feel very fortunate to be sharing
space with former airline pilots, navy pilots, army pilots and other pilots
that have several thousand hours of flighttime and a wealth of knowledge
and are willing to share it all.

So there! ;-)

Never actually added power during the flare, but occasionally raise the
flaps to get the aircraft to settle that last 2 or 3 feet!
