Notes:

Exciting approach. We were 35 miles out, 15000 feet, Captain decided to do a engine failure test and try reaching TFN with engines on idle. This pic shows 1500 feet above the rwy, 15 down angle and 0% torque. The landing was perfect. Great Binter Pilots!! Watch the next photo in the sequence HERE or watch the whole sequence HERE

Stunning photo Gabe, couldn't imagine looking out the window at that.

Been there done that. No spoilers on the ATR just props at 100% rpm does the trick. To add a bit of flair, bleed that speed right down to 100KIAS if you wish. I've always said on an ATR if you can see the runway you can land on it. Cheerie on top, make a short field landing and watch her stop in 500m. DONE THAT!!!!!

I want to know if the spoilers were up? The airspeed is pretty slow (only 135) at a steep angle. I'm guessing full flaps, spoilers out, and a nice steady approach. You can do this in a simulator with several jets without a problem, it just takes practice.
