<Baron doing a 1 point landing>

My initial reaction, too; but I think you'll find it was taking-off -- look at the flap setting! And I guess that it is an optical illusion regarding the nosewheel...

I disagree. That is a landing.
Generally we do not use flap for take-off in a Baron.

B*gger off, you old curmudgeonly shutter-bug! I know I'm slow on the uptake... :D :P

(Anyway, what's nine months; but a flutter of an eyelid in the grand scheme of things...???) :twisted:
