My impression was that a truly hard landing in the ATR would involve a giant bounce rather than a single solid thump...the touchdown didn’t look too terrible.

That last 500’ though....the guy saying “dagadagadagadagadaga” summed it up perfectly, that’s the noise my kids would make when they were toddlers before the did something monumentally dumb.

High? Nothing that a slip can't fix.

Had an IOE FO throw the mega dash into a full forward slip on short final as they were yet again high, and not lined up on the visual.

Total Nav/Com failure in the 1900 with hard IMC didn’t raise my heart rate nearly as much as that slip.

Offline pilot non rev in the front stayed on after the pax got off. Pretty sure he left finger imprints in the arm rests. That thing got sideways and fell. Like- I nailed rating power as soon as I realized what the FO did- and we still landed “fell”. The engines spooled right before we “landed” so it was a bit odd as the landing was pretty soft, the spoiler popped and then we went faster again.

If I ever get myself into a spot where I need to slip to the runway in a larger turbine airplane? We’re doing another tour of the airport and trying again. Not repeating that one.

Mine says something more like "I cut-the-potatoes-cut-the-potatoes-cut-the-potatoes".
