The 767 gets me all the time. I think I was doomed from the start since my first landing in the thing was a squeaker. All downhill from there.We agree there. Even with 3000+ hrs on the 75/76 it catches me off guard at times (late/early engagement).
What are we getting at here? What airframe should first year folks start out on? I and plenty other folks went to the 75/76 at Brown and many other places and have yet to smash one up.So putting 1 yr guys in the 767 is having its expected toll at United and Delta. Yikes.

Was it the landing? or was said landing just the final straw? It's pretty hard to get fired from a union carrier, but i'd imagine the person was also on probation also.I have a friend that was fired after 1....just one leg out of training at ATI for a bad landing that broke something.
That's exactly right. The 757 nose will drop pretty quickly after spoiler deployment, while the 767 has a pitch up tendency. As someone that flies the 757 90% of the time, and considering I may have something like 10 actual landings in the 767 in the year and a half I've been here between all the relief and PM legs, it still catches me off guard. Even telling myself that on final my reflex to catch the nose kicks in but luckily quickly stops as soon as I feel it going the other way.Been 20+ yrs since I flew the B76/75 but I seem to remember after main gear touchdown and spoiler deployment, one had a tendency to pitch up while the other had a pitch down tendency.
