Landing at JFK
In the Cabin
I was very relaxed and was very happily chatting to the stewardess about things, I looked out of the window and saw the Air traffic control tower at JFK…..While we where chatting I could still feel the sinking feeling but now it was much slower and gentler than before as we continued to chat I briefly looked out of the window and saw a long thin green strip of grass with long thin strip of black tarmac in front of it.
The ground was rapidly getting closer and closer then I felt a slight bump followed by a slightly harder and bigger thud, We had landed but it didn’t feel like we had landed as it was so so so smooth.
On the Ryan Air 737-200 it was violent compared to Concorde’s landing and I had to hold on for dear life on Ryan Air but on Concorde no way ……. It was as smooth as glass and very gentle
