Hey, I've done that with my trainers. He's a piker, though; only 3 touch downs with one approach. I've done five and saw another guy get 6.

Almost wrecked it? No, although not the most graceful, that was a typical early student landing. It seems like there was a bit of a crosswind as well, looking at the crab angle of the go-around, which would have made it more difficult for the student.

You would be amazed what some student, and some licensed pilot, landings look like!
Can I retire now?

That go around was sketchy... look at the rudder... it looks like whoever it was freaked out and input a bunch of left rudder for some reason.

That's called a porpise (as in a dolphin jumping). The nose touches first, the plane pivots around the nose until the mains touch, this results in increased angle of attack and increased lift, this causes the plane to go airborne again. The pilot tries to keep it on the ground and forces the nose back down, whole sequence repeats itself. It keeps getting worse the longer it progresses.

The textbook answer is a go-around. If the landing MUST be made (i.e. a one way in no go-around airfield... there are several in Canada) the nose must be held up to arrest the porpise and to allow speed to bleed off... then you can allow the plane to settle back onto the ground.

In a large airplane that can cause structural damage. In an RC airplane it looks stupid. In any airplane it can cause a crash.

Yeah... once again I'm a dork.
