[DONE. Thanks]

Come on - "training" for something and then actually doing it are two entirely different scenarios. If all it took was training then we wouldn't have any air crashes. You can't underestimate piloting skill. And the landing was so smooth! I didn't even see a single spark!

Actually this would have been remarkable had the pilots NOT performed successfully: around the world all commercial pilots are thoroughly trained for such landings.

Here's a link to a good photo with relevant info pertaining to the aircraft:
