Touchdown On safe main gear first.
Fly a normal approach to touchdown.
After landing, accomplish the following:
Power levers (runway assured) IDLE.
Condition levers FUEL CUTOFF.
Fire pull handle Pull.
Master switch OFF.
Landing With Flat Tire(s). If aware that a main
gear tire(s) is flat, a landing close to the edge of
the runway opposite the flat tire will help avoid
veering off the runway. If the nose wheel tire is
flat, use minimum braking.
9-25. LANDING WITH INOPERATIVE WING FLAPS
characteristics when landing with the wing flaps up. The
approach angle will be shallow and the touchdown
speed will be higher resulting in a longer landing roll.
9-26. CRACKED WINDSHIELD.
External Crack. If an external windshield crack
is noted, no action is required in flight.
Heating elements may be inoperative in
areas of crack.
Internal Crack. If an internal crack occurs,
perform the following:
Descend to below 25,000 feet.
differential to 4 PSI or less within 10
9-27. CRACKED CABIN WINDOW.
If a crack in a single ply of the external cabin
Proceed as follows.
Oxygen As required.
Cabin pressurization Depressurize.
Descend As required.
If both plys of the external cabin window
have developed cracks, the aircraft shall
not be flown, once landed, without proper
ferry flight authorization.
If a decision to ditch is made, immediately alert all
crewmembers to prepare for ditching. Plan the
approach into the wind if the wind is high and the seas
are heavy. If the swells are heavy but the wind is light,
land parallel to the swells. Set up a minimum rate
descent (power on or off, as the situation dictates,
airspeed 110-120 KIAS). Do not try to flare as in a
normal landing, as it is very difficult to judge altitude
over water, particularly in a slick sea. Leveling off too
high may cause a nose low "drop in," while having the
tail too low on impact may result in the aircraft pitching
forward and "digging in." Expect more than one impact
shock and several skips before the final hard shock.
There may be nothing but spray visible for several
seconds while the aircraft is decelerating. To prevent
cartwheeling, it is important that the wings be level when
the aircraft hits the water. After the aircraft is at rest,
supervise evacuation of passengers and exit the aircraft
as quickly as possible. In a planned ditching, the life raft
and first-aid kits should be secured close to the cabin
emergency hatch for easy access when evacuating;
however, do not remove the raft from its carrying case
inside the aircraft. After exiting the aircraft, keep the
raft away from any damaged surfaces which might tear
or puncture the fabric. The length of time that the
aircraft will float depends on the fuel level and the
extent of aircraft damage caused by the ditching. Refer
to figure 9-3 for body positions during ditching. Figure
9-4 shows wind swell information. Perform the following
