They call it 'the bounce':

And this must be the opposite way to land, quite amazing:

That microphone made my ears bleed.

That was a close call. I'd hate to have a landing like that committed to video for eternity.

Wonder how long it took the crew to clean their underwear after that one?

That first one is embarrassing eh?

I have tried to do the second one in many many p;lanes ion the game and cannot manage it unless I cheat and write a script for the brake button that pulses it on and off rapidly. Second one was cool.

I think the insurance company is going to make sure that pilot will be confined to flying B-17s on FS2004 after that!

At least he kept his head and got it down safely, after a bounce like that it could have been splat.

Pilot's heart had to skip a beat right there. He powered up just right, though. I personally would have gone around for another landing, but I'm guessing the pilot has experienced this before.
