WOW! That's in remarkably good condition, must have landed nice and slowly. I see at least some flap was used. Without knowing what caused this I would say the pilot did an excellent job under difficult conditions and in really crappy terrain.

For some 1000 metres is ample to land a King Air for others not enough for a Jabbie at FAKR :roll:

Quite the opposite actually .... was fast, touched down very deep and ran off the end of the runway .... this after 2 go arounds.

See, now maybe its just me personally, but say I'm having a bad day or whatever and I'm not getting it right at FAKR, Lanseria is like 10nm away with a nice 3000m runway, I'd rather go and land safely there and regroup and either try again later on or come back another day.

For what it's worth... jabis are slippery and brakes tend to fail when hot. I find the best technique is
a low approach with a tad of power. Fly final at correct speed and stall on numbers. A high and glide
approach, especially at unknown (and short) runway, is not for me.....
