                    PART IV - EMERGENCY HANDLING

       (iv)  Make a powered approach at the normal speed.
             On touch-down set H.P. cock OFF and maintain a
             moderate nose-up attitude.

        (v)  Trim the tailplane to give full nose-up trim and as
             the speed falls below 100 knots maintain a high
             nose-up attitude without actually touching the tail
             cone on the ground.
(vi) Lower the nose on to the runway at 80-90 knots and 96 (a) (vi) use the brakes gently to keep straight. Page 95 ---------------------------------------------------------------- (b) Nosewheel and one main wheel locked down If all attempts to lower the undercarriage satisfactorily fail and only the nosewheel and one main wheel come down, make a normal approach and landing; after touch- down hold the wings level for as long as possible by use of the ailerons. When aileron is applied and when the wing finally drops, the aircraft will swing in the direction of the unlocked wheel; this should be counteracted as much as possible by opposite brake. Experience has shown that the distance from the landing path to the point of rest averages approximately 250 yards, varying from 100 yards (min.) to 400 yards (max.) A runway should be chosen which has an area about 400 yards wide available in the direction of the anticipated swing. (c) Belly landing If it is necessary to land with the undercarriage retracted, make a normal approach and fly the aircraft gently on to the runway at the normal speed. 97. Landing with a burst tyre No special difficulty is encountered when landing with a burst tyre(s), directional control and braking being adequate. 98. Flapless landing A very long shallow powered approach should be made and the threshold crossed at the normal speed. Even
