Looks like the passengers in the rear was in for quite some ride. :shock:

Mighty powerful rudder on the A380 and slight correction needed to align plane immediately prior to maingear contact with tarmac was massively exceeded. Looks very untidy and excessive use of rudder. Trust it was the second officer not the captain. If so, captain must have gritted his teeth and ensured undercarriage was inspected before next venturing aloft. Testament to ruggedness of A380 gear assembly design as lesser aircraft might not have withstood this treatment :shock:
