(Reuters)   Russia grounds Tatarstan Airlines until it proves that its pilots got their licenses from somewhere other than a box of Captain Crunchovich and know the difference between "descent for landing" and "nosedive"   (reuters.com) divider line 26

the crew had plenty of experience but the lead pilot had never before been in a position in which he had to make a second landing attempt during an actual flight.

I'd say he nailed that landing on the 2nd try.

Well, it landed, didn't it?

It's not like you can fail to land, can you?

Now they'll never get to see Montana.

I think a landing is considered to be a failure if you leave it in a baggie.

Abe Vigoda's Ghost: the crew had plenty of experience but the lead pilot had never before been in a position in which he had to make a second landing attempt during an actual flight.

You might say that he and everyone ended up having a stake in landing Tatarstan.

You have to push the buttons marked Такеофф, летать and земля. In that order!

On the ground is on the ground.

Does this mean there is now no way to fly into Elbonia?

George Carlin -- About this time, they tell you you'll be landing shortly. That sound to you like we're gonna miss the runway. Final approach is not very promising either, is it? Final is not a good word to be using on an airplane. Sometimes, the pilot will get on and he'll say, "We'll be on the ground in 15 minutes." Well, that's a little vague, isn't it?

Something about the pilot not being able to count to potato.

"Potato" translates to "Vodka"in Russian.

This being Europe, they probably got their licenses from a Kinder egg

FTA: "They have said the plane crashed after the pilot pushed the steering column into a position that pitched it into a nosedive in an attempt to prepare for landing after an initial approach was aborted."

Granted I only fly 172s, but I'm pretty sure that's not how you do a Go Around in a 737...
