      Initial D style!!!

      I am wondering will this 100% manual control by the pilot or still fully auto or somewhere in between?? (I am guessing 100% manual control)



      BTW, this is the pilot...

      Care to bet she trained on gliders ? Only thing (being nitpicking) is she left it a bit late to straighten out but overall beautifully done and none of the wild antics you often see in such situations. That's why I wouldn't be surprised if she has a glider flying skill set. Gliders with their huge T-tails in comparison to their fuse profile need that very sideways approach in cross-wind landings, you're often flying by looking out the side window. Oh, and yes I would think that's entirely manual landing but I'm not a jet jockey so I couldn't be certain.
