No go to full power landings for this bird.....it's one chance, they forgot to mention the diaper installed in flight suite under modifications.
I think two diapers...just to be safe.
They dont use full power to land they may add power to correct for sink but not untill they are on the runway and go into reverse.
I believe Vincent was referring to a typical carrier landing, where the pilots always go to full power when they hit the deck, just in case they miss the wires and have to go around.
That is true only for jets, prop planes didn't have to do that. I have 150 carrier landings, mostly in the S2.
