Fire Tenders where in assistance an Slowly brought the aircraft to the stand.
The traffic at the old airport road was stopped while this took place.
Cros as scene in this picture the landing gear doors did not lock back up!
The police stop all traffic from entering the old airport road because of this.
A garda told me and a nother spotter that they were afraid it might over shoot. but luckly this did not happen!
After landing Rwy 16 was in use!
i would think the the pilot tried to land as smoothly as possible in order to avoid the landing gear doors hitting the runway. doyler can probably confirm how much of the runway the pilot used in landing the 320
the last thing you want ,apart from overshooting the end of the runway, is shards of metal , not sure if the A320 doors are all metal or a combination of composit material and metal, flying everywhere and possibly causing tyres to burst or damaging the engines.
