Re: [theplummeter] How does Mike Mullins get his King Air on the ground so quickly?

Do you reverse the props and add power to a turbine to get them to drop faster or do you just bring the engines to idle and that automatically flattens the prop angle causing more drag which makes you descend faster?

Are you pulling negative g's on the descent? Why do you say most airline passengers wouldn't care much for the descent? Is it the pitch of the descent, the view out the window, the negative g's?

Does a pilot spiral the plane down or follow a glide path?

What kind of pitch/bank angles are they using?
