USAF C-17 dirt landing, Afghanistan.

This will never not be cool.
You can see how the C-17 pilot barely flares the aircraft for landing. This transfers a lot of the aircraft’s kinetic energy straight to the ground, instead of foreword. This technique, albeit uncomfortable. shortens landing distance drastically.
I’ve heard Navy pilots find themselves using this technique as well when they are stationed at land bases, but that’s because they’re used to the no-flare landing that’s required to catch an arrestor cable.
Navy pilots; they like to bang ‘em on!
