No, this is not a story about Skippy the Kangeroo for those of you in Australia! But, during the past week or so, I have occasionally experienced that an aircraft will jump or "skip" while getting into position on the runway that ATC directs me to. Might this be due to a combination of lowered flaps and speed while positioning? Thanks for any suggestions.

Sorry, maybe I need to learn how to post images instead! Let's see if I get it right this time.

does it show normal motion before the "skip", or does it hang up (stop) moving prior to the skip???

And is BODO still a party town???

The aircraft motion appears perfectly normal before suddenly has a little "hiccup". No hang up...
And, actually, I live in Tromso which is a town even more renown for its social life! (I'm originally from Minneapolis though.)

Ah Minneapolis huh, I went for my undergrad to Minnesota state, Mankato. Minneapolis isn't too bad, but i hate the cold so I moved to San diego for my masters .
I know there are a lot of northern european descent people in Minnesota. What took you all the way to norway?

You went to Mankato? That's quite a coincidence. And I can certainly understand how you felt that the cold got to be too much at times. I did the opposite, however, and moved to Norway after completing my BA in Scandinavian Area Studies in Minnepolis. My family is part Norwegian - just as many are in Minnesota. Now I'm living in a small town 500 miles North of the Arctic Circle.
