definition "recon"

crosscheck9 Guest

It's currently 3:00AM, and I'm going to be heading to the airport in about 2 hours. I was just watching a few airbus video clips, and at landing, the GPWS warning calls out Recon below 10 ft. Does that mean it's asking the pilot to flare, or what? Thank you. I'll let you know how my flight goes. Happy flying.

Never mind, I figured out what the word means. The word is actually "retard" and it's asking the pilots to idle thrust and flare. Thanks

Imagine what the passenger in the Jump seat would think when the planes shouts " retard," to the pilot. 😂
