No, this is not insult. It is reality supported by trivial mathematica - there is 0.33 seconds between frames. When You fly 160 kts on approach, between 2 frames You will travel 27 meters. And this distance is too much in case of any mistake or error. You have not any chance for proper reactions to recover.

I like Your idea about short flight from EHAM to EDDF. But I'm not sure with my return from my trip on New Zeland. Now, I'm on the way from SCIP to TNCM, tomorow try fly from TNCM to EHAM or direct to EDDF. For better reality I'm starting my FG session, where previous session ended.

I found very nice blog about A380 landing :
https://captaindave.aero/2014/03/07/fly ... -stopping/
As You can see, the minimum braking distance with brake mode Lo is 1650 meters for 344t LW. With brake mode RTO will be significantly shorter. Landing speed is not 160 kts as You stated somewhere in Your post, but 132, but in Paro not aplicable, we should use 160 kts, with operating empty weight 280 tons (https://www.flightglobal.com/news/artic ... 80-205274/)+ minimum FOB 10 tons, there is still good chance to successfully land on 2000 meters long runway.
