In this picture you can see the completion of our third turn, from basic to our final approach, so we call, as the tower has requested: "Romeo Juliet Uniform is on final", so the guys down at the airport say "Romeo Juliet Uniform, landing authorised, please leave the runway via taxiway Charlie". In this picture you can appreciate eight parallel white stripes, indicating by OACI standards that this is a 30 m wide runway. You can also see the two bold white stripes ahead, quite distinct from any other markings. Those are the "landing stripes" that indicate where you should touch down. The closer to those two stripes, the better.
And now, completing our turn from basic to final approach.
Now we are hovering over the runway, aiming at the landing marks. The plane is levelled and right along the central axis, albeit with a certain pressure on the rudders to the left by cause of the wind: The runway is zero five and the wind comes from four five, so there is a slight deviation. Normally this would matter very little, but since a speed of ten knots is a moderate one, the correction becomes necessary.
Hovering over runway zero five, just seconds before touchdown.
