Not sure why they felt the need to take the first highspeed on a possibly slick runway when twy B2 is up ahead. Our FOQA/ASAP data has been showing a lot of unstable approachs recently mostly caused by folks getting cleared for visual approachs who then try to join final right at or inside the marker. I don't understand what the rush is....why be a hero, give yourself a nice long final. Same with this, why grab the first highspeed unlless you have someone bearing down on you on short fianl.
