is it just me, or do 738's have a habit in breaking in two around row 8?

Very little known fact: The 738 was intended as a Navy plane, the folding of the fuselage at row 8 would make it easier to park a number of aircraft tightly on a carrier deck.

You had that tour guide, too? What a coincidence.

The flaps up landing is a practice that is generally frowned upon, for obvious reasons.

Then why is such a maneuver part of most type rating checkrides?

C'mon flyboy. Flaps up landing = more wear and tear on the brakes, faster touchdown speed, longer roll out, thus it is generally frowned upon.

The point you (not surprisingly) missed is that landing flaps up is no excuse to end up with the airplane in two pieces.

Would it not generally as Verbal said be frowned upon to do so on a medium-short sized runway for a 737-800 landing on a wet runway?

Something else is probably on the go here.

Possible the PNF was following his landing flow and selected flaps up not realizing they were going off?

Would it be a possible idea to go flaps up to get weight on the wheels? Never heard of that but just a thought.

TR's deployed, and I see some pictures show spoilers up on left wing not on right?
