Los Angeles - Phoenix / Boeing 747-4AA (N706ML) / IFR

This return flight to Phoenix was not nearly as smooth as the flight over to LAX, mainly because I was offered and accepted runway 26 at Sky Harbor right at the last minute, so I had to side-step to it by hand and, while the landing was acceptable, it was hard (about 700 fpm at touchdown, just above the threshold for a “hard” landing). Other than that, it was okay. It wasn't so long ago that I could barely hand-fly a 747 at all, so I'm improving.
