The last time I rode in the cockpit of a Lufthansa Airbus 321 (earlier this week), the pilot told me he'd just done simulator practice on landing the plane after a complete failure of the fly-by-wire system. He said the plane can be landed using only rudders and elevator trim, but it's a very challenging exercise. Any Airbus pilots out there who can comment on how it's done?
