An Excerpt from The Pragmatic Programmer by Andrew Hunt and David Thomas

The Landing Pilot is the Non-Handling Pilot until the "decision altitude"
call, when the Handling Non-Landing Pilot hands the handling to the
Non-Handling Landing Pilot, unless the latter calls "go-around," in which
case the Handling Non-Landing Pilot continues handling and the
Non-Handling Landing Pilot continues non-handling until the next call of
"land" or "go-around" as appropriate.  In view of the recent confusions
over these rules, it was deemed necessary to restate them clearly"
	-- British Airways memorandum, quoted in Pilot Magazine, December 1996
