This purposely prolonged flare is called aerodynamic braking, they let oncoming airflow hit the giant delta wing to slow her down nice and gently, without using the brakes and deploying the parachute. The Vulcan sure does look extra special when doing this, almost like a bird of prey coming in to land.
