This seems weird, but it also seems to work. According to The Aviationist, this Polish Sukhoi Su-22 strike aircraft was filmed deploying a drogue braking parachute in the air, before touching down, as a deliberate maneuver to slow down faster when landing on a very short or damaged runway. It apparently allows the aircraft to stop within about 1,000 feet. The pilot appears to retain full control in the air, despite the additional drag.
That's all very well . . . but if the chute doesn't deploy properly, and the aircraft is committed to a landing without enough room on the runway to come to a halt by conventional means, the pilot had better have one hand on the ejection seat handle!
EDITED TO ADD: My memories of the Su-22 are of several of them dropping large quantities of bombs near my positions during several military operations in Angola during the 1980's. Fortunately, all of them missed me . . . but it's still not my favorite aircraft.
