    eh.... nothin' you ca't walk away from.
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    Ditto.....any landing you can walk away from is a good land, even without wheels down as the LOT did this week.

    That looks like the same landing I just made in a Phillipines 747-200 at SEA a few nights ago on FS9...it was late and I totally blew the flare...that's why I keep 'crash detection' off

    Oh yea they flared a bit too late. Still I don't think it's that bad.

    Anyone found harder 747 landings besides the famous Hong Kong pondings
    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".
