[font size="1" color="#FF0000"]LAST EDITED ON Dec-29-01 AT 11:20PM (EDT)[/font][p]I just got 1.2 hours in FS2K2 flying the Piper Tomahawk from columbus ohio to the north end of the state to a little airport just off the coast of Lake Erie. Friggin' 3rd party aircraft..fly over the field, turn downwind, turn base and add 1st notch of flaps, turn final and last notch of flaps, a bit high and I can make the runway so I cut the engine and glide in. Right on the centerline..friggin perfect! Flare just right and hold to bleed off airspeed and then !!#$@!#$%##$^#@#$!$! sparks and smoke..I'm like WTF?? Landing gear is fixed so it was down...I replay the video of the last 60 seconds and the touch down should have been sooooo sweet...but instead the stupid main gear wheels sunk into ground resulting in what the game considered to be a crash. I could have cried. I flew the whole route VRF using only my Detroit Sectional and everything went perfect.
aaarrggghhh...Man, that should have been a perfect landing with a nice taxi to the tie down. But instead my dreams of flying great are dashed thanx to stupid 3rd party aircraft!!!
Oh well. It was a free plane. But #####!
You ever lose a sweet flight like this?? Share your pain..
