Landing = crash
Go Arround = one more chance.

I've done that before on fs2004 except my wing hit the ground before I had a chance to react.

Same thing here wheelright, on a good day I do just a little better than that.

SAVE ME JEBUS!!!!!(if anyone doesn't know, that's off "The Simpsons"). I do that all the time, except it is bad piloting and not crosswinds.

While I am downloading this short clip (always prefer it over strreaming) I am taking a guess that it is the Kai Tak Airport, and a Japan Air 747 with the extreme rudder action. 8O




EDIT watched it, yep I was right.... 8) but it wasn't crosswind that made it look like that. It is Kai Tak's unusual offset approach, which makes pilots to make a 45 degree turn while maintaining the glideslope not above 1000 feet over a city. Only the last left turn is because of the wind.
Dont point your plane where you brain hasnt been 2 minutes ago.

Outstanding videos Skipperdan!

Anyone else want to know what happened to the Harrier?
I have seen another video in which a H-3 Sea King had the same thing happen. It was hovering over the same spot for upwards of 15 to 20 minutes and it ended up blowing the air out from underneath it and crashed.
I feel for that pilot of the Harrier though... In the chute and slammed back into the plane, that had to hurt!

Hi cat1, reference the harrier crash this is a link to the official accident report and is quite an interesting read. According to this it was pilot error although he made the right decisions in trying to correct the problem a lot was learnt from this incident.

Circles, do you mean the thing about pointing your plane?

Its an old aviotion saying, means think before you act, think at least a few minutes in advance. If you expect to be handed off to the other frequency, tune it now in the standby radio, and when the controllor tell you to contact the other frequency, you have time to readback, and say goodbye, then just click, and that's it. Basically, that is what it means. :wink:

re: myheadspinsincircles,
for the Korean 747 landing at Kai Tak, the pilot was performing a side slip, it is an old technique used by pilots to slow down when they come too fast in the approach, in fact I performed one last night landing in China, XianYang, by doing the sideslip, as you all know you break the flow of air and the aircraft will slow down , but just dont land doing the slip as you will flip, wow im a poet and I just dont know it 8)
sorry :oops: :wink:
