Gee, that is a pretty wide spectrum. Most of the time I am "Spam in a can" but I enjoy myself and learn quite a bit. Anybody who thinks they are an "ace" or a great pilot on the basis of playing with a plastic stick in front of a screen online seriously needs counseling. The Air Force had recently found that incoming novices to flight training schools were significantly better prepared for basic training if they had rigorously practiced flying with the more detailed private plane and airliner simulators, and were thoroughly familiar with correct procedures.

I think 6 downded FW 190s excuse a bad landing once in a while...

IRL I have 100% landing success. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

In IL2 it's a different matter due to enemy action.

Landing under fire tends to demand faster, steeper approaches.

Landing with battle damage can sometimes be impossible. Often one has to accept the old adage that any landing you can walk away from is a good one.

IMHO, Landing in this game is quite routine and not difficult with practice. I will try to land 100% of the time if I am allowed to. Meaning if I don't think I can make it back to base, I will fight to the death. If I feel I can escape the fight, I will attempt to land.

What I do truly enjoy is attempting to land with major damage. The other day, I landed with only Ailerons and several large holes in my wings. That landing probably only has a 1 in 10 success rate for me, so it felt really good. Sure, I could have bailed, but whats the fun in that?

Last time I landed wheels down and taxied to the hangar the aircrew chief gave me a bottle of champagne so he must've won a bet - but the erks mumbled about having to put all the oleo struts and wheels back on the shelves. One cynical customer even mentioned 'just leaving it all out ready for next time' , but he was impolitely warned about bad luck - I reckon he had a point though.....

Yes coming in with damage, or being followed to airfield, would excuse a landing that you can walk away from, or be carried away from http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Unless my bird is in really bad shape, I can put it on the ground in one piece all the time. If it's shot up, missing pieces, or engine has quit, then it might be a decent wheels down landing or might be a belly landing or a ditching in the water.

Now when it comes to carrier traps, it's a roll of the dice. Landing on the big carriers is usually doable, but putting the Corsair down on an escort carrier often results in an inadvertent ditching, usually because I caught one of the last two arresting cables and they "stretch" to the point that my bird goes over the bow of the deck and I get flipped into the water.
