Does anyone know if there is a way to prevent the AI planes from disappearing after they have landed? Thanks! jo

Appeal to Oleg in ORR.

Thanks seafireliv! I shall appeal. Was hoping it was simply a setting I hadn't found. jo

They used to hang about for a much longer time after landing, but the AI pilots were dim and kept taxiing into each other. Some folk were unhappy and said so, and it was changed to what we have now - they land, taxi, wait a couple of secs and voom! disappear before the next guy turns up.
This made far more people unhappy than the original collisions, but nothing has been done about it despite many pleas.
IMHO, both situations are ludicrous. You try to get your squad mates or the bombers you were escorting home but when you arrive it resembles the Marie Celeste on land.
I think that all we can hope for is something better in BoB, in a couple of years time.
Cheers!

It's best to chew it up and live with it.

AI landing is perhaps FB's weakest point, in terms of design/idea. Every time you end a mission, escorts in particular it's the neverending choir of:

"Two, request permission to land"
"Three, request permission to land"
"Two, you are cleared to land"
"Four, request permission to land"
"Three, there's traffic on the runway, go around"
"Roger, three going around"
"Four, there's traffic on the runway, go around"
"Going around"

You're lucky if it's only you and three other guys, when I fly with 7 others + 8 bombers I just land on the taxiway and try to hide my face from the other parents in the carpark.
