Is this a takeoff or landing. It looks like a landing to me but the bloke on the website didnt know what it was doing.

To avoid the frustration of misfortune,
That, in this world, is happiness.

They did? wow! Come on, even if a fighter tried to lose against the Defiant it would probably win! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif Unless it attacked it from above and behind, thinking it was a Hurricane.
