the Beaufighters trials of the Supermarine companys anti-Gravity device , used in the Spitfire , were successfully run bringing the urgent need for upscaled production

That runway can be found under static ships objects in the fmb. There is also a concrete one.

Now for caption:

old Mag-Lev technology - reduce the planes weight by removing the landing gear...unfortunately the subsequent weight penalty with the addition of enough 12v batteries to power the system caused it to be dropped entirely. This testbed did not survive.

This happened to me too....
I knew a wheel was missing when I went in for the landing. So I thought: "Let's try this, and lean a bit on the right wheel, untill speed gets too low, then left wing will hit the ground...."

Well, I thought I was doing wel, keeping the craft horizontal.... I was feeling happy and proud 'bout this kind of handling-skill and keeping it that way.... even when the speed went further down.... down ... down.... eeehhhhhh.... Well now, what's this then? No left wing dropping ???

I think you should send that in to 1C as a bona fide bug!

The British did trials with invisible gear and engines back in those days. As they could not be seen, they would make the aircraft lighter so more ammo could be taken..

Tests failed and the project was cancelled. Almost all evidence was lost..
