I'm having all kinds of difficulty in landing either the Beaufighter or the B-25 on an airstrip. I have no problem landing fighters on airfields or carriers; but I just seem to plant the Beaufighter or B-25 into the ground. Any advice on landing speed and/or other hints to keep my nose-up with a lower rate of descent to keep from tearing-up my plane will be appreciated.

go for a long aproach, not like i do in a fighter, drop down from 90 degrees with engine off.

Long aproach, speed at about 180, full flaps, engine between zero and 25%, once on ground, u can on the B25 use break as soon as u touch ground.

Approach should be fairly flat, about 100mph (160km/h) at about 20-25% throttle with full flaps, gear and a fair dab of nose up trim so you don't have to fight with the stick all the way down.

Geez, the '25 is about the only thing I can get down without tearing up. Tully & Fritzofn are right, slow & flat is the way to go. I tend to bounce or slam the fighters http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif. I've only managed 2 carrier traps and slammed the plane down both times trashing the gear, prop, and engine.

Drop down from 90 deg with power off?

What the heck are you flying...or taking?
