...when you have no engine

no aileron control

and no elevator control

difficult, but not impossible http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

The irony being of course that I can't actually land an undamaged plane to save my life http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

First hit in the fuselage 99% takes out all controls at once. You get used to it... I hope... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

That's OK, no-one can land the Mossie, its undercart is made from damp cardboard http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

It's possible to land the mossie, just come in at higher speed, and do a two point.
