Well the landing style of the J8A seems comparable to the landing of a golfball from a well hit 9 Iron onto the green.

I have to fly 'Wonder woman' style to get anywhere with the damn thing.

I bet a bunch of Finland AF pilots panicked from frear of open spaces when they were re-equipped with the 109, if any survived that is.


Anyone have any tips on landing the damn thing without shaking up my expensive 'liberated' French champagne?<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

The J8A has a very slow stall speed so make sure you're not coming in too fast. I usually come in slow-- a little too slow to hold the path I need to keep from coming in short of the strip-- then deploy flaps when I'm about 150m out to keep her up for the few extra seconds I need. As soon as I'm on the ground I retract the flaps to make sure she doesn't want to float back up off the ground.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Don't just go directly for the airfield sometimes, sometimes laying up, so your next attempt is shorter and more precise. Also, you might want to try a high loft wedge in very close attempts. Though if landing on the apron I'd suggest the universal 4 or 7 iron http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

don't know what you are takling abouthttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Actually I think our baby is a breeze to land.
I guess you are coming in way to fast

According to the original J8 manual landing speed is 80-85 kph.

Thankyou, I have switched to the putter and am now, occaisionally, getting perfect 3 pointers.

Landing speed of 160 was a bit too quick and I kept overshooting the green.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
