This site has EXCELLENT advice on Landing a plane. Taking off, and taxiing are covered too but the keyboard commands etc, are only for another game called Targetware. Still it has very good advice on developing good landing skills with EXCELLENT graphics to enhance the lesson that would be valuable in IL2FB or any sim.

Here is the link to the Homepage. You can also get to the same link above about Landing from here under "Playing the Game".

Good link Sabla.
Although there are many excellent pieces around on takeoff and landing, both on the forum and at Mudmovers and Tailspin's site(s) the graphical representations surely will help many.
~S~ for your help.

Well, that thing with landing against the wind is all nice and fine, but how do you determine the wind direction if there is neither a wind bag nor a ground controller that can tell you that piece of information.

That really doesn't matter since wind isn't modeled in IL-2 either, except in stormy weather and then it is always a crosswind! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Landing in FB isn't that hard.

Take the QMB. Map: Smolensk. Altitude: 2000 m
Plane: russian rocket fighter BI-2, full fuel
and ammo.

When the mission starts, switch the engine off
and glide her in on the airfield north of your
position (Beresino). Take care and don't make
a crater in the runway or in the vincinity of
the airfield. It works.

Take the QMB. Map: Smolensk. Altitude: 3000 m
Plane: german FW190A-8, full fuel AND 500kg SC
bomb

and glide her in on the airfield north of your
position (Beresino). Take care and don't make
a crater in the runway or in the vincinity of

taking off and landing in fb is easier then cfs2 cfs3 xplane fs02 04 wwii fighters warbirds3 any prop sim i flew. In fb you take off in a couple feet with most a/c, which shows you how gravity and wing lift is wrong, just gun the trottle and no sever torque effect that will throw you off runway. FB is pretty much the easiest wwii flightsim out but best looking

try janes wwii fighters again hardest flight sim to land in

for landing in fb in planes that dont slow down with proppitch and no trottle turn off the magnetos and trottle back, if you need more mustard turn the magentos back on.

You dont even need flaps, at 300kmph you can drop your gear in any plane and it wont rip off, do stupid fish flop manuvers to bleed your speed if your coming in to fast and thats pretty much it. I usually hit flaps before touching down so you can do a nice 3pt landing in taildraggers, use the brake, rudder left/ right as differential braking to come to a quicker stop

Loved to land taildraggers in Janes WWII. I recall that you had to set up when you turned on final and usually lost sight of the runway under the nose during the last 15-20 sec. before touch down. If you overshot the front end of the runway, you were likely roll off the back end.

But the FM didn't include the spooky stall characteristics of FB's 109s and P-39, either. It took me a while. It seems automatic after a while...I'd like to be able to dial in a cross wind, ground effect, turbulence, etc.

It's the only thing!

Umm, Schnitter, in English, "windbag" has a specific and slightly derogatory meaning, usually applied to people (often politicians) who talk too much. In practice, you can always find a windbag to tell you almost anything (except the truth). I'm sure you can come up with your own examples...

Windsocks? The kind that inflate when you break wind?
