If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall

well since the new Lukla terrain is up do you think you might have the same success with the C-5? The runway is rougher, narrower, and has a 9 degree pitch. I'm going to try landing the AN-22 there.

Rougher and the pitch up plays probably in my favour after I have now better dampers and independent wheel suspension on the C-5. It's fun, load her, let her run over rough terrian with a lot of speed and watch the wheels from the side :ugeek: . Turning with those long wings now that's narrower ... that's another story, I guess.

It is simply impossible to land a fully loaded B-52 at TNCS. Trying the 748 :)

ROFL

I know the 748-i is much easy of a task.

Lego, did you try the B-52, I refurbished for the USA Tour? I swear, I used only real data, I found in the Internet, but if you come in full flaps as slow and low as you can and then trigger the chute about 4 seconds before the actual touchdown, it deploys and gets effect right over the threshold. Reversers in, brakes and nose up at the same time, and you can stop her in about 400ft (that is because you actually stopped her in the air and let her drop the last ten feet.
