I was watching AI traffic when I was at KLAS, and I focused my camera on an AI Dash8-100 coming in for landing. As I watched him a liitle more I noticed he was high on his approach, and instead of going around he pitched the nose down at about a 20 degree angle, hit nose first on the runway, all the wheels went underground, he then popped back up and landed. It was the strangest thing. Have you seen anything like it?
I haven't seen anything like that yet, but I have watched a plane a couple of miles from the runway just 'driving' on the ground to the runway at KSEA. I can only guess that the computer dropped it's speed too low and the plane stalled because it was trying very hard to get back into the air.
is this real life or simulation?? i presume sim or deaths would have occured!! Scary!
My incident of watching the plane 'driving' was in FS2004 as was PanAmerican's I'm sure.
By default, fs9 doesn't display crashes.
You can change this in 'Settings' - 'Realism'. Look for something like... "Crashes and Damage".
PanAmerican, what AI traffic package are you using?
Is it one you have put together yourself or is it a payware addon like Ultimate Traffic?
I use UT and have never experience anything like what ypu have described
It's the default AI Traffic
i have noticed that with all default and add-on traffic, all of the descent rates seem really sharp - dive of death comes to mind!!
