ugh.. so I am taxiing out to 25R at LAX in my CRJ-200. flightplan is a short hop down to san diego.

everything seems normal... when all of the sudden my nose goes crashing through the ground.. as if there were a giant gaping hole there. it posted as a crash and reset the flight. i had to reset all instruments, do my checklist over again.. ugh.. so frustrating!!! Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

and this is not the first time this has happened.. and it's happened at multiple locations... does anyone know where i can get a patch for this annoying glitch?

I have that problem too. It happens sometimes, but when it happens it is so annoying.

As fas as I know there is no fix to this. I think it is a FS9 bug. Maybe it is gonna be fixed in FSX. 🙄

Have you got Crash Detection turned off in the sim?

mm.. i dont want to turn crashes off.. that will ruin part of the realism... although i suppose if i crash i'll just reset it on my own...

ugh.. my wheels will still fall through the giant invisible holes in the runway/taxiway 😕

just a half-hour ago i flew from Chicago (ORD) to Albany, NY (ALB). United flight 1114, Boeing 737-300. Everything went perfect.. nice weather, crystal clear skies, smooth flight... i even had enough visibility to turn AP off about 10 miles out on approach.. i took it in manually from the moment i had visual. Everything was awesome.. until i touched down on runway 28 (a smooth touchdown too.. nice flare)... and my left rear wheel falls through the ground.... i crashed, ruining the 2 hours i had just spent -er.. rather, wasted on the flightsim. this is getting on my nerves.. it happens quite often too.

and btw.. ATC screwed up too. i know the area, becuase i live about 100 miles from ALB and ive been there many times. commercial aircraft NEVER use runway 28-10 (except the commuters occasionally). it's only around 5000 ft. long and has no ILS capabilities. runway 1-19 on the other hand, has ILS at both ends and is a little over 7000 feet long. i tried requesting runway 1 or 19, but they wouldnt have it... ugh!!!

Do you have downloaded AFCAD's for these airports?


I typically dont have it happen to me once I have landed but it seems to happen more often when I am in an aircraft prior to takeoff and am at near capacity for wieght or its not evenly distributed... just an idea to offload some fuel if possible.

try d/loading diff taxi/runway textures and the d/load runway 12 see if anything there can help you

...well the runway assignments arent a problem anymore.. i found a suitable AFCAD file... however the invisible holes still pop up occasionally 😞

...hopefully miscrosoft will have this sorted out in FSX...since it seems to be the most re-occuring and annoying glitch in FS9 😕
