hi all
i was just coming into land from a flight from heathrow to changi and i landed my rear gear perfectly but when my front gear touched down it kept going through the runway, the funny thing is it didnt register as a crash on fsp and i thought it was a very smooth landing. i noticed also the wings were jolting around violently. this has never happened before. does anyone have any asuggestiongs on why this happened and how i can prevent it happening again. by the way i was using a qantas 747-400.

much appreciated.

that often happens especially if you have added scenery. It is just because the runway bitmap is not quite on the same plane as the actual hard <0> plane. I have scene times when my plane is almost buried.

Me too, its annoying but inevitable, although my planes have never appeared 'buried'. Usually, its just half my wheel or something like that Wink

does it happen evey land u do?
as this is the first time it has happened to me and it doesnt do much for the realism your trying to achieve.
is there any way we can stop it

When you say the wheel 'kept going through the runway' do you mean it was completely buried. If so, this is abnormal. If its only slightly embedded into the runway, I don't what can be done.

yes all the way up to the belly of the plane. its perplexing because fsp doesnt register it as a crash. but i thought it would be fine as i have a small amount of fuel on board so it isnt as if im fully loaded.

If its all the way to the belly of the plane then that is definately a fault. Are you using add-on scenery??

no, the plane is an add on but has never happened before though.

It is just this airport, just this one time or does it happen all the time at all airports??

come to think of it yes it has just happened at this airport. i have landed with other planes at this airport with no problem though

Well, it all points to your 'qantas 747-400' then.

It seems the aircraft is not compatible with fs9.

If you really want assistance, give us something to work with. 'qantas 747-400' just doesn't cut it. Exact .zip file name and download source... what's so difficult about that?

i hope so.

but the thing is i have landed at other airports with the same plane and that was fine. it just doesnt seem to like changi.

I've had the same problem sometimes with some aircraft, specifically with an Air India 747 I was using. It was as though the gear wasn't there Umm...

exactly, its just annoying that its only done it this one time. and weird the fact the passengers were fine with the nose gear sinking through the runway and her belly scraping along.

I'm pretty sure this can easily be remedied. It's a matter of editing the aircraft CFG file. Something to do with contact points.

Yes that's something - you've given me the ZipDive...

Back to your problem with this particular aircraft:

I'm pretty sure this can easily be remedied. It's a matter of editing the aircraft CFG file. Something to do with contact points.

The above suggestion by freedspeak is a good one to keep in mind and to remember. - Concerning this particular aircraft, you won't have to bother with editing.

The Flight Dynamics of the POSKY aircraft are more realistic than the default Microsoft ones. This means among other things that your landing gear can collapse if you're not careful.

Even though your maingear is already safely on the tarmac -- if you force your nose-wheel down because you're afraid there won't be enough runway left to stop the aircraft, your nose-wheel in a POSKY 747 will collapse.

I know you said that you've landed the same aircraft successfully at other airports but that you seem to be having problems at Changi (WSSS).

I can assure you there is nothing wrong with the default Microsoft runways at WSSS.
Try another landing there - clear all weather - no wind, daylight and go by the book. Don't use FSPax for this experiment - the chase for points just distracts you from the proper approach and landing procedures. I bet you a Dollar, you'll be landing nice and smooth. Just don't get nervous and tense when it's time for the nose-wheel to make contact with the tarmac.

Good luck, let us know how you're progressing Idea

Very Happy
