Crazy Things with the Schweizer Sailplane

One time, I dropped the Schweizer at about 60,000 feet. I was gonna land at NASA Shuttle Landing Facility. I was like nosediving at about 7 miles away from the landing strip speeding at most 400-500 knots!!! Then I pulled up starting at I think 10,000 feet and slowing down-I didn't use dive brakes. I touched down on the runway around 200 knots. Activated speed brakes as spoilers and wheel brakes and I finally slowed down. My plane was even sometimes shaking and landing as a space shuttle. Believe it or not, you could touch down on a runway at 200 knots instead on 70 knots. I even tried to touchdown at 300 knots but I think I crashed and it's almost impossible. You gotta try it! Try landing a Schweizer Sailplane at 200 knots!!!!! It's so cool!!!! 👍 😀
