I refered to the link and it said approaches in fs2004 and fsx but you posted in fs2004 so I am guessing just fs2004 pics?

I think that one is a pretty stupid pilot error lol. Or if for some reason the atc just gave that aircraft clearance to take off right over you I wouldnt call it a difficult approach.

I'm sorry mustangpilot but i'd much rather prefer if your shot was of a dangerous approach, not just a pilot error. Please refer to the link i posted for a whole list of approaches.

Thanks

Why are you taking things so seriously? it's just a pic from a simulator.

This is all just a game, a bit of fun!!!

anyhoo the title says "The Theme for May is Dangerous Approaches "

I would call that pretty damn dangerous! Very Happy

I am taking things seriously because flyboy made the thread and the rules. Some people dont read the rules 100% and it leads to this and even though you thought it was a dangerous approach it wasnt is the point I am getting at.

This question and answer session should have gone to pm's and not stayed in the screenshot comp thread, it makes a farce of the whole thing, if you want things to work here gents lets make it professional and let the screenshot thread be just that ,not a question and answer session, there are plenty of other headers here for that! I have withdrawn my entry for this reason!
Sorry Flyboy92!

Well after flying more hairy approaches than my nerves can handle I decided on something I stumbled upon in the mountains of Pakistan. Gilgit airport (OPGT). Hard to get just one pic that sums up a tough approach but here's my attempt. The C-130 is just about the biggest plane you can get into there safely. You can just make out the airfield through the weather which came in all too quickly. Both approach and departure head straight at mountains - what were they thinking!

I was scared out of my wits here because I couldn't see, and my flaps and tail hook were stuck! The net didn't catch me, and I was killed!!!

Oh.....the humanity!!!!!
