Another one with the POSKY A330: https://forum.flyawaysimulation.com/forum/topic/35879/something-is-wrong-with-contact-points/

I guess I need to land at faster speed to keep the nose from dropping down. 🙄

Seen that I wasn't dead, I recorded the flight Crying or Very sad . And now it says on my log that I have passengers killed.

RIP virtual passengers

It was NOT a real crash, come on, hitting the runway's centerline 120fpm would NOT be a crash

109 knots that does seem a bit slow for the A330. As a general rule of Thumb I like to land the heavy's around 130-160 knots IAS.

Oh and your Pilot is not dead...any landing you acn walk away from is a good one. 😎

more excellent piloting! 😀

109kts cuz i was trying to do a good touchdown so i idle throttle and flare for a while to put it down smooth, i did do a smooth landing but the speed was low so the nose came down and broke, i still don't see how 120 will be killed 🙄 . I think POSKY's A330 have a bug, i had many accidents like this happen just with the A330(and sometimes POSKY 737 but thats ok 😉 ). It almost never happens any other POSKY plane. and I always approach at a speed more than 130IAS but on flare my speed at touchdown is slow. like 737 my approach speed is 130 but on flare it goes to 120. The 747 i flew today from KSFO to EHAM, when I approach its fast(i don't see the speed but i think its 150 to 160) but when I land its 149kts.
