This was probably my best and most difficult FS landing ever! The landing was flown from inside the cockpit and I didn't realize how close my right wing came to the ground. LoL...

I thought it would be interesting to see videos or screenshots of other landings at St. Barts.

I've well and truly moved onto FSX but I'll stick my "attempt" in anyway. I decided to take an MD-82 out of SXM for a short hop across.

I don't have fraps installed at the moment thus no video, but the screenies speak for themselves. Touchdown was firm to say the least.


These pax have no idea what I'm about to do.

Finally came to a stop just a "little" too long. Nice instant shade for the various visitors to the beach however.

Wasn't bad I thought.

It did deploy, but I must have knocked it back down...fail. I also should have raised the flaps as soon as I touched down for better short field performance. Hey it works in the C152 at my local airfield, I'm sure it would work here right?

gingersnap: Full flaps in airliners actually provide quite a bit of stopping power... you have your spoilers to dump the lift.

I know I was being sarcastic. I guess it didn't come across so well in my last reply.
