Can You Land The Plane In This Game

Fri Sep 17, 2004 10:08 am

Hello all, I just stumbled upon an old link to a simple little flying game and I was wondering if any one can land the plane and or get the magic score of 10?, I managed it a few times!!

Just click on the throttle to start and use the arrows to steer your might craft to a safe landing or into the swimming pool.

This was posted many months ago in a long locked thread (so not a double!!) but I hope some of our newer members (or older) might enjoy this game again

Oh man, not this game again! I can't begin to tell you the amount of time I wasted on this thing the last time someone posted a link to it here!  Nuts

IHAP - highest I got was a 4...my wife who's totally not interested in airplanes, an 8! Her Dad still plays it from time to time. Love that techno music  Big thumbs up

I think the trick is to as soon as the game starts, go to the right and follow the border (counter-clockwise). When you're on upwind (right side), just allow the left wingtip to show. For the crosswind (top) and downwind (left side), allow only the shadow to show. Finally for the base leg allow only the left wingtop to show again. Finally, on final line it up and goodluck.

That's cool! Much swearing at the screen, 30 minutes out of the window and infinite attempts later I managed a 10 !

I find the best way is to do an overshoot, do a 180 with the wing clipping the top of the screen, come downwind and do another 180 at the bottom, another overshoot and then the same again but turn downwind and finals shorter on the second 'go-around'.  Smile

I find the best technique is to fly straight out at the beginning, and when you overfly the far end of the runway, make 2 complete 360 degree turns (just hold the button down), followed by a 180 degree turn so that you roll out on downwind...by the time you start to make the 180 degree turn you should be at an altitude of about 140 or so (give or take 10), then just fly a normal pattern to land from the downwind position and at worst you should end up on the runway almost everytime...

Just got a 10 after about 15 minute trying different patterns. The best way I found was to immediately go right and fly the border all the way around. It's funny how some simple games can be more fun than the most complex ones.
