Short Final

Or 'How To Land An A20 Like A Cobra Jock'

Set up:

Heavily wounded, major red screen, leaking fuel off and on for half an hour.

I figured I had one shot at it.

Sweet landing :)

A moment there of 'why the fuck don't they have reverse thrust on these things'...

I'm gutted I didn't make it last night, my father decided we needed his company until after 22:00.

Still after mum died I have that as a first duty..

1) Record track

2) Rerecord with Fraps

3) Import to Windows Movie Maker

4) Try to figure out what you're doing :-\

5) Post to PhotoBucket

Faced with such a problem you can very carefully alternatingly apply left and right rudder to create "partial slip" on final (note, it should not result in a stall). Slight nose high attitude helps too, but if you find too much speed is bled off, then nose down a fraction until it corrects (this is easier to control with modern aircraft than tail-draggers).
