Hi everybody,

I was flying on MP last night with the usual group of people, and I was attempting a normal landing at PADQ. However, when I was about to touch down, I sunk straight through the ground!

you don't say which craft you were flying or if you were using custom scenery for that area...
"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."
