Hey guys,

I just put up a video on YouTube setting up a stunt scenario: landing on a rooftop. I hope you'd like to give it a try yourself!



What to do now?
Make a video or a screenshot of you landing on top of a building. I'll pick the best one(s) and feature them in a new Stunt Friday video!

How to submit your stunt
Upload a video response to this video, or if you just have (some) screenshots you can leave them in this topic.

Also, please let me know if you like this concept, maybe I'll think of a new stunt every week!

LOLOLOLLOLOL You could have tried not making it obvious that you had crazy winds turned on by not having precipitation.

It was real weather fetch, about 40 kt wind and it came with precipitation. Didn't know that bad weather was not allowed.
It was told, that the Storch could go backwards in strong wind. That I liked to find out. In FG the wind was never strong enough for that. But I never tried it with more then 50 kn. Flight log No is about 438, but it looks like you can't view the route any more.
But I'm sure, that better pilots then me could easily land there even in still air.
At least the plane is in one piece.

Hey I never said anything about windspeeds :wink: Well done on the landing, it really doesn't seem like you have a lot of space to brake there!

Thanks a lot! I hope you can try to do some rooftop stunts :)

Landing (almost) vertically with the F-16! I have only some screenshots atm, I'll make a video another time...
The maneuver is easy: fly pointing your nose at almost 90 degrees and turn off the engine; after a while your speed will reach 40-50 knots and you will stall; your nose will fall down and you'll have to retake control only with the flaps (no engine or airbrakes!); keep your nose between 0 and +10 degrees, your speed should be around 140-150 knots and you'll slowly lose altitude; just wait for the tuchdown, remember that you'll have to use the brakes to do a full stop.

That looks great! I must say it's easier to land with a plane that doesn't have the main gear at the front. That makes braking much more doable :P
Can't wait to see your vid :wink:

I seem to have pitched all my rooftop landing screenies. This one is somewhat interesting:

If you think it's easy, try it for yourself. The fuel tanks in front of the large hangar are good practice.

Re: the Storch, I don't think it's possible to land it on the tower roof without at least a 10-15 knot headwind. I did land the Cub there once with no wind, and it wasn't pretty.

Nice one :wink: I remember a YouTube video on that. When I tried it I didn't succeed (after about 5 times crashing, I was bored :P )

What the heck? Vertical hovering with a boeing? That's freaky.

Nice stuff here!

Must be the storm of all ages...?
Looks like the Russian always have some secret features incorporated in their technologies.
So we always were told, the Ekranoplan could only hoover a bit over the water. This assumption was totally wrong as you can see below.;-)
