Mission 11: Flameout Landing
I came down on the runway, but apparently my sink rate was a little too high. Every single game I'd ever played, you'd get an immediate explosion, mission over, reload.How well does the F-16 glide? Like a 30,000-pound metal cinder block.
Actually, it glides a little better than a cinder block because of the wings… but not a lot better.
Not this time. This time, my landing gear collapsed. My F-16 proceeded to slide down the runway, kicking sparks out the back as I scraped off my air intake. My jaw drops and I just sit there and stare. The plane slides to a stop.
And then it tips over onto one wing.
