Let me just say in May I’ll be 50, being said, even after 20 years of a USAF career with a TS+ clearance, PRP monitored and at one time had the keys to unleash hell that makes ragnarok look tame; I can do some stupid things in game.
I’ve got 7 violations total with over 800k flight hours, 677 flights and 680 landings; all for over speed and all for…you guessed it, the Q400.
It usually happens when while flying along, the ye ol girlfriend starts trying to talk to me at the same time or she needs help getting the groceries in, or take out the trash …eesh lady can’t you see I got more important things to do like fly this plane!
Well the latest was flying the Q into SEATAC, no one was around so I said WTF, let’s do something stupid … again
No, there was no violations and technically no rules broken but in RL there would have been an NTSB investigation lol.
I got side tracked and had to feed a cat, did I end the game mid flight? He’ll no! Did I miss my TOD? Yes! So, had there been other players around I would have done an orbital descent at a hold point, probably not a correct term for the slow corkscrew descent for a proper approach…
What did I do instead? I negative G’d that b!t©h lol barely keeping it below 250 KIAS. No flaps (because in reality they’d just blown off hitting some poor shmucks car at terminal velocity) assuming that I would actually still have wings; that if I did, they’d flex like an Imperial shuttle from Star Wars
So as I get near the altitude that I’m supposed to be at, I’m able to flare and do a no flap landing at the paddles doing 150 KIAS! I get a butter landing with clapping thanks to Infinite Assistant. Reverse Props then brake, that would have probably caught fire, melted the tires, caught what fuel was left on fire, burning it all to the ground on 16L and totally ruining the schedule for the entire US Northwest for 3 weeks in RL and parked at Q12!
Thanks for flying with LYFTinUBER folks, may the odds forever be in your pilots’ favor.
DO NOT try this at home people, I got lucky
