Well hello! I don’t know any space nerds on the forum, but I hope I already attracted them to this thread!
Today I was thinking about the old Space Shuttle, and came up with idea of landing it using the HAC (if you don’t know any of this I highly suggest you watch this , because nothing in my video will make sense), I tried and failed, then tried and failed, then tried and slightly failed. Win for me!
Anyway in with the post, my video (which is terribly edited) is not 1000% realism; yes I started the HEC late, yes I descended at Mach 2, yes I decelerated at 3000g’s and yes I did break most, if not all, laws of physics.
Please note that I do not fly well, so yes I landed not on centerline!
Now let’s just have fun, lay back and watch the vid!
*yes I edited that badly if you want good videos check out: @sqeezelemon

Hope you learned something!
That was an impressive landing!
Thanks! I tried landing at the realistic speed of the Space Shuttle, but obviously the F22 isn’t built like that so I had a hard time flaring it. It’s a pretty fun challenge.
good job dear .
I like the way you control the F 22
Thanks, this one was hard, especially recreation of the limited beta on the Shuttle
Huge Space Geek here and SpaceX fan! Wow amazing
Very nice, along with @Aviation2929 I love space and SPACEX
Sorry for the late reply @aviation2929 and @bbrockairbus!
I’m also a SpaceX fan! Right about at 1:24 in the vid I pass right on the launch pad as that took the Dragon up to the ISS! (In the satellite image it shows the old config, SpaceX refurbished it)
Love that video! There was certainly some great moments there, haha.
Thanks, I really love that moment at 1.12 when I started decelerating at 5gs 😅.
So it is Infinite Space Shuttle!
I wish they still had the space shuttle!
Come on TACO you are better than that!! Nice landing Sir!
