Not sure if this is classed as technical but I was just flying into TNCM, as I thought I was lined up with the runway, as I got to just about the touchdown I was in fact lined up with the taxiway, I was unable to see the runway visuals all I could see was buildings and the other planes the rest of it was just like grass/mud so I initiated a GA thinking it would fix the second time round however I had the same issue but I was able to figure out where the runway would be due to where the aircraft holding short were but my friend on the ground who landed before me said when I touched down the front of my plane sank into the ground and all he could see was my tail, and I experienced the same the front of the plane dipped underneath the surface and all I could see is what I could only explain as blue sky. Disappointed after 3 hours plus of flight time wasted as I crashed and didn’t get to see any of TNCM can this be fixed or is it a known issue. Thank you.
Just to clear up some possible confusion, there seems to be issues with airports, some 3-D objects, and all 3-D objects disappearing in the past few weeks, primarily at arrival airports. On my end it’s hasn’t been traffic dependent at all and, given how many times similar issues have been reported, devs are likely working on a fix.
Get your video replay share it to IF AKA Share My infinite flight. Theres a section in IF you go to get the video up load it to where I just said, get the code for that video and either 1. PM a dev here or IT support person or 2. Email the IF team and yes nothing much you can really do… apart from that.
When there is a large amount of traffic, especially in a 3d airport, things tend to lag a little. This can come in the form of planes disappearing or, like in your case, runway visuals disappearing. At least that is what I have experienced. Great awareness with the go around though! This kind of reminds me of Air Canada 759 at San Francisco, haha!
Yeah that’s what I thought it may have been but couldn’t figure it out I was hoping it would pop up at last minute but it didn’t lol and I watched that Air Canada 759 on YouTube and when I saw that I was above the taxiway (when I saw two plane noses facing me) and I thought of that video for a brief moment, I won’t say what I said out loud but yeah it was a close call lol and thanks 😁 I never thought I’d be that guy to line up with a taxiway but hey ho lol it’s all experience and a mistake to learn from. 😁✈️
