Have you tried X-Plane before? In X-plane you can simulate the shuttle return to earth and it is a very tricky procedure. You literally have to have the nose pointed down something like 20 to 30 degrees to have any control capability on it.


X-plane is a very realistic simulator. Very different to Flight sim and supposedly used by Burt Rutan for space ship one design.

Anyone seen the movie Space Cowboys with Clint eastwood in it?


It is an absolute scream of a movie and when they were in the Shuttle Simulator at NASA using their old 50's style of being a test pilot they are coming in far to hot with all systems failed and they just yank it up to stall and plonk it on the runway - if you have not seen the movie then my recomendation is to rent it, borrow it, steal it what ever you have to do cause it is fantastic. Another great part is when they are trying to out do each other in that machine that goes round and round that inflicts horrible G's on you and their face is getting stretched around to their ears:laugh:006_laugh.gif.0f7b82c13a0ec29502c5fb56c616f069.gif006_laugh.gif.d4257c62d3c07cda468378b239946970.gif
