Crashed into ground at 50ft

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

Just a quick question regarding a strange thing I've had when landing the pmdg 747-8 in KBOS.

The problem was that at 50ft and I was going to flare it crashed into the ground.

Any ideas to fix this issue?

 

Landing Runway : 33L

Landing Runway : 33L

A few possible causes:

  • Have you installed the 'Boston v4.1' scenery? If for some reason you have Boston v4.0 installer, you need to patch it with an update or download the Boston v4.1 installer from wherever you purchased the scenery. 
     
  • Ensure that there is no additional KBOS AFCAD file active (check ORBX AEC if you have Vector, check UT2 or MT6 traffic programs as they add their own additional AFCADs, or any other possible active AFCAD in Scenery/World/Scenery folder).
     
  • Mesh resolution being too high or too low, try 5m.
     
  • There was a patch for runway 27 (which is close to runway 33L threshold), look for the 'Rwy27_Platorm.BGL' patch on the 'Landing rwy 27' thread on the FlyTampa Boston forum.


Hopefully, one of those turns out to be helpful.

I think I had a similar issue. What setting is your mesh at? If it’s on the lowest setting, try setting it one notch higher. That fixed it for me

I'm not using any addons for Boston, just the default one.

 

But my mesh was at 2m and I've set it to 5 and I'll run some test on my next flight.

 

Thanks
