Oops. May have been an old FS pilot. Before autobrakes were actually added to FS, the trick was to land with the parking brake set. :-)

Amazing. I've heard of flat-spotting the tires, but not the brake disks :-lol---------------------------------------"If it doesn't have a VC, I won't be flying it http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v615/DarrenA300/smug.gif" ... hang on a minute .... http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v615/DarrenA300/unsure.gif ... that is too restrictive! Most flight simulator planes don't have a fully functional VC .... I'm happy to fly non-VC planes such as the brilliant iFDG range, Samdim's fantastic aircraft, POSKY's wonderful planes, and many many others! I'm the richer for it :).

I had to go up to KBOS to change all 4 main's on a Saab 340 for the same thing,When I got to talk to the captain about it,he was very upset like he had been just chewed out by a certain Senator/Airline owner.It was very cold out on the ramp for me. so I sugested a case of beer for the mechanics was on order. Still waiting............. I hate pilot's:-mad ;)
