Jeff:Isn't this a gear-up landing shot from below the terrain level (there's one external camera that will do it)? This would explain the sparks, coming from the scraping points.Regards,Alejandro AmigorenaCheshire, CTFly!

But why ? , Does it look like it`s coming from the left nacelle Instead of the bottom of the Fuselage, I know checklists are a part of the routine, I know I fly the 172 RG in real life, Gear down is part of it.Just was playing around with the sparks Jeff Akins
