A critical failure has occurred and there is no time to repair and reboot the ground system before the shuttle will reach the runway glide scope acquisition point.

I gave this a 10 because of the final edition package See and fact that author emailed me back with positive support in less than an hour. It is one best packages have ever used it provides adventures, effects, realistic flight dynamics ability to crash land without sim coming halt. The user TYLON bogus rating 1 order get another aircraft he voted for higher on rated list shame people do things like that. This excellent addition my collection.

NASA has recently provided me with structural integrity specs and updated suspension system information. The update will include the shuttles real ability to water or ground slide land in an emergency. Also, new belly effects be added. Update coming soon address landing gear not visual issue. If you are seeing this problem now, fs9.cfg, change shuttle 0 a 1 under heading FrameCallNoWarn . Hope everyone enjoys package
