IL2 BOS Tutorial 2 : BF109F4 landing

I would have to admit that landing has never been my strong point. And because of that it's something that I want to spend more time on. A prop plane of this era can be quite a handful on approach. And the sequence of keeping it straight, manipulating speed, height and rate of descent, requires a great deal of practise, and understanding of the individual aircraft.

In this video I look at the BF109 F4. A brief traffic pattern and a turn onto final, ending with a flare and a slight bump when setting the wheels down, and we have a landing that while not perfect is a workable platform to take further.
