I tried landing a CRJ-700 on Catalina Island airport :P. And I was able to did it, I came in almost near stall speed, touched the runway, applied the brakes, spoilers and reverse thrusters. I came to a complete some with only 50 meters left of runway xD. I think in real world it would be impossible, though. And the planes was not heavy, almost no fuel and passengers lol. But it's a nice flight on a Cessna ;).
Sorry for the mistakes up there :P. It's I was able to do it - the plane was not heavy. Btw, I mean a flight from KLAX to Catalina.
Have fun building planes, etc, and also fly them! The game is called ROBLOX.com
