Bad weather – major fog
The weather is horrific, with visibility near zero. The B-17 formation spreads out to avoid the risk of collision, and navigator saggysack and radio op. mikey23545 team with the pilot crew to ensure location. After circling for a bit as ground control allows extra time to clear runways, ndbbm lines up Throw Bomba and brings it in for a landing. At 50 feet, a faint outline of the ground becomes visible, and sure enough, the runway is there. Ndbbm brings it in.

“Whoa!” JimNasium yells, but it’s too late. The B-17 was almost lined up with the runway, but not quite. A hundred feet into the landing, it’s apparent that they’ve come in at an angle. As ndbbm pushes the rudder left, the right wheel runs off the runway. A split second later, the plane responds and overcorrects to the left. Ndbbm rudders back right as JimNasium frantically cuts the engines, but it’s too late. Throw Bomba leans hard, and the left wingtip takes out a fueling truck that should never have been parked that close. The force of the collision spins Throw Bomba back left, and the right wing hits the runway.

From there, no one knows exactly what happened next. Five seconds, later, though, Throw Bomba is in the middle of a taxiway, facing the wrong way, lying on its side with its left wing ripped off. Crew members burst from every available hatch as the fire starts, ChiefJustice being the last to limp away frantically through the spilled fuel. All ten members escape safely, but Throw Bomba goes up in a funeral pyre as ndbbm shrugs to his crewmates.

Call central supply, and Get ‘em another plane.
