My Notes When I first loaded the plane it sank into the runway and bounced... ending up in the peculiar position at right!

On the next attempt I hit "Y" to enter yaw mode - then F4 to shift the plane up a few thousand feet. Now the plane flew - but with no sound. After hooning aroung the Italian countryside at low altitude for a bit I decided to land - fully expecting the plane to sink again. No! Landing and taxiing were fine and I even came to a full stop with no side effects.
