In landing, many things can go wrong. If your aircraft is already damaged, landing may be made much harder, but attempting a crash landing if possible is always preferable to ejecting and losing your aircraft. If you have engine damage, follow the above procedure as best you can. You may have a much higher VSI reading, and you could damage your gear, but gliding down with both engines out is possible.

Gear damage could prevent you from either retracting or lowering your undercarriage. If you cannot lower the undercarriage, land without. Try to keep the VSI very low, and deploy the brake chute if you have one on touchdown. If things look bad when you hit the ground, eject.

If your wheel brakes are damaged, it will be harder to stop. Deploy the brake chute and air brakes. If you look like careering off the end of the runway, deploy your arrester hook. Every runway has arrester cables for emergency landings. If you can't actually land on the runway, land near to it. You will be in for a rough ride, but should have a good chance. "
