This "aircraft" does not have engines that can be started. So nothing you try will succeed. The idea is to load one of the 3 Flights (Entry, TAEM and Approach) and continue from there. The Space Shuttle, upon returning to the Earth's atmosphere, is nothing more than a glider.

Without a second chance approach. Undecided

It reminds me the 2001's incident of Air Transat flight 236, with 293 passengers and 13 crew aboard, who ran out of fuel in the middle of Atlantic ocean, in route from Toronto to Lisbon and made a emergency landing at Azores island.

The aircraft, a Airbus A330-200, without operating engines, could not use its thrust reversers, as well as the aircraft lost its main hydraulic power which operates the flaps, brakes, and spoilers during landing. Fortunately the flight crew managed to successfully glide the plane, and safely landed with the operation of the emergency brakes, at Lajes Air Base. Shocked

Hi Pinatubo.

I saw that incident on Air Crash Investigation on the National Geographic channel. A fuel line got worn through and leaked all their fuel because the crossfeed switch was open.

The Space Shuttle only gets one chance at landing every time it re-enters the atmosphere. Being nothing more than a "Flying Brick" it requires great skill. It is a lot of fun, until to get it wrong. This happens to probably half the time!

"Flying Brick" well describes the Space Shuttle and all aircrafts which are too heavy and lacks sufficient power to be maneuvered easily during landing.
