Recognize that wharf straight ahead? It should be a cinch to set the airplane down on it, so go ahead and do it. But don't use any of the grass beyond the wharf. And, of course, don't use any of the water, on any side. What you can use, naturally, is your flaps and, at the last, your brakes. Remember that flaps let you descend more steeply, without undue in-crease in airspeed, and significantly lower the stalling speed of the aircraft.


San Francisco Wharfs

If you use flaps, remember to dump them (zero them) after you've landed, or they'll carry right over to the next scenario you save.
