Flight Sim daredevil successfully lands plane in weird chasm

On Friday, Pesco introduced you to the weird, 300m-deep chasm with a runway at the bottom found in Microsoft Flight Sim 2020, deemed even more disturbing than the creepy mystery skyscraper looming over suburban Melbourne. The ultra-realistic game's eldritch glitches have become a popular topic of discussion, but the chasm is a challenge for experts: can you actually land a plane in it?

It's remarkably unsettling for a game clip: after the plane dips below the "event horizon" of the chasm's edge, the seemingly-impossible job of landing it down there becomes a virtual live-or-die proposition. And the game's simulation of reality starts to fall apart during the descent. But this pilot made it!
