I have just had the most craziest thing happen to me... Was doing a flight from LAX to SFO, everything was going fine as I was on course, had the runway in sight and speed was good. I had just contacted SFO Tower and accpeted landing clearence, it stated "Number 1" for landing on 28R, and then just before I reached the runway, I noticed a large shadow behind me, and as the image shows, an MD-80 flew directly over the top of me, and came into land on 28R! Just as I touched down, the tower instructed me to do a 'go-around', but because there was such a small distance between the two aircraft, I ended up ramming the MD-80 up the behind, literally! Bet I won't be able to re-create it again, but by jove it was an interesting experience! :D

Doesn't an attached picture usually enlarge when you click on it? It seems to not do it in this thread.

Yeah, sorry, but the file size is 400kb, max to upload is 300kb, so I had to reduce it, but didn't know how to make it any bigger than it is... :o If you strain your eyes for a few seconds, you should be able to make it out.

I've had that happen to me once or twice before as well. You need to download the add-on that somebody recently - AIsmooth. It will stop this from happening as well as "go-arounds" by placing either your aircraft or AI traffic into a holding pattern.
