The Stratocruiser is a difficult airplane to land. The mains are short and the nosewheel is long, so it sits slightly nose up. If you are the least bit too fast, you will land nosewheel first. Flight Sim tolerates a “wheelbarrow” landing, but the real one would probably collapse unless the landing was very soft. It really forces you to use the yoke to control airspeed, very precisely, and use the throttle to control the rate of descent, which is what you’re supposed to do even in a small airplane.
