They just sit there, then if you launch the space transport back into space, the fixed wing aircraft immediately crash. They will sit there "landed" in mid air safely, til you move the space transport. Ive seen them sit there for a realtime 20+ minutes

so ive been watching this ,and even helicopters do it ,and they instantly crash if you launch the transport .Ive also noticed its usually in groups of 2.I have yet to spot a group over 2 doing this. I kind of like it, except for the crash on launch part.If this is abug, it would actually make a fun feature ,is the group size was increased so thta a few stacks of aircraft could hover around a transport and get supplies

Battlegroup 18 ,consisting of one eagle scout unit (did you do that on purpose ? )is located in a stack that has a landed space transport, and a landed fixed wing aircraft at it.

K, I think I see the conflict we created. Some units are incorrectly marked as carrier landing capable. Space transports were giving carrier capacity to be able to transport interceptors/attack fighters but that's not intended to allow planetary air units to land on space transports. We'll looking into this further.

I did notice that you're using a save which is now 2 versions back. Part of what we fix here will be an equipment file update, that won't affect savegames, only new games. Just FYI.

I actually think you should leave them with the ability to land aircraft.Space transports can launch aircraft, they should be able to land them.

Just to be clear , as ive prob mixed the terminology up a bit... If like space transports to be able to load, and launch planet based aircraft , as well as have planet based aircraft lad at them.
