3. Run at high compression to allow ships to move to patrol zones
4. Hit Formation editor.
5. Re-order Storm into it's zone (marked in Yellow).

Defect Name: Shot down during landing
Build: HCE 2007.000
Repeatable: Y
Operating System: XP
DB used: HCDB-070524
Scenario used: Stage Fright [EC2003 IOPG] User-created
Long Description: Air Group BJA consisted of four aircraft. BJA is in the process of landing. Two have already landed. One was shot down. The final aircraft in the group is about to be shot down. When it is shot down, the two aircraft already on the ground will be stranded in limbo and listed as Landing, but they will never move out of that phase and are forever lost to the player/AI. This situation is easily replicable for any DB and is definitely not specific to HCDB.

Sequence to reproduce:
1. N/A - saved game available.

Expected behaviour: Aircraft already landed should be re-armed and available to player/AI.
Observed behaviour: Aircraft, already landed, are stranded in the Landing Pattern [limbo] if the last aircraft in the group is destroyed.
