My god, good question, I don't actually recall it landing at all.
Although I do recall at Kilimanjaro base, it was hoovering close to the
ground with the 100 Shiki on it's back, but still not really quite sure
if it landed. If it did land, I am sure it would be VTOL capable (and a
hell of a lot easier to get back into).

there are some thrusters roght up it's butt, under that huge tail, but
that's about it.
