The hoax supporters keep bashing on about this particular accident. They say that "if a skilled pilot can't land this on Earth, how is he supposed to land one on the Moon?"

They completely ignore the hundreds of other successful flights of the four free flying Bedsteads and always quote this one disaster. Besides, the thruster that failed didn't even exist on the real LM, so the same problem wouldn't occur on the moon anyway.
