  1. Just a few screenshots from the DC-3 Airways World Rally made into a video montage: The rally was a typical Norm Hancock mixture of bad weather, cross-wind landings and tortuous flight plans coupled with some buzzing around the landmarks of NYC. Great fun - hope you enjoy the video. CHeers - Dai.
  2. For the second leg of the DCA WR, we're in 'darkest Peru', so have your marmalade sandwiches ready! We fly from Pampa Grande (SPJB) south to Comandante FAP Germán Arias Graziani Airport (SPHZ). From the flight plan (Thanks, Tim), it looks fairly straightforward: Take off from Pampa Grande: Turning onto the TRU VOR (Trujillo) radial: An unusual navigation direction from Norm: "Head to the right of that sharp peak in the distance" - plenty of choice, I'm afraid! That's "Pico de Diamante" to starboard: Turning south east, up the valley: Picking up the ATA NDB (SPHZ): And that
  3. Here we go again with the DC Airways World Rally for 2013. Leg 1 is from Charles de Gaulle (LFPG) to Aix les Bains (LFLB), which is in south east France. Here's the Flight Plan (Thanks, Tim!): Just a few screenshots - LFPG Take Off: Leaving Charles de Gaulle: Turn at DJL VOR (Dijon): That's the Alpes ahead: Passing the Rhone: Turning towards Aix les Bains at St Claude: Picking up the ILS on approach to LFLB: Long Final to runway 18 at Aix les Bains: Touch Down: Hopefully I'll post the other Legs - Thanks for watching... Cheers - Dai.
  4. The third World Rally flight begins late afternoon in South Africa. and is almost exclusively navigation by NDB. The route is South Westerly from Retief and will terminate at Ficksburg, both cities in South Africa. The distance is about 245nm and flight time will be approximately one-hour and forty minutes. This is a VFR (Visual Flight Rules) flight and here's the Flight Plan courtesy of Tim Arnott's Plan-G (Version 3 - so no contour shading): Here we are, taking off on a lovely sunny afternoon from Retief: First turn at the VHD NDB: Turning west at the HS NDB: That's Bethlem by t
  5. The second World Rally flight begins in the dawn light at Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland, and is a mixture of NDB and VOR navigation following a North Easterly route terminating at Tingwall in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. The distance is about 234nm and flight time will be approximately one-hour and forty minutes. Here's the Plan-G Flight Plan (Thanks Tim): Sun coming up as we take off from Stornoway: Turning east at the first waypoint: Over the mainland of Scotland, turning at the second waypoint: Heading north from John-O-Groats, bound for the Inner Hebrides: This
  6. The first Leg of the DCA World Rally begins at Bandirma AB on the southern coast of The Marmara Sea in Turkey and traces the coastline east to the end of the lake. From there it becomes an NDB/VOR navigation flight to the north and then west to Corlu AB on the northern coast. The Marmara Sea connects the Black Sea and the Aegean Sea and separates Asian Turkey from European Turkey. The distance is about 165nm and flight time is around seventy minutes. Here's the flight plan - Thanks, Tim! Here we are, taking off from Bandirma AB and stowing the gear: Turning east at the coast of the Mar
  7. This is the last of the 10 Legs of the DCA World Rally, 2011, and takes us over the Andes, from La Rioja, Argentina (SANL) to La Serena, Chile (SCSE). The Flight Plan is IFR - flying between the LAR (LARIOJA) VOR at La Rioja and the TOY (TONGOY) VOR, south of Las Tacas (SCQT), before heading north east towards La Serena (SCSE). Here's the Flight Plan: Gear going up after take off from runway 03: Turning at 'Ghost Lake' - Lago Fantasmas: Picking up the LAS VOR as we return over La Rioja: Leaving the 236 degree radial from LAS and turning to TOY VOR: Highest point on the roof of t
  8. The penultimate Leg of the DCA Rally starts above the Arctic Circle at Bettles (PABT) and takes us to the northern coast of Alaska at Oliktok Point (POLI). Here's the Flight Plan, thanks to Tim's Plan-G: The Dizzie is firing on all 28 cylinders (hope that's right!), all the heaters are blasting away, so let's go: Turning north after the climb out from Bettles: That's Wild Lake below: Turning at Anaktuvuk Pass (PAKP): After an hour of nursing the engines, trying to prevent them from completely icing up (OAT less than 20 degrees negative), here we are making the turn at Ugnu-Kupa
  9. Home ground at last for this years DCA World Rally - Cambeltown, Scotland (EGEC) to London City, England (EGLC). An early start - well, bl**dy 5.30 a.m., actually! The sun ain't up yet: From Scotland, we fly towards Carlisle - here's the first turn to TRN VOR: No sun, yet, but a nice "moon shot": Turning south at the TRN VOR: No one's up in Windermere - no SUnderlands around, either! Over the Pennines and turning at Poll Hill - POL VOR: Here are some early risers racing along the M62: Dawn coming up over Chesterfield - too far to see the twisted spire, though: Turning
  10. Well, here we go again with the DCA World Rally. This is Leg 7 - a medium length flight of 192 miles in the middle of the day, from Iloilo (RPVI) to Nonoc (RP13) in the Philippines. This is the Flight Plan from Plan-G (Thanks again, Tim): Departing Iloilo - gear going up: Turning to 111 degrees for Negros: This is Barcolod airport: The island of San Crlos: Lapu Lapu airport: This is the island of Limasawa: Making the turn at the SU NDB: Nonoc in sight - gear down: Short-ish Final: And we're on the tarmac at RP13: The screen shots make it look an uneventful fli
  11. An early start for a flight across the Alps proper - from the Mediterranean coast at Nice (a favourite GTA location), over the north of Italy and the Dolomites, past the Mont Blanc massif and the Matterhorn, a distant view of Lake Lucerne and then down the valleys to Zurich. Here we are, ready to roll: Gear going up: After a climb out over the Med, we return to LFMN before turning north east for the TOPS VOR: Passing Levaldigi: Turning north towards the SIO NDB: The nearer peak is Grand Combin, with Mont Blanc behind: And that sharp little peak is the Matterhorn (yodel-odel-a
  12. Thie 5th Leg of the DCA World Rally follows the course of the Blue Nile from Debre Marcos, near it's source in the highlands of Ethiopia, through the gorges of the Upper and Lower Catarracts, to Damazin, by the man-made Rosieres reservoir. OAT required anti-icing and altitude necessitated a lean mixture when we took off: First we had to find the Blue Nile - just a stream here: Some 30 minutes later, we were over the Upper Catarracts: Time passes - here a re the Lower Catarracts: Then the Blue Nile broadens into the Rosieres reservoir: And there's Damazin ahead: Downwind ...
  13. The challenge in this series of 10 flight legs is to understand the convoluted workings of the organiser! Like GARSA, you get a narrative for each Leg of the Rally and have to work out how to navigate correctly from start to finish. Now, I thought this Leg would be straightforward - after all, we'd just returned from Andrew's GARSA in Colombia and this Leg finished at San Luis (SKIP) just as th 4th GARSA Leg did. But I was wrong... Here we are taking off from Guillermo Leon Valencia (SKPP) - at just under 10000 feet, the old Dizzie kept stalling until I reduced the mixture to a bare minimum.
  14. The 3rd Leg of DCA's World Rally is based in the south of France - from Montpelier, passing Marseilles, up the valleys towards the Alpes Maritime to Saint Crepin. Here we are leaving Montpelier LFMT: Flying east over the wetlands of the Camargue, we turn north east at Marseille/Provence LFML: Soon we are over St Aubin LFMX: Further up the valley, we turn east at Tallard-Gap LFNA: This is Lac de Serre Poncon: Just a short way north east to Saint Crepin. Long Final: And we finish on the tarmac at LFNC: Time for flight - 71.3 minutes and 111 gallons of fuel used. Your Leg ne
  15. Here's Leg 2 of the DCA World Rally, from Grand Coolee Dam, WA (3W7) to Grand Forks, BC (GZGF) - a real treat for Lonnie Donegan fans! Here we are with the gear going up at 'Electric City': Passing the Grand Coulee Dam: Following the great Columbia River: Turning north at Kettle Falls: The last waypoint at Avey Field: Approaching Grand Forks: And, finally, on the Tarmac at CZGF: A very pleasant flight along the mightiest river in north America. Thanks for flying the Team-Mutley Leg, Kieran! Cheers - Dai.
