Quickmarch 488 Posted January 5, 2014 Report Share Posted January 5, 2014 Last night, having exhausted all of my normal FSX activities, I decided to re-visit the "Missions" section of the FSX menu tree. I found one that was not checked off, ie: a mission I had not flown back in the early days of getting involved with FSX. The mission name is "Whiteout". I have officially renamed this mission "Wipeout" I did all the usual stuff, looked over the briefing, perused the charts, copied the freqs needed onto a scratch pad, then headed out to the aircraft to dazzle the passengers with my expertise. Startup went fine, taxi to the active went well, turning onto the runway for the long run down to the opposite end presented me with a hill - sort of encroaching on the runway. Ahh! What the heck! Let's see what happens if we taxi over the hill. Not to be! the plane disappeared INTO the hill. On popping out the other side onto the remaining portion of the runway, I decided to pull off a left hand 180 degree on the runway apron to head back for the takeoff, Reasoning that; if the plane taxiied through the hill, it would probably takeoff through the hill. I was surprised when the plane started to climb the hill. Halfway through it's 180, instead of simply disappearing into the hill as had happened before, the intrepid aviator continued the turn - and fell in! Needless to say, a subsequent reset of FSX and a retry of the mission simply repeated the problem and resulted in: A failed mission. Oh well, off to bed. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
