  1. The fourth World Rally flight is another late afternoon flight, this time in Norway, and is mostly navigation by NDB with some VOR. The route first takes us in a North Easterly direction and eventually North West to terminate at Leirin, Norway. The distance is about 190nm and flight time will be approximately one-hour and twenty minutes. This is a VFR (Visual Flight Rules) flight, so keep those eyes open! Here's the Flight Plan from Plan-G (Thanks Tim!): It's a wet, windy day at Torp - but visibility is good. Here we are, stowing the gear: Turning towards our first waypoint, the DA NDB: Intercepting the 027 Radial from the TOR VOR: As we fly up Oslofjiord, we find the new bridge which has replaced the famous tunnel. At the end f Oslofjord is - Oslo: TURNING North at the SOL NDB: And here's Oslos main airprtat Gardermoen: Turning north-west at th MES VOR: Turning south-west off the MES 283 radial and watching the ADF needle tuned to theLL NDB: Tracking the 148 radial inbound for ENFG: Long Final - a little high, maybe: Short Final and... ... we're down: Well that's Leg 4 - almost half-way. See you next time - Thanks for joining me! Cheers - Dai.
  2. 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 the lake - turning south: Starting the descent to Ficksberg: Over our destination airport and about to enter the circuit: Base turn: Long Final: Short Final: And landed safely in the sunset. Time for a cuppa! Apologies if the flight wasn't as exciting as maybe you'd like, but enjoyable for all that! Cheers - Dai.
  3. 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 is Kirkwall, turning for the Outer Hebrides: After 70 miles of sea, we're at Sumburgh and heading north again: Lerwick in sight and gear going down: Long Final: And safely down at Tingwall, Lerwick. Hope you enjoyed this pleasant flight along the north coast of Bonnie Scotland! Cheers - Dai.
  4. 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 Marmara Sea: Turning again, inland at Waypoint 1: Second Waypoint - turning north towards the Istanbul area: This is Sabiha Gokcen Intl, just east of Istanbul: The Bosporus, with Constantinople on the west and Istanbul, the east: Istanbul Ataturk Intl Airport: My co-pilot took this with his mobile at Lake Buyukcekmece - we're still not sure what it is... Turning onto the Left Circuit at Corlu AB: Long final: Dropping down on the nubers for runway 23 at Corlu: Nice and easy - the calm before the storm, possibly? Hope you enjoyed the flight - more WR2012 Legs to come. Cheers - Dai.
  5. Thanks to Andrew Godden, of Bluegrass Airlins, and Mutley's Hangar, of course (!), we have a new challenge - the 2012 Great Aistralian Air Rally - GAAR 2012. Starting from Cairns International, this year's GAAR takes us around Papua New Guinea and the northern section of the Barrier Reef before returning to Cooktown, just a few nautical miles from the start, 10 Flight Legs later. The first Leg, from Cairns to Pormpuraaw, looks like this (thanks to Tim Arnott's Plan-G): It's a nice afternoon at Cairns. The old DC Airways DC-3 is ready to go: Climbing out and on our way to the first waypoint, the BIB VOR: Turning onto the 290 degree radial from BIB: The river below is Maddigan's Creek, where we turn for the KOW NDB at Kowanyama: That's Kowanyama (YKOW) behind us as we fly up the coast to Pormpuraaw: Downwind at YPMP: Long final, after turning south: And we're down: Tomorrow, we head up to Cape York and over the water to Murray Island. Thanks for flying with us! Cheers - Dai.
