Weekend Randoms

Recommended Posts

Well they don't come more random than this...

I've spent a lot of time this weekend writing reviews, re-doing web pages and re-installing some FS9 software. On this point Captain Sim were very good in helping me get my Legendary 727 back into the air. Also had to re-install Lukla for my impending flight of doom!

I'll shut up now, here they are, FS9 & FSX aircraft old and new.

Budapest, 736 ready to taxi to the active.

Hope you enjoyed, I'm off to judge the screenshot of the week.

Very nice. Very nice indeed. :mrhappy: Really love the 737 shots. I might take my 727 for a spin in the future as well.

Flanker must have been pretty easy to get out of Lukla. So much power!

So, Mut, how DID you get that SU-27 into Lukla, eh? In REVERSE :!: :?: Love to see the landing - I almost managed in the default Cessna - it's a b*tch :mrhappy:

Cheers - David.

Oooh there's an idea. I only started from Lukla, the Flanker was built on site after being smuggled into the country, in a thousand pieces on the backs of Sherpas!

Cheers

Mut, that's disappointing! I was hoping for a story about how you shot a back course approach through 10/10ths overcast to minimums, using only an out of calibration VSI and an ADF tuned to a station 50 miles away and your elevator trim stuck full nose-down, with a thunderstorm raging, and freezing rain and a 70 knot crosswind component and gusts to 95. And how you flawlessly performed the famous Cobra manuever to bleed off the last of the airspeed (with a little vodka and yak milk beforehand to keep the courage up and the good judgement down), at 5 meters AGL, right over the threshold, at 2 knots above the stall, with everything down and dirty and one hand on the drogue chute release and the other on the ejection handle - - - - oops, you're out of hands... and airspeed... and altitude... and ideas... and luck.

Well, maybe building it there wasn't such a bad option after all. The touchdown would have made a great screen shot though. Pity.

John,

I guess I don't have such a vivid imagination as you, I think you missed out attempting this at night with only naked candles as runway lights, although that would just be plane silly!

Still, I have a landing here coming up soon with leg 13 of the challenge so that should be interesting :mrhappy:

Cheers
