Aug theme: Breaking the rules!


Recommended Posts

I thought this month we would take our subject from a suggestion from last months winner CSoul.

"Breaking the rules"

The idea would be to do something absolutely outrageous, the more outrageous the better (though not necessarily realistic). For example, looping the default 747, rolling the Boeing 707 (has been done in the real-world), or giving passing pedestrians a haircut/singe.

So, if there's something crazy you want to try make sure you take a screenshot of it and post here. Don't forget, no edits except for re-sizing and autograph.

Good luck one and all, please make sure you check out the rules before entering, the closing date is Tue Aug 31 23:59 BST (UTC+1)

Wow ! No takers yet !

Nice concept... gonna have to give it some thought!

When you say: "doesn't have to be realistic... " what about:

...I'm flying a piper cub over secure airspace, and giving the finger to the 2 F16's either side of me.....? :help:

Okay here we go, First up we have the impossible

AN-225 taking off from HMS Ark Royal on a supply run

Then we have the downright illegal, Fouga Magister UNDER the Eiffel tower at 300kts

finally, Due to the recently announced defence cuts, The Royal Navy finds a new way to keep the grass cut on the airfields now that the groundsmen have gone !

Now that would be something to see! :biggrin:

A 737 in Iron Maiden Livery. Flying low, slow, and bursting everybody's eardrums. Figures doesn't it?

Low and slow is just no fun at all. :help:

Captain, I don't think that's a good idea...

Seatac, Thats not as far off as you'd think. When the first 747s entered service no-one was aware of the massive wake they created, At that time there were still light aircraft operating out of Heathrow and we had several aircraft damaged and blown off course by hitting 747 wakes as they came in. There was also a famous incident of a 747 actually overhauling a light aircraft on approach and almost causing a fatality. I witnessed this incident as it was almost directly over my house ! ( I lived in Cranford at the end of Heathrow) After that the GA stuff was banned from LHR and the 747s were given a 1 mile seperation zone.

That's a great shot. But that has to be edited, right? Unless that Trike is going at least 150 knots!

Thanks! I used FSRecorder and had to hold the sim for the shot.

perfectly legal method applied judging from what has been in previous competitions, an excellent capture Manuel, like i say, we might as well just give you the prize now!

Simon-

No offence, but I think you are being a bit unfair to the rest of us, im yet to enter because I do not have an idea to submit, but you are putting me off by saying lines such as;

"we might as well just give you the prize now!"

I do hope no offence is taken, but it does seem a tad unfair to be making those calls, when the contest just started.

no offence taken, apologies if the comment makes you not want to enter, but with a shot like Manuels it's hard not to submit to defeat - i'm a case in point, my entries i had ready were nothing compared to that so i'll not enter this time around.
