FLIGHT DETAILS

With the free release of the D77-TC Pelican to the Marketplace, we’re going to get a mass formation of these dropships all flying together during Friday’s community fly-in. While most of the Halo series takes place on other planets, onboard spaceships, or on the titular Halo rings, we will visit some Earth locations that featured in the series, including Mombasa (from Halo 2), Mount Kilimanjaro (from Halo 3) and Zanzibar (a Halo 2 multiplayer map).

I wanted to join the event but my MSFS decided to crash to desktop during loading screen for no reason (worked fine yesterday) and zero error messages. Just starts loading and boom, back to desktop. And I can’t figure out why it’s broken. Tried restarting, rebooting, removing mods et.c.

Have fun out there today. Really wanted to join the sky full of Pelicans flight :frowning:
