[OFFICIAL] Weekly Dev Update Screenshot Challenge: Need for Speed

It’s time for another screenshot challenge! The idea is to collectively explore different parts of the world together - areas that may be very familiar to you or perhaps a new place you have never flown before. Feel free to find others to fly with to capture the challenge, or go solo!

Last week’s winner from Italy and Malta: @YusufWardana

This Week’s Challenge

Need for Speed: Our free Top Gun: Maverick DLC is out now! Capture a screenshot with either the F18 or Darkstar during a flight or any of the new Challenges/Training. Feel free to pay homage to Top Gun in any of your shots!

If you have any screenshot challenge ideas for the future, send @Jummivana a DM!

  2. Any type of weather

Two more. . .the plan was to fly from Groom Lake to KEDW via Oklahoma. But like the Mav, I got a little carried away.

Whoops. That’s KDFW down there!

Then, since I couldn’t push her past 9.86M no matter what I did, I decided to go for an altitude record. . .and managed to join the “top 5 fastest folks alive” club.

PS. Good thing I was squawking 1200 for VFR flight.
