KPVD (Providence) to CYYT (St. Johns) - destination was socked in, but cleared out above MDA (whew).
NO screenshots but today did a flight picked at random from sky park and did alot of neo fly missions in the UK in the Helicopter
Decided to take a short evening hop in the CRJ from Amsterdam to Manchester.
Left Amsterdam in pretty nice weather.
Closer to Manchester all of sudden some clouds started building
and darker still.
where’s my plane?
Clouds down to 700ft AGL, should probably have gone around or diverted.
Also, whoever place a shack on taxiway Delta after holding point D1 should be fired!
Chichen Itza in the Yucatan
The strip next to it doesn’t have an airport marker, but is perfectly usable.
From my Air Journey World Tour Leg 12 - Chiang Mai, Thailand to Luang Prabang, Laos
High and Hot in the hills of Laos. RNAV never kicked in, and it was all minimum speed maneuvering during the approach.
I did a A32NX CAT3 landing in Nice - Côte d’Azur…but Runway 04L had been moved!
So the big ASOBO update of France misplaced the runway…or was it BING …or MSFS 2020?
Absolutely. Lived there for two years years, travelled quite a bit. Now, the sim saves me big bucks.
I just got into the plotting and planning theory.
Today I tried my first route. All planned with a plotter and E6-B.
All went well, but the actual flying and finding my checkpoints was the real challenge.
I found myself deviated 7NM off course😅
But it is way more fun doing it this way, especially when all turns out the way you planned.
Figured that. I fly there periodically. Did duty there 14 months. Get a chance now to go where I couldn’t then.
I took a flight lesson over Sedona Arizona and my flight instructor crashed us into the side of the mountain. My first ever MSFS2020 flight. Why would that happen?
After the last flight from CYQB to CYUL when the weather had no connection with that in Meteoblue, this evening’s flight did so I was able to proceed as planned. Cancelling the IFR I flew VFR to Trois Rivières and landed there (not recorded in my MSFS logbook but was in my LNM record). Departed and resumed the IFR flight plan, climbing to 8000 ft. Ran into icing. The DA62X can handle the ice. ATC were on the ball and gave me a descent to 4000 ft and then 2500 ft for an ILS approach to 24L. Aircraft everywhere with ATC telling me where they were. Radio calls were spot on. Very immersive except an airliner overtaking me and turning onto 24R. BTW my slow approach caused the aircraft behind me to overshoot.
130 billion USD in Bill Gates’ divorce settlement, that could make 130,000 people millionaires!
London is finally playable once again
I laugh like a child, everytime… I know, time to grow up. Almost as good as Dildo, Newfoundland, Canada
Took a DA40 from Gatwick into London to see how good/bad my old Gtx 780 fared: bad! Very stutter, not really enjoyable. So I turned south again and looked for the nearest airport.
Somehow “Titsey Airstrip” caught my eye and I headed there. The airstrip turned out to be very short and I came in a little hot. On landing I overshot the runway, encountered a little pond and crashed into the water.
Continue VFR trip around Australia in C172. Today Tully Airport (YTUY) to Cooktown (YCKN). I had to change course a lot, because of clouds. But still better today than last week, when I had to land at Tully Airport, because of rain.
Or Blue Ball. PA.
