What did you do in MFS today?

Another flight over the ice sheets of Greenland. Stopped when I encountered some clouds AND some solid land. So looks like I’m almost done with my cross over Greenland (Savage Carbon).

I should be somewhere here, having flown 48 minutes today:

Photo book

I had a good stay on the ice sheet, but it’s time to go:

If my QNH information is correct I’m about this high on the ground:

Some vague hints of clouds on the horizon:

After two hours (spread over two flights) of nothing but Ice Sheets and clear skies, it’s good to see a cloud:

No choice, have to dive under the clouds:

Looks tricky, might as well put it down on the Ice Sheets. Only 24% fuel left, but I come prepared with the equivalent weight of full tanks as a payload. Loaded that up in Kulusuk before I left for the crossing.

Ohare to Heathrow in my first shot at the 787…and made it. Needless to say I left the cockpit. My bad.
I set up the fms for arrival at 27r. It had a couple weird arrival waypoints that the plane couldn’t bank sharp enough to get to so was circling wide. I tried deleting them but deleted the whole arrival. Had to regroup and line up for visual and land. Lucky it was clear and at night. Easy to find runway. Plus the autopilot was a struggle. Once working simply do not touch it.

Funny. Those are my main routes and I just left NA for Europe for the first time. Try a stop over in Kelowna if you are not too big or try a 737 in castlegar. They use to fly them in there.

Melbourne (YMML) to Alice Springs (YBAS), and spotted this gem.

worth a listen btw

Flew the Southwest Airbus A320NX from Pittsburgh PA (PIT) to Chicago IL (ORD). All in all smooth flight expect the glorious ATC failed to allow to me contact tower to get cleared for the approach and landing and next thing I knew I was 5,000 feet above my runway.

Short 10 minute loop around and canceling IFR and requesting full stop landing did the trick. The passengers didn’t know lol.

Climb out of Pittsburgh PA

Somewhere 34,000ft in the air

Not the best shot, but flying over Chicago approaching O’Hare INTL

Are they from that area? I notice area appropriate names, some humorous in other places

I think the correct answer is, it’s complicated. The band members don’t appear to specifically come from that local region, but the importance of Uluru to Australia’s indigenous people can not be understated. I would wager it is certainly a nod to them.

Yothu Yindi (Yolngu for “child and mother”, pronounced /jɒθuː ˈjɪndi/) are an Australian musical group with Aboriginal and balanda (non-Aboriginal) members, formed in 1986 as a merger of two bands formed in 1985 – a white rock group called the Swamp Jockeys and an unnamed Aboriginal folk group.[1][2][3] The Aboriginal members came from Yolngu homelands near Yirrkala on the Gove Peninsula in Northern Territory’s Arnhem Land

Sure looks like it: More worthy than BOOKE and DANNO on the westerly approach to O’ahu.

Just finished my longest and best flight yet. Flew IFR Edmonton CYEG to Vancouver international CYVR with exceptional ATC coverage from VATSIM. I know to most two hours isn’t a lot, if anything, but man was that rewarding. Got some nice screenshots of the sun setting over the clouds, and was the landing ever smooth. A bit off the centerline, I’ll admit, but smooth nonetheless.


Somewhere in-between the Rockies and Vancouver.
Cheers and happy flying, folks.

I only use A320Neo from FBW so far…they are the most “realistic” aircraft in MSFS so far. And i’m an Airbus fanboy… Untill now, the A330 was my favourite “heavy” , thanks to Project mega pack ( they also have Boeings).
But since someone has solved the mirroring problem on the 747-8, I think i might reconsider…until the A380 from FBW will be released :wink:
Would an A320 be able to land/take off in Castlegar? I would definitely try Kelowna ! cheers for the tips

everytime i do that flight…well…actually mostly to or from Calgary, I get shooked like cocktail over the Rockies :woozy_face: :woozy_face:

It was a turbulent flight for sure!

The A320 has been my go to. Love it also. I only stepped away to head for Heathrow so needed the range. Problem is when I get home from work it’s dark over there and I like real world. Castlegar is only 5300 ft so no room for error landing and no straight in approach. I landed the crj there without thrust reverse and used it all. I actually can’t believe I have not tried the a320 but top of my list now. Definitely no takeoff abort I will find out tonight. Kelowna for sure.

From my Air Journey World Tour: Leg 13: Luang Prabang, Laos (VLLB) to Siam Reap. Cambodia (VDSR) , to Singapore (WSSL)

A long way down, and the tops of the bad weather extended above FL440. Tough penetration into cloud and rain on the approach, but we broke out into some clear patches, and a double rainbow.

Flew the Alaskan A320 from Bozeman MT (BZN) to Portland OR (PDX). Live weather and time. Flying out of Montana was very beautiful with the light rain and clouds. Along the way the wind had some pretty heavy gusts but overall smooth flight. One of favorite ones so far.
