Could you post the confirmed aircrafts to the other forum, and maybe a reminder that the event is tomorrow.


10 minutes ago I returned from geocaching expedition around Little Danube river with found score 10/14. But done :

@SHM-- Thanks for the invite. I can fly with you. I'm bringing the 757 variant C-32J. Sounds like fun!

Houston, we have problem with 707 !
This bird can't use center tank. I found nasty solution, but it is unrealistic - in the Fuel / Payload dialog use Leveling button. Is there some realistic solution ? Because center tank fix from https://github.com/sanhozay/707 doesn't exist now :(

I just did a test flight and everything went very well. ...Until I got into the canyon with a stiff tail-wind on approach for 05. There is no metar for NZQN that I could find from my normal sources, though I did get the QNH from Siri, so I don't know how fast the wind was blowing but the windsock was stiff straight-out. Halfway down the glide slope I was still doing 220kts, so I had to abort and do a tight orbit to the right and get lined up again. Got the speed down to 150 with flaps, but the descent rate by hand was a struggle. That wind was pushing hard. I crossed the threshold at about 80 feet, but my flare let me float just too far down the RWY. I got it stopped, but would like to requisition an extra 500 feet of landing strip. :lol: :oops: :roll:

Of course the approach to 23 requires the skill of a contortionist in a tight container... :shock:

If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall
