Saturday Flights

November 28, 8pm UKtime, 2015: Volcano Watch

Details are very sketchy at the moment, but a volcano is close to erupting. Apparently, this should be non life-threatening as long as enough data can be gathered to organise evacuation in time. It is vital that aircraft are available to transport boffins and their instrumentation around in the coming days. We will also be needed to help clear the area of people.

Engineers are in the area, with heavy machinery, frantically trying to build some makeshift landing zones. These may or may not be ready in time. So it will call for pilots that are capable of landing helicopters in difficult circumstances. Above all, it will call for pilots who are capable of installing custom scenery  But even if you don't completely fit the bill, you can still come along for the ride. If you can't fly a helicopter you can still come along as an MP-passenger - and probably get some good screenshots/video. And, even if you can't install custom scenery: it's still a nice area to fly around in.


Route: First half (8-10pm UK time) Starting at W27, Woodland Airfield, runway 32. See this post for more details


Comms will be on TeamSpeak, see: www.fgukmedia.co.uk/index.php/forum/radio-comms


Watch this space so we can go and watch the volcano! See volcanoes.usgs.gov/observatories/cvo/ for the general location. Probably before the time of most here but I remember this happening
