And maybe some low level "Down and Dirty" terrain following thru significant terrain depending on attendance, conditions, and aircraft choices.



We'll meet at 8pm London time at Denver International - ICAO: KDEN. Find a place on the tarmac near/under the Tower. Please bring a fast jet from the FGUK Hangar capable of cruising @ 480 KIAS at altitudes up to 17,000'. We'll cruise to ICAO: KLSV - Nellis Air force Base near Las Vegas where we will land and refresh/refuel. We'll leave Nellis and head over the mountains to ICAO: KSUU - Travis Air force Base near San Francisco as our final destination.



Comms will be on TeamSpeak as always:

Please be prompt and practice in yer aircraft of choice as the terrain may be difficult and we will be running fast/hot and pressed for time. Hope to see as many as possible and thanks in advance!

Is the F-16 allowed? (Not the FGUK one).
If yes, then count me in with that, else, F-15 ACTIVE.

Sorry, Mav....I'm trying to use only FGUK Hangar aircraft for FlightNight Adventures now.

I *do* plan to host a "bring yer own creation" night sometime soon the idea being everyone needs to bring/share something that lives on their computer.

But for this weekend only FGUK Hangar fast jets please.

Model is old. Withdrawn from public hangar, possible licensing issues. If you have an old one, it likely will not fly due to YASim changes. You might be able to drive it around on the ground though, at least until you prang its nose its something or other....

On a personal note - an F-16? Really? Again? (Dons old man's hat) C'mon, broaden your flying horizons! So many to master, so little time. Try a Tonka. Or Algy's EF2000. Both excellent. Both markedly different to fly, both from each other and the F-16.

And besides, they're cooler too. B)

There's an Avro Arrow in the hangar; I might bring that :)

Flash (ah-ahhhhh)

You will undoubtedly run out of fuel. Probably more than once. The Arrow gulps fuel like there's a black hole inside it. You have been warned!

Hi All !!

Has the FGR or any F-4 variant been updated recently ?
I only ask 'coz i haven't been out in it for a while and I haven't downloaded one of them for ages.

Also, I'm gonna be running the latest FG version to see if it continually crashes like the older version, starting from scratch....again.

I tested the route and developed the flight with an FGR2. Flew it in our F-16CJ as well and it rocked. Not sure the Arrow will keep up even if you can make it fuel wise.

Hi Porcius,

I've flown both recently in my overhaul of the splash system. Both seem to fly just great, as long as you're using the YASim version. I edited the hangar versions to strip out the JSBsim ones. as FG changes are now causing syntax errors that stop it getting into the air.

Of course, not that you'd want to sully yourself with JSBsim uncrashables....

Main reason I'm using a lot F-16 is because I develop it on almost a daily basis, it being my main project with high standards.
It's not that I don't like flying other stuff, I just like to fly it and enjoy it a lot that I'm always in the need of flying it. Ok I think I messed that up but never mind.

Anyways, I'll try to find something fancy to show up with.

Magnificent! Coming outta your box in style.

Points to note. Fly it a bit beforehand to learn its performance envelope, especially hi-G. Or you will die.

Well done ;)

I'd like to join tonight - with hardly any fighter jet experience. Managed to get the Su-37 from FGUK boneyard up into the air and back to the airport alive, will it be worth a try?

@Oswald

Might try the Su-27 from the boneyard
( www.fguk.eu/index.php/hangar/summary/18-...neyard/420-su-27v1-0 )
Had an outing today, flies just fine and visually pleasing too.

Thx, though I guess I shall try the SU-37, had several patterns with it (well, kind of ...) and might be able to manage.
See you tonight!
