FlightNight Jan. 5 2019 - Fast Jets for First FlightNight of 2019!

31 Dec 2018 15:19 - 05 Jan 2019 14:07 #41292 by Vodoun da Vinci


This one is all about starting the New Year by visiting some rather nicely developed airports in FlightGear. Not necessarily "Fancy" or Popular but well worth a visit as they may be out of the way for many FGUK Pilots!

We'll meet at 8pm London Time at ICAO: LGKR - Corfu International Airport on the Greek Island of Corfu. Please bring your choice of Fast Jet from the FGUK Hangar that can maintain 400 - 500 KIAS to altitudes of roughly 10K'. A reliable autopilot as well as Terrain Following will come in handy as well. This is a hint that we will at times being flying low, fast, and dirty to observe some the the a fore mentioned airports. We won't land at all of them.

We'll depart LGKR and overfly: LAKV, LATI, LAGJ, LYPG, LYTV, LDGU, and land at LDSP for refresh/refuel. The second half of the Flight: Leave LDSP and overfly: LDZD, LDRI, LJDI, LJPZ, LIPQ, LIPS, LIDA, and land at out final destination of LIDT.

Comms on TeamSpeak as always:

Standby for details and I hope to see as many as possible for our first flight of 2019!

I think I'll need a submarine instead; LGKR is completely submerged

Looks like another one ending in my local area :cheer:
Is the other Eurofighter (not Algy's) allowed for this one? Else there's a Tonka IDS calling for a ride.

I'd prefer to stay with FGUK Hangar aircraft only.

A note on the unloved-by-some F-35B....

Seeing that there is no FGUK repository for it, I've added additional livs tot he GitHub repository at github.com/FGMEMBERS/F-35B

Still mystified as to why an aircraft that was part of the FGUK stable is now gone from both the Public and Boneyard Hangars, yet still hangs around in the Dev hangar. Even old, unmodified Dave Culp aircraft are in the Boneyard. If there's any logic in play here, I'm blind to it. Since I have an odd affection for this aircraft, and it's going to be (IRL) around for a good long while, it would be nice to see some enthusiasm to improve it rather than write it off. Or we could be like the British government cancelling the TSR program...just sayin'.

So, Voodoo you can nix the request by Porcius to fly the F-35 as it's technically not in the FGUK (non dev space) hangars. But I judge ye a kindly soul and not likely to do that for this flight.

Consequently, my mind has been made up. I'll fly in solidarity with my porcine friend and also pilot the F-35.

its has feck all working animations for the engine gubbins and just looks wrong over MP.
No one was able to provide me with a copy of the last public version to put the download back up, so it got removed.

Sorry dudes, I thought I got it from FGUK Hangar ?

I didn't realise it wasn't there - I'll slip into something more comfortable from the Hangar then.

See ya laters.
