FlightNight 9th February 2019 - Brits(ish) abroad

07 Feb 2019 09:44 #41895 by Avionyx
Dos san miguel por favor waiter, FGUK are going on a bit of a jolly.



We're even bringing some of our International friends with us so you can experience the delights of where the British like to go on their hollibobs.

Starting at Palma de Mallorca on the beautiful island of Majorca we will drop some light alcopops off overhead Ibiza shortly after departure and then make our way at about 300kts over the Costa del Sol and fly along with the Med at our side until we break at 2100 UTC at Almería for a bowl of patatas fritas and stock up on sombreros.



After our siesta we will slow things down to 150kts and take in the sights of the slightly posher end of the Costa before defying the rules and approaching the somewhat disputed home soil on The Rock at LXGB

Due to the difference in speed between the segments I'm going to say the only allowed aircraft on this flight are to be Harriers - your choice of variant.



Start time will, as always be, 2000 UTC

Questions?

As a frugal Northener there will be a communal block of lard that will be distributed, try not to leave too many hairs on it for the next person.

If you are not going to high, I'd like to join with the A400M?!
It can go 300kts up to FL120 but wouldn't be as agile as a fighter...

Cheers chrisW

P.S.: I'd come with this Version:

I'd like to come (in the GR3) but it's unlikely at this point

ChrisW,
If you're uncomfortable in the Harrier i suppose that would work.

There is some code on the dev mailing list that adds auto hover to the GR3 - but that would be cheating I suppose :D

Yes it would. The white elephant has it but not the harrier.

My (weak) defense is that they developed the f-35's auto-hover system on a two-seat harrier.

BTW i've extended auto-hover to control forwards/sideways speed and heading, as well as vertical speed. Info and diff is at: op59.net/harrier-auto-hover.html
