Mach Loop challenge personal time records

FGUK's Mach Loop - where jets are pushed to the limit

Today I've been flying the Mach Loop for some time (inspired by yesterday's conversation on Operation Red Flag Crew's Mumble channel where a few of them were interested in flying thru it as a group to have fun since it's a great attraction for military pilots in FG) and I thought, also by looking back at the old discussions on the topic, that we should create a topic where everyone's keep track of their best timed laps in the Mach Loop too see who makes it in less time. So this can originate the Top 10 fastest pilots flying the Mach Loop.

Download the Mach Loop Wales AI scenario HERE .

To make this better I've thought also of some rules so we don't mess up.
1) Each personal record must be wrote here as a reply to this topic and followed by a screenshot showing the MPchat displaying the AI chat message which communicates the ending time of the challenge.
2) Each attending pilot has to say what aircraft was he flying when he made the personal record.
3) A personal record is valid only if made when connected to MP tracked servers.
4) A pilot can post more than a personal record if he improves his time, even if made with another aircraft.
5) There are no restrictions to the aircraft choices to attend this challenge.
6) If you have a past screenshot showing your record you can submit it.
As soon as someone post his record, it goes into the Top 10 in the highest position available till somebody else makes a better time.

An example:
6 ) PilotX (Hawk T2) - 164.12s - 2016/03/28
TOP 10 FASTEST PILOTS ATTENDING FGUK MACH LOOP
1 ) J-Mav16 (Tornado Gr4a) - 143.10s - 2017/03/16
2 ) Neilson (Tornado Gr4a) - 143.83s - 2016/04/01
3 ) Richard (F-14B) - 144.01s - 2016/04/14
4 ) Raider1 (F-15C) - 144.24s - 2016/03/31
5 ) enrogue (Mako) - 146.75s - 2016/04/14
6 ) VooDoo (A-4E) - 158.88s - 2016/04/08
7 ) Timi (Jaeger dr400-180) - 637.01 - 2017/03/17
8 ) Sanni (UH-1) - 850.44s - 2016/04/04
9 ) .... (...) - ___.__s
10 ) .... (...) - ___.__s

11 ) .... (...) - ___.__s
12 ) .... (...) - ___.__s
13 ) .... (...) - ___.__s
14 ) .... (...) - ___.__s
15 ) .... (...) - ___.__s

So, what are you waiting for?? Jump in your favourite jet and fly it like ya stole it in the Loop, you may be one of the fastest! :woohoo:

Here is one from last night.

27.3.2016, 23:13:08, Neilson, tornado-GR4a, 148.85

mpserver15.flightgear.org/modules/fgtrac...GHT&FLIGHTID=6574086

I will get screen shots next time.



There might be a place for aircraft that need to be listed in there own category ie: Bae Hawk Ts

Jets that can do a airspeed of 630kts to 655kts will be one list.

These speeds are a hint too :) you just need to know when they are needed.

Well I wanted to make a general Top 10 that's why there are not aircraft restrictions. Maybe we can do a category Top 10 later.

There is a Mach Loop log folder crated from it on you computer.
you got under 149 i think

Its where the ufo Export and TerraSync are placed outside of the main FG folder.

search MachLoop-times.log

Looks like this inside

Yeesss! B)



146.49s again in the F3!


A quick note to all: this top ten is not about doing the best closest times to the fastest people, it's about challenging yourselves trying to make your best personal time so you can have a position in the Top 10, then you can improve yourself by pushing your aircraft to the limit (till you break the sound barrier and the timed lap ends...).
Until yesterday I was one of the slowest people running the Mach Loop, 210 seconds was my average time hoping to get in all the rings and look at now (surely Mark helped me) but I've reduced my time a lot. It's all a matter of practice and willing to make better every time you fly through the freakin' rings.

Tried it in the Supermarine Death trap. Fine until you start to get twisty with it. Then I lost count of how many times it tried to kill me before it actually did.

Just to inform you, Raider1 of Op Red Flag set the new record to 144.24s in Richard's F-15C, there's even a screenshot of it.
