@Swift. I'm unsure if that can count.

I couldn't find it in an SR-71, so I jumped in an F/A-37 Talon with 75% fuel and cruised south from Lihue at Mach >4 until it ran out of fuel (~20 minutes later) and I still didn't find it, checking the 100 mile radar monitor every 10 seconds or so. I also tried to open the .fld in scenery editor, but it wouldn't open.
Have you got the ground object? Need Patrick's ground objects installed. That course should find it though.

I reckon it counts, but you don't get mad rep points like you do if its a stock plane.

Eh, it wouldn't take a massive amount of skill to pull it off in that Talon, but its worth something I suppose.

Using Scenery editor 2013 0416 the coordinates for Patrick's airrier are -188712.069,19812.000,172334.830
On the .fld download file you will have to delete the starting couple of paragraphs between and including airroute and end airroute.
Also, you will need a liberal .stp file and at least the airrier of Patrick's ground object pack.

BTW: All are eligible and encouraged to submit their own arraingement of stock ground objects. Be famous or infamous...lol
I suggest you start with a full download pack from the server website and use scenery editor 2013. Fun and educational.
Best of all you can't complain about whats on the server, cuz it will be all your fault!!! ... lol

It all works now; I was missing Pat's ground pack in my current installation; to shorten the trip I just created a starting point out near the carrier.

Landed a stock F-16 on it so far, just going to see if I can land a few other things on it before I post a video.

Edit:

Here we go; used the stock F-16, stock F-22, stock F-15, stock NASA F-104, and a custom variantion of Shutter's F-35A (doesn't necessarily count, just included it anyway) - I tried to do it with the GAC F-111 and B-1B as well, but I couldn't quite get to 65,000ft with enough momentum; or rather, I managed to do it once with the GAC AU F-111G, but it made the NASA F-104 landing look good, so I tried again, but then couldn't do it.

That's pretty nice Dragon. I never tried it while the airrier was moving tho. :?
