A Long Flight.....

Post by TB1 » Tue Jan 10, 2012 11:44 am

As I am posting this my C-17 is speeding out of Hilo to Akita on Megadodo. Dragonheart R1 booked a cargo shipment on the HAVA website to Akita and challenged me to do it so now I've got an hour of the flight left going 340kn (which is the top speed) at 15300ft on auto.

He was even nice enough to make me a flight plan:

Wish me luck....

With my flight, I was cruising at 310 kts at 15,800 ft. I followed Vector 265 up until I reached Tohoku, where I corrected to 270. My map doesn't take into consideration when I make the first bearing change, so all the numbers are variable.

@Hawkstar, I would do it. Heck, I may even do it this weekend in one sitting.

I would like to try that with 0.1 miles vis at night... The screenshots would be less glamourous though.
I'm back.
