I was watching this flight yesterday on FlightRadar24 as it tracked south to Budapest. In the evening, caught the exact same a/c (I forget the reg) as it crossed the Irish Sea. Such a pity for Malev and Hungary.

I just finished a 6hr 30min trip from FRA to KJA on LH Cargo MD11....it's frickin' cold here!

Right now I am flying from EGKK (Gatwick) to GBYD (Banjul, Gambia) – Boeing 737 series 800 Thomson Airways livery...

It’s one of the longer B73NGX flights I think, UK to Banjul is 5 hours 50 minutes return is 6 hours and 20 minutes...

Fun!

I recently bought a PMDG Boeing 737NGX (worth every cent) and have been putting it to good use:

Auckland-Whenuapai-Auckland a few times in an Air New Zealand -800WL .
Auckland-Wellington in the default PMDG livery -900WL.
Christchurch-Queenstown in an Alliance Airlines -800WL.
A few flights around Rio De Janeiro in the GOL10 years livery (PR-GTF) -800WL.
Helsinki-St Petersburg in a NordStar -800WL.

Prior to all this, I began a flight in a Hong Kong Airlines 747-8i (Skyspirit 2011) from LAX-HKG. The flight was going very well until I needed to go to work. I left the flight with the autopilot activated and the aircraft at FL380 somewhere south of Alaska. When I returned home after work the aircraft had crashed somewhere between Nagoya and Osaka. OOPs     

Next flight: St Petersburg-Arkhangelsk in the NordStar 737...

I'm rather new, both to A.net and the FS world. But I usually do rather short flights. Typically EHAM-EGLL or KLAX-KLAS. Flights that can easily be done in about an hour. What's the charm of doing transatlantics? I mean, it can't be that interesting to watch the autopilot search for the optimal thrust setting while cruising over the atlantic?   Or am I just being weird here?

On topic: I'm on my second approach attempt on a very foggy day in EGLL, coming from EHAM in a KLM 737-800. I was told by ATC to go around on first attempt as a BA 772ER got a liiittle too close on short final

Well, I used to fly short legs all the time too. Lately I really enjoy flying the long runs. Of course you don't sit in front of your virtual cockpit for 8 straight hours, that would indeed be very boring and lame. I take off, climb and a little into the cruise, I leave my computer and do other stuff. Inbetween I check if everything is alright, do the occasional step climb or look outside the window if I'm just overflying something interesting.
The "charm" of that is that you land in a different region of the world and really feel like you have flown there, because 8 hours have passed since you took off and you could have flown that onboard a real plane in the same time as well. I personally don't like using timelapse, it just feels weird if you land in IAD 1 hour after you took off in LHR...

AMS-LHR sounds cool.
Tomorrow I'm flying from ANC to KIX in my FedEX MD-11F...that's some 8hrs again.

Yeah, I can kinda relate to that one. I did one flight from KLAX to KLAS in the early morning. Climbed out of KLAX over the ocean with the rising sun in my face, turned all the way around and climbed over the surrounding mountains with the sun starting to clear the morning's haze, eventually landed in the desert of Nevada. It was quite nice to see the ground turning from green and vigorous to desert

Did Denpasar to Sydney with BA Concorde G-BOAF, then Sydney to Noumea with Concorde G-BOAF. Currently still in Noumea. This evening, might get to Hawaii if I've got enough range to do it.

Er, yes, looks like I can do that easily with about 800km in hand as far as range goes.

The approach into Noumea was annoying, first vectored for RWY29, then it changed to RWY11, so had to back-track around. Prefer RWY11 anyhow - it's an easier landing without having to do the "slam dunk' style approach over the hills at the other end.

Off from school and before I start work for the summer have had some nice time off. Since May 10th have flown.

MIA-TPA-DCA-STL-MCI-LAX-SFO-LAX-LAS-LAX all with the PMDG NGX
Then got in the old but trusty PMDG 744 for LAX-AKL
Then AKL-SYD in the NGX
SYD-NRT in the old in two ways RFP742 in FS9
NRT-HKG NGX

Just landed about a hour ago from HKG-SEA nice 12.5hr flight with the 744. I am also for the first time using FS2CREW for the NGX, the voice version and it is awesome!

I plan on the rest of the week getting into SAN and also doing a flight from SEA up to KIT, SIT and JUN with the 738.

Just over halfway from SYD to AKL, decided to use a NZ 763 instead of a NZ 777 or EK 388 for 2 reasons. a) The Project Airbus 388 is such a slow climber! b) NZ doesn't use 77Ws on this route in real life. 500 NM out of Auckland currently, cruising at FL350.

Left Noumea, went to Honolulu. Rotated off runway 29 in Noumea at 193kts!

Loaded up with 94.3T of fuel as well. Covered the long distance in 3h:19min, with a maximum altitude of 60,125ft (yes, the magical FL600), and the lowest temperature along the way was -82C at around 52,500ft. As I got further north and further east, the temperature increased to around -70C.

Arrived in Honolulu on RWY04R, touching down at around 155kts. Parked at the stand with about 12T of fuel left over.

I've just started yet another RTW trip. Here's hoping I actually make it this time furtherest I've previously made it before giving up is Santiago and that's going Eastbound from Australia   . This time I don't have a pre planned routing and I'm not restricting myself to the one aircraft. I'm just going to decide where the next stop is on the whim.

First leg is Alice Springs (YBAS) - Brisbane (YBBN) roughly a third of the way there now. I had a nice 98 knot tailwind earlier now down to 93 knots. from Brisbane I'll probably take my Jetstream 41 down to Sydney (YSSY) via either Coffs Harbour (YSCH) or Tamworth (YSTW) then something else across to New Zealand.

If I was a little faster, you might have seen a very high up, fast moving contrail above your plane.  

I'm going to head from Anchorage to Thule AFB next.

I've just started yet another RTW trip. Here's hoping I actually make it this time furtherest I've previously made it before giving up is Santiago and that's going Eastbound from Australia  

Still doing the RTW so far I've done Alice Springs - Brisbane - Tamworth - Sydney - Queenstown - Christchurch - Auckland mainly with the NGX except YBBN-YSTW which I did in the J41.

Right now I'm at S31°42'12" W177°10'48" enroute from Auckland - Los Angeles in my 747-400X still got 5194nm to go or 10h39m. This shall be my longest realtime flight eclipsing my previous record from Melbourne - Singapore.

After KLAX i'll either head north towards KSFO or CYVR or west towards KPHX or KIAH

Hehe  

Completed Hall Beach to Dublin, barely made it off the short YUX runway on my empty 319! If the flight would've been full, no way I would've made it  

Did DUB-SOU earlier today on my BE Dash 8-Q400. Continuing on to ORY now.

Hi!

I just completed an IFR flight in Washington State. I flew the default Fs9 Cessna 172 from Bremerton National up to Fairchild International at Port Angeles. The flight started at around midnight as I was flying in real time and real weather. Weather was a bit clouded in at Bremerton with low visibility but got clearer. Cruise altitude was meant to be 6,000ft. but ATC directed us to 8,000ft. Some lovely views. I flew the ILS approach to Runway 8 at Fairchild International.

Many thanks,

Pierre

Hi!

Quoting Speedbird217 (Reply 24):
ell, I used to fly short legs all the time too. Lately I really enjoy flying the long runs. Of course you don't sit in front of your virtual cockpit for 8 straight hours, that would indeed be very boring and lame. I take off, climb and a little into the cruise, I leave my computer and do other stuff. Inbetween I check if everything is alright, do the occasional step climb or look outside the window if I'm just overflying something interesting.
The "charm" of that is that you land in a different region of the world and really feel like you have flown there, because 8 hours have passed since you took off and you could have flown that onboard a real plane in the same time as well. I personally don't like using timelapse, it just feels weird if you land in IAD 1 hour after you took off in LHR...

I totally agree. I don't do medium and long haul flights very often but you really do feel like you've arrived somewhere new like Chicago after flying for 8 hours. Like the poster too I don't use timelapse but watch a movie or go jogging or something while in flight, checking every now and then to save in case of crashes. The flights take a while to plan and fly but can be very good experiences.

Besides that, here's where I am now. I have gone back in time to 1996 and completed an America West flight in the afternoon from Phoenix to Albuquerque in Fs9.

My last flight was 25 days ago! - I flew EZY3WN from Belfast to Liverpool.

The following day, my FS laptop was pulled to the floor with some force by my 8 month old son! Huge crack up the side of it, somehow, a few of the keys pinged off and broke! And the keyboard started typing backwards!

Laptop is down in Manchester being repaired, and hopefully will have it back in the next 3-4 weeks.

I almost finished finished my RTW I was taking a Captain Sim 727 on the final leg from Darwin (YPDN) - Alice Springs (YBAS). I was on on short final when the program decided it was the time to give me "Flight Simulator X has encountered a fatal error". As I was using the civa INS I'll have to restart the leg from Darwin.

Have a lot of work coming up so took a rainy Sunday to do some NGX flying. I was in Alaska for a while then went down to STL. Flew STL-LAS Saturday afternoon. Then today did LAS-LAX-MEX good flights. MEX felt unusually real, it was hazy and warm with a nice amount of traffic including some heavies at the gates.

Now I'm climbing to FL360 finishing off the day with MEX-MIA. The 738 might have been a bit too heavy. Even with a 27k bump I ended up using the whole runway! It was 27c GW of 156k. MEX is 7,000ft elev. Also made a big mistake in not turning off the bleeds for this type of takeoff.

Took a FX MD11F for a ride today from STN to GVA, but was bored with non-talkative boxes so decided to do a GVA-NCE-GVA rotation in an LX A319! Beautiful mountain views.

Does anyone know of a cargo trip that goes off the map a little? I wanna fly the MD11F or 767F on a cargo RTW with both short hops and long hauls but to as little primary airports as possible. Real life would be great but I'll settle for imaginary.

Cheers for any help!
