What are some of the crazy challanges that you have accomplished in FS
? Last night, I did my first super hard challenge. I know a lot will talk about flying into that mountain in Peru! Well anywho, last night I downloaded a Mesaba BAe 146-200. I set weather to thunderstorms, wind, and 1/8 mi visibility. I could barely see anything! I taxiied to the runway at MSP
, and I noticed that aircraft were departing and arriving like crazy (I think the airport in real life would be closed in a situation like this). So I got in line with about 4 NW
757s, World Travel 747, Pacifica 777, Airwave Dash-8, and 3 NW
A320s. I was on the taxiway, and I could barely see the aircraft on the runway, the condition were that bad. After a while, it was my turn. I had a great takeoff, and flew downwind, base, then final. I joined the localizer along with a USAirways A319 and a Continental 737. The USAirways A319 landed and exited. It was my turn. I came in fine, and then got hit by severe winds. I was about 100 feet above the runway and I still could not see the runway. Finally it came in to sight, and I was a little high, fast, and off. So I reported a missed approach, and went around. Meanwhile, the Continental 737 landed fine.
So I took another downwind, base, then final again. This time I joined with a Pacifica 777, and an American MD80. Pacifica 777 landed, and exited. Finally it was my turn. I was crabbing to fight the winds, I was getting closer and closer, then I saw the runway. I was centerline, I touched down nicely, and slowed down on 12L. I exited, and I saw the American MD80 slow down on the runway. I thought it was sweet to totally depend on the instruments, and not look out the window for basically the entire time! I'm going to try another one of these soon! Anyone else have a crazy challenge that you'd like to share! It'd be cool to read them!
