Ive never flown a Boeing 747 into Aspen before - the biggest aircraft ive flown in or out of there is a BAe 146-200
I'm sure I read on another forum somewhere that it has been done in FS before - so i thought id give it a try!!
Anyway, it was a nice day at Denver, and after I recieved clearance from my parking spot over at the cargo ramp, I taxied to runway - 07. My cruising alt today will be 18,000FT with winds blowing from the East.
If you look just above and to the right of my tail you can see a United flight arriving on rwy 17L.
Note that I use 5 overlays for my Denver airport - so have all runways in use!!
Just reiceived T/O clearance
Just about to rotate
Climbing out, Gear up. I then performed a 180 deg turn while climbing to FL180
I soon passed over Eagle Co Regional Airport while descending thru 13,000FT
I received ILS clearance and was told to descend to 9,800FT
My final approach was kinda scary, skirting the trees with my landing gear!! Because the LDA is off-set, i had to do a 'Kai-Tak' turn before touchdown!!
Just managed to touch down safely, but not quite on the centerline (cant be perfect all the time)
As soon as i hit the deck it was full reverse thrust, speed brakes and of course landing gear brakes too
Finally, i came to a sudden stop at the end of the runway
Lets now hope that for my return trip i can get that bird outta there!!
Thanks for joining me on my trip!!
