Luke, 09-15-06, YBWN-YBCS, 32, BGAN021, Howard 500/f-4, Ran out of time real fast so the howard became obsolete & I had to catch up to the others on the leg into Cairns so I changed mid-air to the F-4. Sucessful landing which is good for me to be able to say in a fast jet. The model I had was from the recon squadron that flew the first sorties during Gulf war 1. Actually the first US plane to fly a sorty was an RF-4C of the 117th recon according to the air-force websites. The F-4 is a nice bird to fly. Great dynamics.


Luke, 09-15-06, KRNO-KRDD, 32, BGAN021, Howard 500, GEBXA Gotta love this plane. I think if I remember correct, my comparison is the 57 Chevy of airplanes. Grunty, powerful, with heaps of style. There is an art to this plane. Freeware that's worth every MB of download from flight sim or surclaro. It has the racing checkers & nose-art on the fuselage.


Luke, 09-13-06, NV04-KSUN, 47, BGAN021, DC5, 1U8 A jointly produced civvy version of the liberator. I watched the documentary on the liberator and I love flying the privateer so this was good. Hard flying ion the mountains though. Rough nose down landing.

David R Evans, 09-23-06, YHID-YYMI, 35, bgak015, OS2U Kingfisher, Browseing the forum and read the chatter on GAAR 2007 so thought I'd do a trial flight of an aircraft,so i departed horn Island at 10:30pm no moon,no weather,10min.out realised how dark the night can get and even this short hop my navigation was way off,had to change course six times,when i finaly found the runway there were no lights but by turning off the panel lght. could pick up the white coral strip good enough to land. I think it will be a good test. especialy with some winds and weather added. and the kingfisher has the stol capability i was looking for.

John Lawler, 09-13-06, KEWR-KBOS, 119, bgad017, Curtiss-Wright Condor, American Airlines "Early Bird" Service #2, via KHVN and KHFD. The Condor, despite it's looks, handles pretty well. It's only vices (so far) are:- awkward to taxi with a tail-wind or side-wind (turns can turn into groundloops), and, although it will touch down smoothly on two wheels at well above the "book" landing speed, it then takes forever before the the tail comes down. Treated properly, it's fine.   ------------

Luke, 09-09-06, LSMI-LSMM, 59, BGAN021, baron 58, Flight with Thor...bush flying or should I say alpine flying in Swiss-land. Easy flight...the next was more difficult as I took the wrong valley and crashed climbing a pass however this flight not a problem. I generally try to stay away from the run of the mill aircraft such as the baron, and the usual cessna's. I like flying stuff that you don't see in every 2nd flight plan broadcast over fshostspy. Still enjoyed flying something mundane for a change.

Luke, 09-05-06, ENGM-ENSD, 53, BGAN021, AC-500, STG (ndb) Dissapointed with the scenery in Norway. Run out of time after waiting for everyone else who decided to come along on all 3 servers so I changed to a howard 500 shortly after take off and got a dose of real speed. I really enjoy a flight that ends up with so many aviators on so many servers all landing at one small feild. ENSD is an interesting approach being in a fjord.


Luke, 09-05-06, YBAF-YBBN, 27, BGAN021, Sikorsky S-70B-6, Nice bird to fly the agean-hawk...nato version of a sea-hawk/black hawk. A kick around flight to fill in time...The only egg-beater I usually fly is the osprey and occasionally a chinook, CH46 or uh-1 huey. I dont mind some of the early mil either.


Luke, 09-04-06, KLAS-KEDW, 27, BGAN021, ac500, Flight with Barry and a chance to tackle the issue of not seeing what other people are flying. We were both on an ac500 however Barry had a rockwell and I had an aero-design. Tried changing the ui for one model with fs manager but still he flew a beech MSA


Luke, 09-01-06, 2u7-13ID, 27, BGAN021, EP-3E Aries II, U63. Bush flying with Thor...scenery still on max...not having a good day.


Luke, 09-01-06, KSUU-KMFR, 8, BGAN021, EP-3E Aries II, Raised gear, raised flaps, dropped, what more can I say...


Luke, 09-01-06, 3u2-id41, 8, BGAN021, an-14 little bee, Ok so I had my scenery set on max...not good...kept having trees crash into me... tried it latter with normal scenery in an ac50 offline and wooshka, landed perficly


Luke, 09-01-06, 3u2-id41, 27, BGAN021, Dewoitine D520, OK so two things spring to mind here. The D520 flies differently in CFS3 than in FS9. Perhaps I should swap flight dynamics with the combat model. Secondly the vichy french fighter isn't made for bush flying. It's made for lucky hits against nazi fighters, for which it is my weapon of choice.


Luke, 09-01-06, FOOC-FBGT, 16, BGAN021, bf-109g, flight with thor. the ME109 was a pleasure to fly. handled the decent to Bata nicely.

Gryphon Rossi, 09-05-06, TXKF-KCHS, 199, bgas009, L-749 Constellation, 1st half of flight was smooth & clear last half was rainy & bumpy. Low vis and stormy in to South Carolina. Was a smooth landing and the passangers where just happy to get home a little battle worn from over doing it perhaps, over the long weekend in Bermuda. 


John Franco, 09-05-06, KHVN-KMMK, 24, BGAN011, C172SP, I gave a whack at the fairly new VOR runway 36 approach to Meriden Markham Munincipal airport. I think its a great approach. Practice makes perfect.

Rick Miller, 09-03-06, CYXS-CYQH, 180, bgak016, Twin Otter, Been a good trip to ferry new Twin Otter back to Whitehorse from Vancouver, despite #1 failure.  Ed and I got early start from Prince George for Watson Lake.  Decided to follow trench but climbed 7000 in morning fog.  Couldn't find any DME in this twin but picked up Mackenzie NDB to back up the GPS. Viz< 10 mi.  Picked up Wilburville VOR for comfort.  Hour into flight, partial clearing and went down to 4500 ft., northern area of Williston Lake very pretty.  Finbow strip CBF2 so pretty, we landed to stretch legs and talk to somebody-nobody there.  Then it was back up to 7500 with the chart showing no place much to land from there to Watson and with the trench bottom rising.  At 170 miles out of Watson and before 7500, the Watson VOR kicked in.  Picked up Finlay river with storm clouds closing in from west. At 70 miles out of Watson,river wanders north and we resisted the urge to follow--stayed course 300--down to 90 gallons. Went down to 4500 and Ed took control for landing.  At 20 miles out, a Lear announced on Watson advisory that he was 20 miles out from the west for 8.  He zipped in and cleared before Ed slithered in on 26 before the rain.


Barry Theodore, 09-03-06, KMDW-KUMP, 54, bgad012, Vultee, A nice warm up flight from American Airlines 1935 Flights (thanks to Bill). Flew this one on  WestCoast ATC. Came in a little hot but managed to stop just before the end of the runway.

Tropical stormy weather, out in the Atlantic trying to find a dot in the middle of knowhere. Trusting my crude intruments and VFR skills. Gently falling out the sky not seeing the landing strip untill under the 700' cloud cover. What a welcome site. Hope the passangers have a wonderfull stay at beautifull Bermuda!

I had to make a belly landing at BGBW airfield (Narsarsuag, Greenland) I am going to rest a while before proceeding to Iceland. I made a successful belly landing and FSPassengers rewarded me with 1430 bonus points and 0 penalty points. I made one low pass before i shot the landing.

John Franco, 08-31-06, KBOS-KEWR, 96, BGAN011, Curtiss Condor, The extra time that contradicts the original timetable is due to me fiddling with the fuel tanks. The imbalance cause me to run dry in the left wing. I made a fuel stop at Sikorsky Memorial Airport (KBDR) and was on my way to Newark with no further problems because i used autostart to keep fuel selectors in the "all" position

Rick Miller, 08-30-06, CAV3-CYWL, 30, bgak016, Twin Otter, Error in last report--emergency landing accomplished at 100 Mile House strip, not 108 as filed.  Ed caught a Beaver down from Whitehorse, ended up ordering an overhauled P&W with low hours for Twin Otter, flown in by a Shorts 360 from Vancouver to the 108 strip. There goes the budget for the holiday party this year.  They brought the P&W over to 100 Mile strip by truck.  Helped Ed change out, went through some checks, then off to Williams Lake to continue back to Watson then home.  Flew up to 9000 fast,to be safe, then right back down into Williams Lake strip so Ed could make some more checks on P&W.
