    Annnnnd we have a crash. Small ridge jumped up out of the clouds, and a sudden wind shift dumped my airspeed, and they bit me. Hard.
    The baton is free at ZUUU,
    Duenna to follow momentarily
    Pat☺

    My face is VERY red, and my wings and fuselage are VERY green.

    Life happens, unfortunately.
    Just a note: your "baton Time" shows as 20:42:32 which indicates it was running for quite a while when not flying. Have to remember that when a flight is done, to make sure you trun off the "Arm" and "Baton Carrier" buttons and Reset the Duenna or it confuses the server.

    BTW, I just flew the same leg in the Posky B747SP to see if I could find the cause of my previous self-destructs. Good news, it ran fine with same bits of software running. Bad news, the big bird was only 2 minutes faster than the Tigercat over this distance.
    A replica baton is now resting at VYPT

    I have the Baton VYPT-VEBD in the FS9 default B744.
    I just hope the plane doesn't do THIS... or the computer THIS...
    Fair skies and following winds,

    Baton is free at VEBD.
    Suggest VILK-VIJP-OPKC routing. All three fairly straight inbound ILS shots. Let's ease into this. There's plenty of airports in Africa where it's nothing but the plane, the runway, and your hand-eye coordination. Stack the odds in your favor whenever you can.
    Plus, I couldn't resist going with a regionally appropriate livery!

    I have the Baton VEBD to VAKJ in the Posky Boeing 777 FS9 default WX

    Lets see if I can get this thing off the ground.

    It was a bit of a challenge getting it into the air. Too long since I have flown a tube but we are moving along very well.

    GPS says 28 minutes but it will be longer than that.

    Screeny

    It is dark outside

    Note I am setting up to ride the beam down. LOL I never could land these things by hand.

    Hmm, PC issues, so I'll bail out and leave this leg to Pat.

    About 30 min out. Nasty headwind at higher (>22,000') altitudes.

    Rough landing indeed. No wind, just thick fog. I am sure the airport is below minimums. I had to go around once, but I finally saw it at about 100' AGL. Made it, but not pretty

    Good luck all!
    Pat☺

    The landing must have been rough. You are required to go to the "quiet room" for concussion protocol testing.

    Why, srgalahad, you must be mistaken.
    It's the right Duenna...
