    A bunch of Sabres (is that the right collective phrase?!) on the ground at Bali. Great fun flying with you all guys, thanks!

    Well done Sim-Outhouse
    An average of 23,849 miles of flying and we all got 'home' within an hour of each other.

    Well-planned and a great job of flying!

    Now let's get ready for next year!

    Perhaps a "rattle of Sabres" would be correct..

    Another shot of the Sabre flight into Bali. Didn't get the camera out quick enough to catch everyone though, Derry had ducked out already.
    I pushed the engine damage all the way down to 14% trying to catch up to Tom and Rob for some in-flights but never caught em.

    My only screenie from the race, from the King Air team flight. Good stuff that.

    For what it's worth, I didn't leave because I wanted to, FS2004 gave me an out of memory error. I suppose part of it may have been where I took almost 100 screenshots along the way.

    Well, if nothing else I did get a few pictures of everyone on the ground in Bali.

    Edit: Okay, pictures and the Duenna log from my flight are attached.

    Thanks Mike. It was fun and the Sabre is a pretty nice formation aircraft.
    Maybe that's fuel for a future idea, after all we got 3 of them down with a spread of 2 secs and the fourth 24 secs later (hampered by having to fly it NORDO - that's NO RaDiO - and a delay getting his free formation pass)

    Thinking "Operation Leapfrog" - mass Sabre flights across the N. Atlantic in winter...

    Here's some kodaks from the race:

    Flight from Choisel (AGGC) to Nauru International (ANYN). Nice day over the South Pacific, but solid thunder storms the whole way!


    Dawn breaks over the eastern Pacific, on the way from Hawaii to Monterey, CA


    Final approach to Monterey (KMRY). This is the moment I broke out from under the solid overcast, at about three miles. You can see Rob and crashaz parked down there, giving me weather updates ("you can't see doodley squat"). Five seconds after I shot this pic, the fog closed in...


    The Required Extra Credit flight...

    Here's a couple more:

    Waiting at the airport at Mariel, Cuba (MUML) with Fliger747. We're about to take off for Haiti as soon as Martin (Spookster67) gets down.


    Here's Martin coming over the numbers in his spiffy F-86 Sabre Jet.


    Here's me in my WBS P-51B. I spent a good deal of this flight looking down at the fuel gauges for the wing tanks, on the floor of the cockpit!

    Last kodaks.

    En-route from Del Caribe Intl Gen Santiago Margarite International Airport (SVMG), Venezuela, to Piarco International (TTPP), Port of Spain, in the King Air B350 Team Flight. You can see some of our team flight shipmates ahead.


    Final approach to TTPP. Somebody said there were giant trees off the approach end of the runway here (what a surprise!) so I tried to make a high & steep approach.

    Some pictures from me.

    Sabre flight from the start



    Final for KMRY at the end of a wildcard. Thankfully on an ILS, as it was fogged in.

    Team flight in the KingAir 350, with some team mates just visible around me.



    Another wildcard - the 747 into Cape Verde, with the sun just rising.



    Along the coast of Africa heading for the Canary Islands in the FS Sea Fury.



    In formation with kowalski65 in a pair of DH Hornets heading across Italy.

    I've landed as wingman to Milton in the DH Hornet, as Tom and Rob head out in F-86 Sabres on the final leg.



    A low pass at Bali, while team mates land and complete our race.

    You guys had it easy :-) In my first F-80 flight with nice clouds from a storm below, my video card choked.

    The rest of the flight though uneventful had these mysterious clouds around me. :-)

    Sometimes the clouds were trees, sometimes gauges, sometimes ground textures.

    Fortunately, the landing was uneventful.
