    Spookster's Tigercat Trip

    I'll be posting my flights in this thread. It's the Milton Shupe / SOH F7F-3, flown in FSX, and using FSRealWX Pro.

    Down safe at AGGA. Good visibility, but a bumpy ride at times on the descent.

    Nearly made a stupid navigational mistake. I set off on a heading of 312 degrees, and wondered why I couldn't see the destination island ahead of me. Then I realised I should have been on a bearing of 289 degrees! (312 was for the previous leg). Dohh! Anyway, left turn 30 degrees and it all started to make more sense then...

    Down safe at AYBK, just. I forgot to set my fuel load correctly for the leg, so I flew it with 100%, and landed with 84%. Nearly stalled at low speed over the threshold.

    Down safe at GSP, once I found the field! Clouds were right down on the surrounding hills, vis was low, and then I lost the signal from the NZ NDB so I wasn't sure I was on bearing. Missed the field slightly to the east, but decided I'd flown far enough so started circling and looking through holes in the cloud. Suddenly it appeared, right beneath me, but no chance of lining up to land so I had to fly a circuit... at which point I lost it again. More circles and then found it, at which point the clouds lifted a little. Phew!

    Next leg departing now, GSP to HFD. Probably heading for Wewak on the coast and then following a radial from the NDB to make sure I find this one OK, after my experience at Gusap!

    Down safe at HFD. Good visibility in the end, so no problems finding this field.

    Leg aborted.

    Had to deal with real life event - left flight on autopilot but ran out of fuel and ditched. Will re-fly from HFD.
