    Willy's Wild Ride Around the Rim

    Setting in Darwin getting Navy 048 ready to start out later this evening. My navigator, Guy is in the back looking at courses and weather forecasts. It should be a fun and eventful flight to Edwards.

    GO NAVY!

    Heading to Bali (WRRR) on the SOH server. Hope I get there before the r/l storm gets here.

    Severe T-storm has about caught up with me so I've aborted the flight. Hope to start again sometime tomorrow.

    Looks like the worst of it has passed by for now. Going to try it again.

    Got tired of flying on the server and went offline. Although it is too dark now for AI spotting.

    Took off from Darwin at dusk for my first leg and to get a night landing out of the way. Pretty nice but lonely flight to Bali (WRRR). I was a bit heavy on fuel so I flew low to burn a bunch of it off. Not good for the economy run, but maybe next time I won't take off with a full load.

    Time this leg: 1:59:18
    Total time: 1:59:18
    fuel this leg: 2732.7
    Total fuel: 2732.7
    30 minute Country bonus for Indonesia

    Disqualifying myself in the Economy Run

    After reviewing my fuel usage in the T-33, I find that it is unrealistically long ranged (burns about half the fuel it should) so I'm not going to continue to participate in the fuel economy run with it. To do so would be unfair to those who are flying a more realistic flight model.

    Lost internet connection for a bit in flight and Real Wx was throwing a fit trying to connect to nothing. Might have caused some of those FS not connected errors in the text file.
