Pro Member Chief Captain
Welshflyer Chief Captain

Well, i've done WWII aircraft and US Navy so i may as well do USAF. I don't know if i'll do a full tour or just till i get bored Confused . Anyway here's the first trip in what i think is the most awesome aircraft Boeing ever designed and built the almighty BUFF.

Before start at Nellis AFB Nevada in the B-52

Environmentally friendly this ain't

Those eight powerhouses push us into the sky and take us to cruise alt

Nice model this, it's got wrinkly skin like me Smile

Nevada gives way to greener climes

On approach to Boeing field in Seattle

With the spoilers the braking chute is deployed

Down safe, time to plan the next Very Happy !

Razgr1z912, don't know if i'll be able to get there this time! Sad

Right, Alaska it is then Smile wonder what it'll be this time Confused Let's take a look through the big square doors.

The B1-B Lancer should do the job nicely for the 1,400 mile trip (roughly).
Full afterburner and climb out

Cruising to Alaska

On the way i tried some low level at 100ft but i was'nt happy with the shots so i ditched them, so on approach

Welcome to Alaska (wonder if i'll say that everytime i land Rolling Eyes )

Starting up outside one of the Coast Guard hangers at Kodiak USCG Station

Set up and ready to roll

Climbing out of Alaska

Thank you for your comments gentlemen Very Happy !
Sticking with the tanker theme we could'nt go without mentioning the classic KC-135R which we'll be using today for our flight to Tokyo. Razz
Just to show we really are in Hawaii Smile

A long taxi to the active

Thought i was going to run out of runway, this thing needs a lot of it.

Turn back over the city to intercept our course to Tokyo(or just to show this nice scenery i found at Flightsim Laughing )

At cruise Alt

The view an incoming thirsty fighter would have

As we crossed the Pacific,darkness fell

On approach to Haneda (honest Smile )

Touchdown (after a missed approach Embarassed )Good job lolo's not in the Air Force she'd probably have something to say about that Shocked Very Happy !

Welcome to Japan Very Happy

Pro Member Chief Captain

Those are great shots Welsh but I thought you'll more or less stick to the air force bases so just in case you don't come up with an idea where to fly here's the list of all U.S. Air Force bases home and abroad.

Pro Member Chief Captain
Welshflyer Chief Captain

Thanks VF Very Happy , i'm going to try and stay primarily to the bases but good addon scenery for them (especially those not in the US) is a bit sparse,apart from Europe that is, but i have got one for the next leg to Osan in South Korea! Smile
Thanks for the list, that will come in very handy Very Happy .

Pro Member Chief Captain
Drew B (belgeode) Chief Captain

I think that is a good idea there Welsh... and I love the KC135... our local air force boys are the 911th airlift and the 171st air refueling wing... based right at KPIT. I got a lot of respect for those folks.

Can't wait for Korea...

Btw Lolo says hi.

Pro Member Chief Captain
Welshflyer Chief Captain

Thanks belgeode Smile , there's going to be a short delay in going to Korea as i'm taking a little detour. In keeping with trying to mainly use Airbases i travelled on the excellent virtual Japanese transport system the 23 miles to Yokota Airbase.
Here in the hanger was a Hogwart....(sorry, that's Harry Potter) a Warthog or A-10 Tankbuster.

So after startup we taxi along the flightline for the trip to Nagoya Int'l/Komaki/Stewart Pearson Airbase

Looking back along the flightline

Over the mountains to Nagoya

Arrival

As with many Japanese Airports you have the military one side

And commercial the other

Taxi to parking on the military side

nice welshflyer Wink o and where did you get the ai traffic?

Thanks ace Smile , it's mostly PAI or WOAI apart from some static aircraft that comes with certain airport addon scenery!

Thank you all for your nice comments Very Happy !
Finally we leave for South Korea in an aircraft being put in place at night so Kim Jong ill does'nt know it's there Shocked .
Start up and taxi 10 mins before darkness falls

Bit hard to see this if you're an incoming fighter

Unless this happens

Just after this it all went dark

Descending into......

and arrival at Osan

Time to hide this before the morning.
By the way, anyone think the B-2 is a back engineered UFO Shocked ....perhaps Very Happy Rolling Eyes

Pro Member Chief Captain
Drew B (belgeode) Chief Captain

YES!!! reverse engineered UFO... maybe they took pieces from Megatron when he was locked in ice.

I love the spirit all the same... and welsh... stop being so hard on yourself man, your pix beat mine hands down!

Talking of reverse engineered UFOs, the next flight was to Prachuap Khiri Khan AB in Thailand Very Happy .

A couple of A-10s safely tucked away

Follow the Warthog

Thailand here i come

Which one is the any key? Doh!!!

Welcome to Thailand Very Happy , i forgot to say it in Korea Sad

Shame i can't find any Thai Air Force AI! Sad
If you're wondering why i've got the "parking brakes on" banner up it's because the tags,ammo box, bomb rack and ladder only appear with the brakes on! Smile
It may seem like i'm rushing a bit but that's only because all the best scenery i have is in Europe(mainly the UK), so i'll slow down when i get there. Very Happy

Thanks gents Very Happy , cheeks, i'll see what i can do about KSEA when i get back to the US Smile .
Next stop would be Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean, a British territory but basically just a US Airbase. For this we'd use the venerable C-130 (i found a texture for this in Thai Air Force markings,but as this is a USAF tour..... Smile ).
The Thai Govt asked us if we could drop a few people off on the way, so drop the ramp and let them on
One and Two running
Thanks but we're just leaving
So we left

Now i know we said we'd drop some people off but this is ridiculous.....

After our "guests" left we climbed and cruised to our destination

Thanks gents Very Happy , but i can't claim this as my own find as i'd seen it posted a while back( sorry but i can't remember who Embarassed )and i thought it looked pretty good , it belongs to the C-130 Royal Danish Air Force package here https://flyawaysimulation.com/downloads/files/2938/fs2004-royal-danish-air-force-lockheed-c-130-hercules/ second down, all i did was find a USAF texture for it.

Problems, problems, problems with this flight Evil or Very Mad i kept getting a runtime error and crashing back to desktop, i don't know if it's this aircraft or the HSP scenery i downloaded for Greece. So i deleted the scenery i could find as the first install sent it somewhere i can't find Shocked (hence starting from the runway), but it still happened ,but after a few attempts i finally got some shots.
I'm pretty sure this is a fictional texture and model (F-24) as i can't find it on airliners.net and they've pretty much got photos of everything Smile .

Thanks both Very Happy , bel i should have said welcome to Wales but as it's part of the UK i did'nt even think of it Embarassed (me being a Welshman too..!!).
The next couple of shots of the next leg i've kept to a minimum as i was'nt really happy with the overall quality of the aircraft, whilst fully functional and adequate it's not the best, so i tried to get angles where you would'nt notice but in some you can (sorry bout that!).
The reason i used this was, i was wondering what would be the quickest way of crossing the Atlantic, and of course there's only one aircraft for the job and that's the fastest aircraft in the World (that we know of, until they tell us about Aurora and pulse detonation engines.... Rolling Eyes ), and that is the SR-71 Blackbird.
So here we go from RAF Valley in Wales to Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland USA.

No worries though, awesome plane and flight there.. I got a blackbird but it sucks... I need one like yours. I was able to get it to like 45,000 then it started this violent shaking.

OK, the time has come for the final flight of this tour, after many various aircraft of the US Air Force we return to an old favourite of mine, the 707.
We made the journey from Seattle to Tacoma (about 21 miles) so we could board the aircraft at McChord AFB. When i first downloaded this and i saw it was from 1963 i thought it was the Air Force One that was used by JFK but then i realised there's no Presidential seal on the nose so it was probably just a vip aircraft.

Just had a look at the latest.... September? Great shots as always - loved the acrobatics on the LV strip. I'd like to see more with the USAF tour.
