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 .
So here we go to Italy in the F-24 Tornado Wild Weasel.

Welcome to Italy Very Happy , eventually!

OMG Welsh... nice looking 737 there... I am always amazed that the USAF uses older boeing versions... they need to step up to the plate and get a 737-800...


By the way, my guess on the band is King Crimson.

I spend most of the time like that! Very Happy
The next flight is just a short one (about 150 miles) to RAF Valley in North Wales, the RAFs fast jet training base, in an F-5.
Couple of RAF pilots taking a look Rolling Eyes
Wait for the Eurofighter to pass before beginning taxi

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.

Well you coulda said welcome HOME... being in Wales hahaaha.

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.

Not to mention it had no wheels on it.... seriously, I would line up on the runway... no wheels under it. I guess it used repulsorlift technology from Star Wars???
