a fun......challenge

crosscheck9 Guest

Hi,
If you know anything about me, you'd know that I fly strictly by the rules, but once in a while, its nice to let loose. Now, I could have taken a jet, but I figured out a little fun game...if you may....and I though you might like to hear about it. First of all, the prefered aircraft, would be the Aeronac K, with its ultra light body, yet slow speeds (37 hp). It can be found at avsim.com ...just type in "aeronca", and choose the first aircraft available.
NOTE: THIS AIRCRAFT WAS FIRST POSTED BY CDR, WE HAVE TO GIVE HIM PARTIAL CREDIT, RIGHT!!!, LOL

ok, now here what you do. Lets say you start off on a fairly large airport, say the default tacoma intl. takeoff, and stay no more that 200 ft off the ground. Navigate through the terminals as low as possible, (we suggest you lower realism). Now its not as hard as you think, but its REALLY FUN. Then, you can do this,...fly above the active runway 34R, and start a shallow dive at full thrust, (which is not much in this case) and aim for a touch and go, right before you touch the ground, lift the nose up, and do it again. It is suggested that you do all of this in the spot view, and press NP 2, to get the back view. As you can tell, I am humored easily, lol, but I thought this would be good for those of you who need a break from the jets. HAVE FUN!!!!

Hi,
I often try things like that, it's something different to do 😂 .I also mess around in the helicopter at big airports, thats quite fun 😀

Sometimes I go up in an F16 and intercept some airliner. Then I escort it all the way down to the runway...

Ooooo, I have never tried that before, I'll try that later. Thanks 😀

That would require a lot of concentration and skill that I only use on foggy, snowy windy ILS days.

I also don't like the fighter jets in fS04. Haven't had any positive experiences with them.

Yes, it can be quite tricky... it's a combination of flying your own approach and flying in a formation...
Since I am not a fighter pilot I don't know how you would do this in real life. Anyone got any ideas?

It depends on what you're following behind i guess. I would think that you would want to stay far enough away so that you can avoid the wake turbulence caused by the wings and engines, ir you would be right next to it so the turbulence goes behind?

Btw: I havent slept since thursday night, so i'm all slap-happy

Hmm, yes I guess in real life you would be glued to the wing tip to the other aircraft. In FS it's more difficult so see the small changes in speed and direction. I usually try and stay a bit behind and on the side. It's also quite difficult (for me at least) to change the view to look to the side. The F-16 is so sensitive that you have to be very easy on the stick...

Btw, what is "slap-happy"? I have a feeling but I'm not sure...

its when you're so tired that everything is funny, and you have a hard time keeping your ehad on streaight

Hi,
I tried cruising next to a commercial jet in a fighter jet, and found it extreeeemely difficult, and that was just cruising, I didn't even get to the approach 😂 I'll keep trying though....

I didn't say I was successful all the time either.... 😉
I think the most difficult thing is to estimate the other aircrafts speed and direction. It's a good practice though. Trying to follow at the same time as you keep an eye on your own instruments...

A while back I took my hopped up P-51 Mustang and harrased some 737s going out of Lindburgh field in San Diego,----had a hard time keeping from running into the 737s during the takeoff roll. I'd stay on their butts 'til about 10-12 thousand feet or so, then I'd go back and wait for another one to takeoff.

I tried that before, but after tailing the airliner for an interminable amount of time I had to peel away. 😳

I admit that it can be difficult to find one about to land. I usually start at a big airport and then go out and go around it in a very big circle. Then I intercept an airliner during it's descent towards the airport.

Hey crosscheck9! Why don't you become a member?

I was, but i forgot my password and nickname, and I changed my old email add. I tried to get it back with radarman helping, but I had no luck. It's alright anyways. This website's forum is perfect as it is, so whatever else is on this website would just me a side meal to me. The forums are the only place I would go to. But thanks for asking.
