Overstressed

Recommended Posts

Guest GeoffC

I was just doing a flight which ended with a MS overstressed failure. I have never had this before in the NG, and recently upgraded to the 800/900, which may or may not be a coincidence. It may be a one off, but flying VNAV in the past, as I was today has sorted any speed related issues.If this is unique to me I'm more than happy to carry on, do the flight again, and put it down to experience. I would just like to know if anyone else has had a similar issue.Just for the record I thing the NG is a great aircraft.Geoff

Geoff? Is that your name? You did not describe anything about what happened. Overstressed I assume you were diving and pulling? What exactly were you doing? [h4]Best Wishes,Randy J.

Randy,Yes that is my name why do you ask? I was under the impression that it was normal protocol in this forum to sign your name.In answer to what I was doing and Ramon's question, I was simply flying level at FL350 using real weather (Activesky 2004). I had set the speed in the FMC to .82 which I have done many times. I then noticed I was getting overspeed warnings so I reset the speed to .80. Shortly afterwards I get the "Aircraft Overstressed" message. Apart from the speed issue I was not aware of any other high G manouveres. If I remember correctly the wind was around 135 kts.The only other point is that I did a complete re-install of XP and FS2004 at the weekend, and as such everything is default.If this is a wierd one off I'm happy to forget it, I was just surprised that I've never seen it before and I've had the NG since it's earliest version.RegardsGeoff

FS has a funny way of changing wind directions very rapidly. If a tailwind that goes 135kt suddenly changes to 135kt headwind, you're in a big trouble since it adds 135kt to your airspeed.A very unpleasant bug, however not PMDGs fault.
