Well, just got home, actually it wasn't a bad mission at all. Take off out of Albuqurque, up past Alamosa, then over to Lake County airport, just a little VFR airport in the mountains, supposed to be taking supplies to firefighters up there. Came down VFR (marginal), forest fire smoke everywhere. With such a small runway, and the marginal conditions, it was quite challenging. Then to top it off, had a problem with #4 prop, went to mech gov, directional control problem on touchdown, engine flameout, gonna have to spend the night. A very good sim ride, learned a lot, especially about CRM.Now for the rest of the week, system refresher, lots of emergencies to worry about. That's when they'll see me sweat.The sim has got a new wrap around visual screen, very cool, but the visuals just can't compare with FS2K2. I know we complain about the visuals and such, but the C-130 sim here, it's great and all, with motion (let's see someone's home cockpit have that), but the visuals still just can't compare.Lobaeux
