any ideas how the team will handle this Airmanship-Challenge? is it similar to the Airlift? i.e. team has to get all airports starting either from Torino or Z

all that counts is that each of the fields has to have one successful takeoff and one successful landing in any order.

That was fun, but I must apologize for the error with my realism settings. Rookie mistake. When I did some test runs, I did not look too deep in the text files. Glad I could help keep the baton moving. Tired today, but looking forward to pitching in. Go Team AVSIM!

That P-51 is a FAST BIRD! Looking at your text file, you had a very good average speed.

No Prob Buzz,The whole point of wingmen are so that if the main pilot messes up were not compleatly SOL. I'm glad I could help out and get my very first baton carry "Kill" mark on the plane :-)BTW I'm sorry I didn't get anymore screen shots with you. After take off you were just kicking my butt for speed. Those tanks make alot of drag don't they :-)

I just finished my first ever RTW flight. Even though the whole flight was over water and it was dark, it was still pretty interesting, at least the later part. About half-way, I began seeing some lightning up ahead, I actually thought it was quite suiting, since I was flying a Lightning :-lol. When I then came closer to the lightning, the plane started to rock around violently. I got adviced by Sven to turn off the autopilot if the plane started to move around, so I did that, and tried to keep the plane on altitude and course by hand for a while. I also tried to take some screenshots of the lightning strikes, and actually got one, out of something like twenty attempts :), and it wasn't even a very good shot :(. After I got out of the lightning storm, I thought: "Whoa, hope it's smooth flying after this", which it of course wasn't. Then I had a little scare when I looked down at the altimiter and thought it said 8600':-eek , so I pushed my stick full forward and then noticed I was at 7600' :-shy. Then it was smooth for a while then another lightning storm, that held on pretty much until landing, had good smooth wheather on final though.When I started o write this, Sven pointed out that there was a beautiful sunrise in FS, so I started up my plane and flew away to get some screenshots of it.Screenshots will be right up, have to switch to IE, Opera won't let me upload pictures here...edit: Oh no, seems my screen capture program has stopped working, didn't get any of the sunrise photos. too bad, they looked really good... Very well, here are the rest of the screenshots, attachment1 is the lightning one :DAnd I'm sorry for the low quality of them, I should have turned the quality thing in the screen capture program to max...Klas
