I've tried 5 times to get to the aiport after picking up the object at the "snake" ruins. I can't even make it within 15 miles of the airport. The airport is at 3700'. the highest I can get is 4700' then all heck breaks loose. How'bout a tip or two;) Also can you change the type of aircraft in the missions? Bob McDuff

All I can say is climb,climb,climb. Full throttle, feather the prop and don't forget to lean your mixture in the other engine. With that I usually arrive at the airport a couple thousand feet too high.

...OR, you can just edit the flight file to the new plane you want. Obviously, it needs to be a twin and have floats. I've enjoyed the mission most with a Beech 18 on floats.

It took me twice to do it. I was not ready for the 'take over' of the controls. The second time, I got in the air asap and climbed like at the best climb speed and was careful not to overcontrol the 'take over'.I was actually so high, I had to do a 360 on final and approached from the mountain side of the strip. I still had to force it onto the ground but did manage to stop about 3/4's down the runway.So it is possible.duttonhttp://dutton.fsblogger.com/

Were is the flight file and how do i change it? I found out the problem i was having. On my flight yoke the throttle would not go 100%. I have to push F4 to get 100% throttle, that way I get enough altitude Bob

Flight File is located in:FSXMissionsBackCountryAmazonAmazon.fltBe careful to copy and paste the aircraft information exactly correct. It must match the aircraft's cfg file. (suggest you do so with a copy and backup the original in case you mess up.)

I can't get that to work. I went to FSXMissionsBackCountryAmazonAmazon.flt made a copy and back up. then replaced the line in the Amazon.flt file Sim=Grumman Goose G21A paint3 with thissim=DH_Dash8_100, from the aircraft .cfg of the Dash8. Is ther more a need to. When i try to run the mission in FSX i get a error of "fail to initalize DH Dash8".

"When i try to run the mission in FSX i get a error of "fail to initalize DH Dash8"The Dash8_100, as default in the airplanes folder, is for AI (traffic) only. You cannot fly it until you add a panel. As it is not meant to be flyable you get that error message.Jozef K. http://homepages.onsnet.nu/~jkusters/signature.jpg

Well,I didn't even get to that point yet. I never seem to have enough space to turn around my plane at the temple. How on earth do you make tight slow turns on the water in that thing???Thanks in advanceJeroen

I've done this missions several times and completed it all times.You must stop the aircraft on the runway for the mission to be successful - at least that's what I've found to be the case.I received a Voodoo mask and a Cursed Idol replica, but never have these show up in my Pilots Log later.After the Temple of Doom starts falling apart, I just sat there and watched it crumble. Then line up with the lake and take off.Fly with the Rudder Off and use Full left rudder after the right engine quits. Also would like to have an "ejector seat" for that stupid archeologist we brought along.Turning this plane on the water sucks!:-spacecraft

At the temple, I cheated a little. I taxied just to the right of the flat rock where the girl is standing, put the gear down and went right on to the dry land. You can't go very far on the land or it'll say you crashed and fail the mission. Once on land, I spun the plane around so it was facing outward and taxied back out into the water so the mission dialogue would resume. That made for an easy getaway.

The guy says "check gear down" at the end of the mission but, mine won't go....my batteries are dead, everything is dead. I tried manual extension (which should work too), but it's not working....no landing gear....riiiight....i guess water it isHelp?i tried restarting engine 2 as well no go though...nm I got it...even though my gear wasn't down....I landed safely...it seemed from the sounds that my gear was down but it wasn't who knows,..

I am having trouble finding the snake temple. I land on the water my compass says I am there but nothing happens.

The best thing is to save a mission then you can keep trying without having to go back to the start and you still get your medal
