For Holger and team re Glacier Bay v2

Recommended Posts

HolgerI was using the NE water runway at Juneau Intl. I was wondering if you put a "cookie" in the form of a "dead-head" underwater there?I've hit it twice on take-off. The jpg screen shot might not show the sparks in front of the pontoons as well as the bmp does.I told the insurance company that there was no way that I could see it. They are sending the bill for the pontoon repairs to the airport manager :)Great scenery by the way ! http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/168350.jpg

Hi Daryl,you've hit the AI runway, which is invisible but needs to be designated as something other than water (i.e., concrete) to work correctly. See the Glacier Bay manual, page 16, sixth item on the Known Issues list. I realize that the AI runway is difficult to avoid in the Juneau floatplane pond because of space limitations. If you zoom in on the GPS map view you will see the location of the AI runway so maybe that'll help minimizing the unexpected "bumps".Cheers, Holger
