A ruined evening...

Recommended Posts

Ok it's not the end of the world but... I don't get to use FS much anymore, girlfriend was out tonight so had the rare chance to relax with a few beers and get a few hours in the MD11. What happened was the most chaotic sim experience I have had since I started simming.Flightplan was FAJS - HUEN on Vatsim. After spending a good hour in preflight I got my clearance to line up on 03L and advanced the thrust levers the same as hundred times before.After rotation I selected gear up and noticed all gear lights except the center gear were red, I cycled the gear a few times and then checked the Hydraulic page which was normal, looked outside and the gear was full down. So I'm thinking to myself I cant fly this thing for 4 hours to HUEN with the gear down, I ask ATC for a fix so I can hold and troubleshoot and he kindly vectors me to a VOR 15 miles from Johannesburg. Ten minutes later in the hold I decide that the gear is screwed I need to return to FAJS after dumping fuel, FMC says 11 minutes to dump to GW 490 but after 8 minuites I get a dump valve disagree and I cant get the GW any lower. By this time I have had enough so I request he vectors me back to the ILS03Despite pushing the gear horn warning Betty is screaming at me 'Landing gear, Landing gear all the way down, I elect for a full Autoland and on the rollout reverse thrust will not engage, Autopilot comes off but I still have 'Rollout' on the FMA and the machine is steering all over the place (autopilot is off) I somehow manage to get off the runway apologize to the Controller and Disconnect. So I check the failure menu and everything is normal, this aircraft is flawless 99.9% of the time so I dont know what happened?? Rant over I'm off out for a drink.

I can't speak about the fuel dump system since I have very limited knowledge of it, but just curious if you were running FSPassengers during this whole event?Other than that, it sounds like you had a hiccup in windows or a memory dump. Possibly also a packet block issue with Vatsim? Not sure myself how that would work, meaning if you would even see what I mean, or if only info is sent to vatsim and not returned back.

Hi Dan,FSPassengers was running but I have always had failures switched off, guess I will have to put it down to one of those things..

Thanks Robert, I should add the only thing that was out of the ordinary compared to all my other flights was I updated the Aircraft to the latest Nav database before loading the sim (it was about 4 months old). Don't see how that should make a difference but thought it was worth mentioning.Dan, love the pic! :(
