160 MPH PURSUIT ON THE HIGHWAY!

Recommended Posts

Today I was once again doing some test runs when I happened to see THREE, yup, THREE police cars running code on the highway! I quickly dropped down to about 500' AGL in my C172 and low and behold, I had to go full throttle in order to keep up with them and I paced them for about 5 miles at 160 MPH! hahahahaah It was awesome!

 

Some people have never seen the police car yet, but I was lucky enough to see three of them. It sure looked like they were in a pursuit, because the were relatively close to one another. If there was a car they were actually chasing, then that would've been icing on the cake.

Just pointing out that Police driving fast does not mean they are chasing a car. They could be going somewhere else, like a pharmacy robbery.

First, let me just say that I have the deepest respect for cops, and I'm not just saying that to kiss your butt, Efrain. :lol: But... I just gotta know... Do you guys have a buzzer that goes off every time the Krispy Kreme "Hot Donuts Now!" sign lights up? Hehe...

 

This stems from a town I used to live in down in GA that has a Police station and KK within line of sight of eachother, and yes, there are cruisers parked there at any given time. I sometimes think the cops embrace the stereotype and go there for a donut and coffee for their own amusement about what people think.

LOL I love donuts but gotta really watch my intake of them little suckers because then my duty belt won't fit. haha

 

The reality is that there is a true reason for the stereotype. Donut and coffee shops used to be the only places open during late hours back in the days. There weren't many McDonalds, convenience stores like 7-11, etc etc. If a cop wanted a quick snack and some hot coffee, the donut shop it was!

 

And yes, for the most part, most cops love to mess around with the stereotype. When I go and grab one from the display, I look around and if I see someone looking at me, I tell them "hush, don't say I word". Always gets citizens to chuckle.

convenience stores like 7-11

 

Go back far enough and you find out the story behind the name. When they first opened, normal grocery stores were open from 9 AM to 9 PM. The 7-11 stores opened two hours earlier and closed two hours later. I don't remember when they went to 24 hour operation.

 

Gotta love messin' with the citizens. :)

Here in Oklahoma City, the police team up with Krispy Kreme to promote some of their charity drives. Really respect that on both sides.

 

Glad to see you have a sense of humor Efrain. :-)

Was there any gun fire? Also maybe there is a video cam on the police car that can be accessed and viewed :rolleyes:

Are you kidding me? Talking about something that is part of XP is not on topic with XP and even borderline spam/troll? WOW, just wow. I think this is complete BS. The thread was humming along just fine until now.

LOLOLOL!!!!! :LMAO: What an idiot I am! I thought you were talking about the real world, not XP10. I thought: "How did this guy get his Cessna 172 to fly 160mph to follow the 3 cop cars anyhow?"

 

Moving it back!

 

I'm sorry! Forgive me for I know not what I do!

 

Kind regards,

Damn, thank you for ruining my "reading with open mouth" moment! :lol: I was totally imagining you flying above highway and looking at police cars. And then "wow, x-plane even has this stuff, but it surely looked better IRL" :lol:

They don't use radar guns from airplanes. Rather, they use a sophisticated stopwatch and markings on the highway to figure out how fast someone is going.

Also, pilots can relay to ground units of possible speedsters so they can keep an eye on them while they approach the unit's area. Ground unit will usually shut off radar to counteract radar detectors and turn it on at the last moment.
