Call me a traitor, but I would like to join, if I may. I realize I was the flyer of the last leg of the Round The World Race a while ago, but I would sure like to join this tribute flight, if I may be permitted.

Here is the flight plan for the flight.....

 RICHMOND, VA International to Charlottsville, Va. its about 70 miles. The first flight will taxi out at 9AM. followed by the second flight 10 minutes later, each flight will consist of 28 aircraft, and each flight will depart Richmond VA, once all 28 aircraft are airborn.....

 The total amount of flights will depend on the number of planes and pilots who sign up......Anyone who is unsure if they can make the flight, please wait until you know for sure if you can make the flight......

 We are currently working on getting someone who can make a video of the flight to be posted here at AVSIM.

Once the flights arrive at Charlottesville - Albemarle in Charlottesville, Va. Where the flight will end....

 Other things like flyby's and Missing man will be left up to the pilots......

 As for anything else that is done, that is up to you.....You can stay and make a day of it with your friends and fellow pilots, or sign off.....

 Remember this is our way of giving our friend his own special sendoff.....

 

 Also if we have enough of each type aircraft, we will try and get them set to fly together....Mustangs, Lightnings, B17's, 172's, 182's, etc.

 

 PM.me if you can think of something i may have missed......

 Craig.

I was wondering, perhaps we could all chip in a few donations for cancer research in Tom's honour?

Thank you, and if desired I can go to the P-51 used for the RTWF or one of the other designated planes. I'm not great at the big guys but fighters etc are fine...

 This would be better left to the staff of AVSIM......

 I am sure they could come up with a way to take the donations.......Its a great idea......

Just a thought:

Maybe the last group could execute a Missing Man formation? Diamond formation, Slot position pulls up and away to a vertical reverse as they go over the airport? Or Echelon formation, farthest from Lead does the same thing? Maybe just a formation fly over of Charlotsville?

Heck, any of the groups, all of the groups, some of the groups? Even one is a huge tribute, in my humble opinion.

Just a couple of thoughts. None essential. I just go by my own military experience. And yes, I knew a couple of pilots who...umm...did not return from flights? To me, a Missing Man flyover is a huge tribute to send a pilot off on his last, greatest flight, as the saying goes.

Thanks for letting me join you all, by the by. I appreciate it.

Trucker;

 I won't be able to join the flight, however I have been working on photo real scenery and AFCAD for KCHO on and off for a few months. As CHO was Tom's and my 'home' airport, I had written Tom about it shortlty before he made his condition known. I had hoped to finish it before . . .

Now only the tower/fire station are missing and night textures for the terminal. I will put together what I have and upload it as a very Beta/WIP prior to the flight so you all will have a place to land.

Awesome Jmbiii.

I think that will be fitting.....Thank you....Post the link here for everyone and i will get PM'S sent out to everyone, about the airport....

 Craig....


Hey everyone....

 Here is a small change in the flight........1st. we will be doing a flyby over where Tom's home would be, below you will find the cords for it.

 2nd. their will be a scenery of the airport that Tom used as his home airport....Check back here to get the download for this airport....This is where we will be ending the flight.......

Here are the cords for his home.

LAT/LON of Toms home, it should be:        

<ATCWaypoint id="AVSIM">

            <ATCWaypointType>User</ATCWaypointType>
            <WorldPosition>N38° 6' 47.52",W78° 26' 28.31",+000499.00</WorldPosition>
            <Descr>Tom Allensworth</Descr>

I see any aircraft is allowed but wouldnt this cause an issue with this many aircraft if there are jets involved with little props?

 

Also will we be able to get ATC event involved will this be on vatsim or no?

VATSIM has a "hit squad" of visiting controllers to work events. being this is only a week out, you'd need to contact them ASAP.

 

I'd love to control the event, but my skills are VERY rusty at this point, and I was a RADAR controller in real life, some 20 years ago. VFR would not be good for me to work. :)

 

But contact VATSIM Hit Squad. I am sure they can find some.

 

As for my own flight, I am thinking of what and how I wanna fly this. Will post my sign up later...

I am so very sorry to hear of Tom's passing.  I have relied on Avsim over the many years I have been involved in flight sim.  His contribution to our passion cannot be measured.

Really?

 

I would think the Airspace is large enough to accommodate everyone, including us flying the "little" Props.

I didn't mean it to be rude I'll be in a prop too....what I mean is there is an issue with 28 aircraft departing from one runway in an hour with multiple types if there is no procedures or ATC to control flow...

Brett,

 

I think it would also depend on how many will be flying Online vs.Offline. In any event, I will do my best to fly right, and be where I'm supposed to be... hopefully!

 

Have a good Flight!

Their will be no problem with that......All planes will taxi out, and get airborn.....Once airborn, they will circle until the rest of their group is in the air, then proceed to the destination airport.....That is If they want to do a formation flight, If you prefer not to, then you are welcome to proceed to destination.....
