Lively Tromso, challenging Bardufoss, picturesque Narvik and then the legendary Lofoten Islands. What a beautiful setup.

 

Sorry to say that I have been drafted into my patriotic duty (on Revoltin' Americans Day) to visit a friend's lake house and watch the fireworks. Will have to fly this one offline and miss the deep insights and delightful banter. See you next week. Best wishes to everyone.

 

BTW. Nice narrative. And really spectacular turnaround time by that SAAB Viggen!

Skål, mine venner. Alt Mike har vært den samme. Selv om jeg håper å se deg. Det vil være 50 / 50. Jeg håper å ha snacks for alle som dukker opp - hvis jeg gjør det.

Take no notice of him. He was trying to unload his pickled herrings all evening, last week! They'll have gone off by now. :wacko:

roman,

that looks like it came straight from a local smorgasborg farm.

best eaten fresh & accompanied by a glass or two of juleol, (a dark malted beer ).

eaten in the traditional manner wearing the viking horned helmet & carrying the two bladed battle axe.

A very welcome addition to out little band of aviators.  :BigGrin:  Did Bert tell you we speak mostly BS? 

 

Don't forget to let us know where you got the paint from, so that we see you correctly.

Mike,

 

First, welcome!

 

To answer your question, the use of a Comanche is entirely optional.  Just fly something that you like to fly!  We nominate an aircraft every week, usually a popular FSX model, just so we all have an approximate idea how fast we're aiming to go, as it tends to be a more enjoyable experience if we stay together.  So any GA aircraft that can cruise around 140-160 kts would work fine. 

 

Apart from an aircraft in mind to fly, the next thing you need is to join us is Teamspeak.  If you don't already have it, download it from the link below and log in using the server address.  There are usually a few of us there a few minutes before 1800 if you would like a little more help getting set up.

 

AVSIM RTWR Teamspeak - Casual Flights Channel

Teamspeak Server Address: ts.teamavsim.com

 

Final thing - for the multiplayer to work, we all have to be on the same version of FSX.  In our case, this is the original Microsoft boxed edition.  This is just a limitation of the different platforms - FSX-Steam Edition and P3D are not, sadly, compatible with original FSX multiplayer.

 

Hope to see you at 1800!

I should be all set.  Flying the route now to get a basic idea of it.  I started in the Moody but will swich to the Beechcraft and see how that goes for speed.  I'm on FSX and have flown with you guys once before, so I should be good.

Not quite true, I made a flight (so this was my second) with the this team a few months back but never seem to be available when flights are scheduled or I would do it more often.

 

And here is a screenshot of our final stop at an isolated strip "Rost", with the flying team all sitting on the tarmac, after some 3hrs of flying, boy did we badly need some ale, a restroom and some food. That is my repainted Comanche in the foreground.
