MD-11 lightning strike! (kind of)

Recommended Posts

So, there I was at 39000 feet.... 

 

Yesterday morning I'd set up a flight via online flight planner for the Lufthansa Cargo MD-11 (iFDG) from Singapore, stopping at Dubai, with a further flight plan over to Manchester. (Don't care if it ever was/is an actual route I just wanted to fly some long haul cargo from the far east).

 

Anyhow, I'd got about 2000 NM into the flight then ... BOOM.rumble!! Thunderstorm outside my house..... and the power goes down. no uninterruptible power supply on my PC :( 

 

Had I saved the flight close to it's current position? Nope. Reload the tri jet half a continent back from whence she came. Oh well..

Thanks.  That reminds me; I have to replace my battery in my uninterruptible power supply :)

Bruce,

 

I noticed your virtual airline link; you might be interested in one of the other MD-11s I fly :)

It's for the IFDG (FS2004, but it works for FSX:SE in DX9), but apparently it's by Michael Pearson...
