So, a morning start from Dubai, outside temperature's still about 30 degrees C though! I know the Burgh wasn't there in 72, but the apron could have been at almost any airport... :)  & I'm recreating a flight using modern scenery.

Some countries weren't as friendly to the RAF back then, so the flight had to be routed north over Bandar Abbas into Iran, then up through Iran, close to Tehran, into Turkey over Lake Van, south of Ankara turning south to go over the Med & Nicosia before landing at Akrotiri. NOTE - online flight planner (my quick and easy go-to) doesn't appear to have much in the way of picking your waypoints and/or VORs so I used the stock FSX flight planner to construct the route.

Dubai is rather big, isn't it?

There may be trouble ahead.....:)

Nope, over the tops and weather getting better. Lake Van in the background - not the tiny lake below the nose!

Cleared to land!

A bit floaty, but the brakes are rather powerful! Off to Marham next!

Enjoy!

Very interesting flight plan....

Indeed! I was going off what Tony Cunnane described regarding his return flight on the Lone Ranger to Singapore. I just zoomed in and out of the stock FSX map and picked likely VORs and intersections heading in the right directions- pure guesswork.

 

Great shots! Neat looking aircraft.

 

 

You guys might be able to tell, but I'm rather smitten with the fastest of the V-bombers :cool:

 

Thanks for the replies.
