Flying Penguin

Evening Approach to KSAN [XP10, PMDG DC-6]

Recommended Posts

Just a few shots between KLAS and KSAN, flown on PilotEdge.  Bit of an eye opener trying to fly this bird fully /A and it really didn't want to slow down so I ended up vectored all over San Diego to get low enough for the Loc 27 approach, much to the controller's annoyance :)

 

I think I might be in love.... (with the DC-6, not the controller!  :blink: )

Very nice!


Don't know, but to me MFS looks a lot like the "Barbie" of desktop flight simulation...

Doesn't matter - I like to play with Barbies...

Thanks  :smile:

To be fair, she was wonderfully polite and professional, but you could clearly hear the surprise in her voice each time my inability to keep up with her plans required a new one!

Wonderful shots. I haven't picked up the DC-6 yet as it seems too complicated to fly (but I think it's time to bite the bullet)

Today's controllers don't know the climb and descent capabilities of an old propliner. (Maybe in Alaska they know) Their descent advices require often much too steep descents. I regularly fly the DC-6 with my sim; and I regularly begin my descent much earlier than required by ATC; I just request a lower cruising altitude many miles before actually beginning the approach.

Thanks all  :smile:

Seriously, it's not that hard, if you use the engineer function it's pretty much stick and rudder flying plus a bit of VOR management if you don't use the GPS navigation, you don't even have control of the throttle for much of the flight.  Hardest single bit (that you can't automate) is the autopilot which is.... "full of character".  But once you've figured the quirks, it's fine.
