Mercy flight - UKFF to UUOO

Recommended Posts

This trip was loosely (very loosely!) based on a report of an EMERCOM IL-76 mission. The plane delivered 40 tons of supplies to Simferopol (I believe the max.payload is 100000 lb - 50 tons). The return trip flew 52 refugees to Voronezh.

This is the return trip.

 

The tough transport plane is ready.

Goodbye Simferopol (need to get FTX Vectors or something to sort out airfield elevations! :( )

Visual for RWY12. A little high... however, we'll soon sort that out....

Told you we'd sort it! Not too many screams; not that many windows in the back!  :Devil:   :Shame On You:

Everybody out.

Preliminary inspection of the nose gear indicates it is fine. It's Russian. It can go off road. Not a problem!
