You watch a TV documentary of the Yukon territory and think to yourself that this would be a great area to further explore by plane. So you fire up your flightsim, select an airport in your desired location and want to go flying. In this case the default plane that loads with P3D is a Carenado C-172 with the engine running. You select a more appropriate plane, which is an An-2 with Yukon livery. And then, while the simulator loads your plane, you get distracted and walk away from your computer for a few minutes. And when you come back you see this unfolding right in front of your eyes.

Lesson learned. Next time I will start the An-2 properly from cold and dark

Love those big pictures of the thunderous AN-2.

Unbelievable! Good that you were away from your yoke, Bernd. Tragic story.

Some might be asking for a refund... :)

 

So apart from leaving an aircraft to its own devices on the apron, did you discover what mistake was made to cause the conflagration?

When I switched from an almost default-like plane such as the Carenado C-172 to the Sibwings An-2, I hadn't touched anything yet in its cockpit, that means that oil cooler shutters & cowl flaps were still closed. And when I came back, it was already too late  :sad:  :sad:

You didn't open the radiator flaps, the engine overheated and caught on fire. The An-2 is a very unforgiving airplane from the engine management aspect...  :wink:
