To anyone who likes bad weather

Recommended Posts

Flying now from Anchorage (PANC) to Seattle (KSEA). Weather in PANC for takeoff was "great", snow, windy, turbulent and my ACARS weather advisory is telling me extremely low visibility and bad landing conditions (and suggesting me to prepare to divert). But, ####, I'm not going to divert. I have very important passengers who HAVE to arrive into Seattle on time, or the world is going to end! }( }( }(So, join me if you'd like! BAW645 on way from PANC to KSEA.Btw. using ActiveSky V Enhanced with FE upgrades, so every is looking OMG :-)

I took off from KBFI and visibility was one mile, ceiling 300. I'm using ASE too.

That is nice indeed. My ASE says visibility currently KSEA 1/4 mile.

Thanks for the tip. I just completed an Alaskan Airlines flight from PANC to KSEA; had to do an autoland at KSEA - zero visibility. The Northeast/Alaska/Canada is really one of the best areas to fly in; it has it all.ricardo

Thanks for the heads up! I did PANC-KSEA. But unfortunately had a dll error crash after landing at sea tac. Great flight though, could barely see anything! The snow in anchorage was great

And what happened to me? I had a CTD just as I was intercepting localizer. Imagine that... I was so darn ######, I just wanted to throw this whole box out of the window (from the 3rd floor).Anyway, glad at least someone had fun!

World Cargo Route according to original BA schedules, by B747F. Although, F version isn't out yet by PMDG, but well, can't always have all the details :)

Well, I posted at 8:59 PM according to AVSIM. I think the time AVSIM shows is actually my local time - or am I wrong? Testing...

Almost... 7:20 PM shows AVSIM, 7:07 PM shows my clock.Anyway, my time is GMT is +1. I started the flight may 20 minutes before I posted. Do the math yourself :-) (I also hope to get the right WX from the datebase today, to try the flight once more).

Speaking of crashes to desktop: I think the simulator has an inbuilt detector that will randomly frustrate you. Just the other day, I was setting up PMDG's 747 for a flight from Heathrow to Toronto. Spent close to an hour getting started from cold and dark, programming the FMC, etc. After being pushed back I intend to set the parking brake again by hitting "Ctrl ." Instead I hit "Ctrl ;" which "resets" the entire flight. Back to square 1. CTD's tend to happen when FS9 senses you're at an important stage of your flight: You're getting ready to take off, or you're about to land. ricardo

EXACTLY that happened to me once. But only ONCE, cuz afterwards, I deleted the assignment and I believe it was also same like you, programming and thing and just wanted to press ctrl+.Yeah, I noticed. Must be some kind of Microsoft-Annoyance programming. Probably so that all users buy FS2006 when it's out!

I agree, I think MS had wifes test the game, just like when they sense the fun meter is getting too high and want to put a stop to it, the game does as well.
