Crossing the Red - #3

The route resumes at Marree (YMRE) and has been modified to include a side trip to view the Marree Man before heading north to find the hard to see airstrip at Cowarie. I have also added another airstrip and point of interest after Finke Apatula.  We will land at Henbury then head northwest and overfly Pine Gap before landing at Alice Springs. 

Documentation

The modified flightplan found here.

Part 1 of the Pilots' Guide can be found here

 

Aircraft:  More long legs and several dirt strips would make this a good week for warbirds.  I will be flying the A2A North American P51-D Mustang in the “Providence Permittin” livery by Jan Kees.

 Scenery NOTAM: 

There is a elevation conflict between Ozx bushstrips and Orbx version 2. The fix will remove the paved runway and leave a dirt strip without the elevation problem.   It can be corrected by renaming the following file found in: 

P3Dv4\ORBX\FTX_AU\FTXAUv2_05_SCENERY\scenery

Rename "ADE_FTX_AUS_YFNE.bgl"  to " ADE_FTX_AUS_YFNE.bgl.OFF"

If you have not done so yet, you want to look at Jeff's Pilots Guide description of Maree Man...and the lovely linked video. To solve this, we'll need the brilliance of Agatha Christie's Belgian detective Hercule Poirot - as seen in Murder on the Orient Express.

The video is a must-watch! If you like humor, this video is right up your alley.

There is about eight or so real nice youtube video links in Jeff Pilot's (study) guide on the central and southern part of the AU continent covering Melbourne/Williamstown, the Outback, Northern Territory,  Alice Springs, Broken Hill and of course Marree (and it's 2.2 mile Marree man!).  (Have watched every one in last week or so as I went through the guilde!.

The Marrie man..  reminds me of that lyric- "Oh, do you know the Marree man", the Marree man...  Hmmm, thought he lived on Drury Lane but I guess he moved to Marree!)..  (The big question is" Where is Sherlock when you need him to figure this all out?)

Nice work Jeff.

Sitting out here at the windy and cold Baltic Sea Shore, watching these videos made a much welcome contrast!

I'm missing theses flights, have fun!

I reckon it was all of 'em! Way too many suppressed smirks in that video.
