Following Inge & Claudia to Novosibirsk

Recommended Posts

Over on Youtube, Air Clips have finally posted the 3rd leg of a Lufthansa MD-11F return trip to Frankfurt, piloted by Inge and Claudia, namely Hong Kong to Novosibirsk, so of course I decided to follow suit with my own simulated MD-11f flight.

Link to their trip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbXoFFBxglY

TOW of 263 tons at VHHH. Fuel 64900kg, I had 65 tons on board. I think cargo was 65 tons (I misheard. I think Inge said more than 84 tons on on board!:blink:)...  In the sim, the pilot flying, i.e ME! may be far uglier looking, but the jet is still beautiful.. :wink:

Climbing out of Hong Kong (FSX NOTAM: I had inadvertently reduced the shipping traffic below 5% so the Global AI shipping wasn't present!).

Somewhere over mainland China.. :unsure:

Descending to UNNT for visual RWY25...Visual? OK I believe you..!:blink: This is going to be a little bumpy..

Out from under the clag.. Hmm.. They were right about the visual approach. Still a tad windy though..

Actually, the wind wasn't too bad.. (FSX NOTAM - need to check the ILS course. According to AIE (ILS inspection tool) the ILS for 25 is 252 degrees, but the sim still has 251 - may need to have a dive into Airport Design Editor. There's certainly an offset!)

She's down..

Nicely detailed airport with a big, illuminated sign in case I forget where I am.🍻

As per the real world trip, the freighter is pushed back into its parking spot. Novosibirsk is only a fuel stop - no cargo being unloaded on this occasion.

Always have loved the Inge and Claudia MD-11 Videos...fantastic....!!

Interesting re-creation, here,....gives purpose to your flight....(irrespective of the look of the Pilot, and probably also the look of the Pilot Uniform, in the SIM....🙂....)...

Thanks for the post...!!

Hmm...In that case, Mark, I may have to redact my earlier complement on your post, "...gives purpose to your flight...."...🙂...which was based on loftier aviation interests...

More seriously, watched a couple of more of these Air-Clips MD-11 videos by this pair (perfect teamwork and professionalism...with bits of humor and smile too...)....

A happy coincidence!  :tongue:

Whilst all aircrews featured in Air Clips are professional (of course!), the two ladies do have a certain synergy.
