  1. Thanks to my discovery of IVAO's Concorde Anniversary Round The World Tour I now have several routes suitable for the supersonic beauty. https://www.ivao.aero/Worldtour/2017/sst/Concorde World Tour 2017a.pdf The second flight is from KJFK to SOCA. Definitely filing an IFR flight plan!! I do wish the lighting was a little bit better for taxiing out. Right. Time to let New York know that we're on the way! What do you mean overspeed?? She IS speed! (FSX NOTAM - still getting to grips with the airspeed in the climb..) Descending towards French Guiana and slowing down. Being vectored for the RWY08 ILS ...and overshooting the localiser.. Got her down OK. (FSX NOTAM - shame the bogies don't pivot..) Welcome to Cayenne – Félix Eboué Airport Enjoy! Despite its quirks, I still like the DC Designs offering, especially as it was released in the twilight years - some might say complete dark age - of FSX.. 🍻
  2. I managed to complete a flight from Belfast to NYC without encountering an invisible hurricane (stock fair weather setting, no winds aloft). I did have issues with the automation, but that's detailed in a post in the FSX forum.. Anyhow here we go. Scaring the neighbours.. Subsonic until over the ocean. Most definitely supersonic climbing over FL520 Waking up Canada.. sorry! (Not a proper Concorde route. Just testing!) Subsonic again descending towards KJFK. The approaches were abysmal due to my issues (3 go-arounds!), but eventually, an OK landing.. The stairs are included with the product, as is a ground power cart (not shown because Concorde's shut down!) Enjoy!
  3. A better trip! I may be getting a little more used to the quirks in the bird, not to mention my FSX setup (other post in the FSX forum..). Climbing like a homesick angel away from KJFK. In real life, Concorde and her crews were rather good at sticking it to the noise abatement crowd who really didn't want Concorde's roaring Olympus orchestra creating stillborn children or scaring cattle (or whatever..) - but due to her manoeuvrability she aced all the noise detectors in a climbing turn which loaded 747s struggled to match . I reckon it was sour grapes because Boeing's SST 2707 never got beyond a mock up, but that's just my opinion! The fact was she passed the noise detection. Note that the 2707 was indeed a wondrously amazing-looking behemoth with swing wings and a two-joint drooping nose. I had a model of one way back and I for one was a fan & would have loved to have seen it actually fly, had it worked as hoped! 🍻.. Sorry. I digress. Goodbye NYC. Subsonic climb to reach open ocean. I'll have to investigate the overspeed parameters.. Mach 2+ west to east. It gets dark even quicker, but a lovely view up here. I probably should have made a flight plan which routed me south of Ireland and then I would no doubt have decelerated towards the Bristol Channel.. I believe I may have disturbed the tranquillity of the Emerald Isle. I can just imaging Bishop Brennan castigating Father Ted, "CRILLEE!! What the feck and damnation was that noise?!! You didn't buy Father Dougal that chemistry set he's been after did you?" (totally made up scenario, but the Father Ted series was being broadcast when Concorde was still flying). Actually , not long after this shot was taken, the stock ATC gave me an initial descent.. Subsonic now and approaching the North Wales coastline. We're being vectored for an ILS approach to RWY23R. Somewhere above the nose in the picture is BAe Warton, Blackpool airport is the large, dark expanse above the tail. No shots of the runway from the cockpit, I was too busy juggling off the AP and AT - it wasn't pretty. I had her in NAV mode and whilst she did turn towards the localiser, I forgot to press ILS... (FSX NOTAM - I'm sure that at 3000 feet, one intercepts the glideslope from below.. however, the gauge was showing the arrow at the bottom of its travel. I think it had begun to move up the display... before I decided to go manual.) I landed long & with a ground effect bounce! Taxiing in, nose pointed at the Airport Hotel! I reckon I need a beer after that flight! Shutdown. SODE kind of works too! Cheers! 🍻
  4. Apart from elevator trim effectiveness (which I have increased slightly and it seems to help a little), how useful are other autopilot parameters such as max_pitch and _bank_acceleration and _velocity, and max_throttle_rate? How much can I screw them up? LOL I'm trying to see if DC Design's Concorde can be made more responsive to stop it hunting around, overshooting and porpoising when trying to get established on an ILS.. I can horse it around to get the job done, but that's not exactly the point and it upsets the passengers LOL. It would be nice to have the jet establish itself nicely on the localiser after the stock ATC has given me the usual 30 degree intercept angle... Does Radar Contact 4 set you up further out I wonder?
