  1. In view of the recent "modification" to the port of Beirut a Western Global freighter was chartered to fly aid to Beirut. Departing from EGNX, bound for OLBA. Preparing for loading & fuelling. Ratcliffe on Soar power station in the background. Punching through the haze which had moved in. FSX NOTAM nope, no help for the lack of undercarriage door animations to date Approaching the French coast - no small boats in sight.. For the majority of the flight we'll be cruising at FL350, but climb up to FL400 when we're a bit lighter. Passing over the Swiss Alps. Venice is off to the left of the picture, the flight plan roughly follows the east coast of Italy. The heel of Italy.. About to overfly Cyprus. Beginning the descent to Lebanon. Being vectored to visual for RWY34. We were expecting some haze, but they could have turned the lights up a bit!! BUSTED! One of my better landings, but it was just in the displaced threshold... (sigh...) Oh well in for a penny - celebrated by wheelying quite a distance down 34 A bit of reverse idle in conjunction with the brakes one the nose was down and use the last turn off. Taxiing in down on side of the airport buildings... ...and up the other side to the cargo area! Time to let the ground services get busy. Enjoy🍻 FSX NOTAM - lovely freeware airport available in the library from Lebor Simulations. There is also some free photoreal Lebanon scenery but I hadn't downloaded it at the time of the flight
  2. I finally pulled the trigger on Rex 4 (Just Flight have it for £16.99) and carried out a flight in the SkyMaster to test it out. Seems I picked a nice day for GA in the UK - hardly any weather to speak of. Not so good for Rex as most of the METARS were CAVOK LOL, at least until I got close to Liverpool. I selected EGSS for Rex to generate a theme and off I went. AHA! A bit of low lying cloud, or fog.. NOW we have a cloud that shows me we are good to go - DX10 Fixer Cloud Shadows are working fine. ..and here we are, right downwind for RWY27 EGGP.
  3. Not much to see on this leg where we finally!! arrive at Karachi. Taxiing out at Dubai No pax to get upset about a max climbout... at 67 knots! Head across the UAE to get out into the Persian Gulf. Then hug (not quite) the Iranian coast, heading east until we reach Karachi, Pakistan. Jask Airport, Iran off the port wing. Low cloud at about 2000 feet and haze approaching Karachi. I should be able to get under it.. Underneath the clouds yet Karachi ATIS is saying 100 feet overcast.. LIES I tell you. LIES! To humour the tower and not cause an international incident I humour them by flying a holding pattern a few miles out from the airport. With darkness falling I decide enough is enough & squawk 7600. What overcast? ... Touchdown - more or less a 3-pointer! Not ideal with a tricycle undercarriage... Time to shut her down for the night... and maybe go and find a number I have to call.... The next leg is across India to Calcutta (Kolkata as it is known these days), a distance of some 1100 nautical miles or so. I'll have to have a stop over in this homage to the 1969 Air Race.. without ferry tanks! Cheers!
  4. Don't need much fuel for this trip, about 35k pounds to haul 50 tons. Taxiing out to RWY02 at EGCN. Feet wet off the coast of England. Descending towards Belgium Brussels airport just visible in the gap in the clouds above the window lever A bit hazy down here, on vectors for a visual to RWY5L RWY5L beckons. You can't quite see it, but there was another plane about to take off from 5R. Touchdown! View from the tower. Crossing 5R on the way to the cargo ramp. Nice evening. Right! Get the kettle on! Enjoy.
