This is only gonna be my 500th "727 in Xplane" post...

Enroute Guadalajara to Medellin.

Totally NOT carrying drugs or money.

I just think the play of colours looks amazing.

Heading almost dead-east during this portion of the flight.

Cumulus and Stratus clouds on an afternoon approach into Manaus.

The confluence of the Amazon river and Rio Negro do contribute a lot to the humidity of the air.

Punching out of a cumulus. Airspeed is 230kts and the final turn onto the ILS is just coming up...

Awesome mod. I was very proud when I saw that one of my mods had been included in it.

 

Here’s my guide to historical gameplay, if you’re interested: https://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?p=2572620#post2572620

A quick flight from Kansas City to Minneapolis / St. Paul.

The 60s Continental-livery gives it away: We're pretending to be in the 60s where flying was dangerous, adult activity was safe and gas was cheap.

We're cruising at Mach 0.88 at 27000ft. Because we can.

 

1738007816_727-100-2019-12-1218_06_22.thumb.jpg.206e5a18f045ff2499883ba6da6d3b3e.jpg

On final approach, descending through the murky, snowy overcast, wondering where the heck that goddarn glideslope-indication is.

The runway is pretty much right down the alley, concerning wind. Well, kinda. The good, old xplane turbulence is throwing us around and keeping the needle(s?) centered is more of a fuzzy art. If you haven't guessed already: I managed to line up on the only effing localizer-only runway in town!

What approach-briefing?

 

124777673_727-100-2019-12-1218_10_34.thumb.jpg.8fc9493a52d319f25b3899a7b250d235.jpg

As I can't see the runway at 1 DME (weel duh, it's 1500ft below, doofus!), I firewall the JT8D-9 engines and take her around. Not having an approach chart  with stepdowns, MDAs and MSAs around really helps. Not.

As we break through the clouds at 4000ft: Clear skies!

 

2021932612_727-100-2019-12-1218_10_52.thumb.jpg.aece0e6f4041474ca4b7f40310128fe1.jpg

As we punch through the upper levels of the undercast, I try to retract the flaps on schedule. Lots of stuff going on in that three-man cocpit!

Guess what those clowns did. They turned over approach directions! No really, xplane just switched the wind-direction. Because it can. Real weather my foot!

I guess that helps with having a full-blown ILS with bells, whistles and a glideslope!

 

1676904534_727-100-2019-12-1218_29_40.thumb.jpg.4d25c309e6fb87d238892250a4592e55.jpg

Coming back around for the approach in the opposite direction. Looks like that good old weather is sitting right on top of the airfield, as we had outflown the storm some 25 miles away, but we're turning back into the murk. Guess who is too stupid to self-vector onto the localizer...

Yeah, right, me! I manage to turn in too early, making the intercept-point awfully close to the threshold - this has me intercepting the GS way before the LOC. For the fun of it, I tried it out anyway.

 

1317096089_727-100-2019-12-1218_39_47.thumb.jpg.2a4fcd44c046b1cb54fab68fe34d80f5.jpg

Of(f) course, it didn't work out. tf would have made for a very nice visual with a very late lineup, but under those conditions - no way.

Can anybody spot the runway? Needless to say, I take her around again...

 

1236076568_727-100-2019-12-1218_44_07.thumb.jpg.a7c735bf391781f8c0710334c32cbb0a.jpg

The skies look peaceful at 8000ft. We still have 4500lbs of gas in each tank. Time to start thinking about diverting...

 

1316516763_727-100-2019-12-1218_44_16.thumb.jpg.bad310a02b85379117796c47ba17f92c.jpg

I don't really want to go back down there, but you gotta land somewhere. It's where the food is, after all...

The next self-vectoring works out a lot nicer. This time, I make an effort to hit the localizer about 10 miles out.

 

231577556_727-100-2019-12-1218_59_37.thumb.jpg.90db2475f8abc6906ad24ef8e78640d2.jpg

Just below minimums, one dot low (turbulence can really have you messed up quickly by the time you have found the key to capture a screenie).

 

613246571_727-100-2019-12-1219_05_33.thumb.jpg.e3e1c0da2ebf32ae715151cd5075abd9.jpg

At the gate. It's happily snowing large flakes at MSP.

Time to call it a night and catch the shuttle to the hotel. I heard they have a nice happy hour there - just what I need right now!

 

 

 

X-Plane has some very nice turbulence-modelling. It's very akin to the movement of a ship and it's a very good representations of the worst stormy nights as SLF.

It really helps you keeping up that instrument scan!

 

Disclaimer:

I should have plugged in Foreflight and cross-checked that darn LOC-approach before setting myself up for a self-imposed GA. I guess the prospect of flying right down the wind on the runway was looking very inviting after having landed with a 42kts crosswind at Kansas City (yeah, x-plane managed to change winds 5 or 6 times during the approach) 🙃

BTW: I made an effort to not fly on FD, so all approaches were flown raw and ugly. It really is fun - especially since the 727 is all over the place in pitch, trim and airspeed if you carelessly throw around the flap-lever, not caring about the correct speeds...

That new Chinese fighter they released for DCS, (JF-17) looks similar, from some angles to the canceled Romanian IAR-95 project, so obviously i dressed it like it. :lol:

Halo: Reach

 

SWORD Base, Babd Catha Ice Shelf, Eposz, Reach, 1200 hours, 26/7/2552

 

After fighting off a Covenant assault, Chief Warrant Officer Jorge-052 and Lieutenant B312 report to Doctor Catherine Halsey, informing her that a team of elite Sangheili Zealots is present on the planet.

 

Unwittingly, their presence also alerts Halsey to the existence of the SPARTAN-III program, the second UNSC program to deploy augmented child soldiers into combat.

Asźod, Eposz, Reach, 2000 hours, 30/8/2552

 

B312 prepares to make a final stand against an overwhelming force of Unggoy and Sangheili.

As much as I'm looking forward to the complete HALO experience on PC, Infinite looks like a masterpiece.

I'm playing through Reach at the moment on PC... I never could get on with controllers, so using a mouse and keyboard has improved my game play experience. Loving it so far!

If anyone is interested, I have a thread going here...   Halo Reach

 

And I agree, Infinite is going to be a day one purchase for me!

Got a bird which should already be familiar to IL-2 pilots.

 

It feels kinda different but in a good way - so much character and unique to fly.

A lot of fun - although there isn´t that much content for it at the moment. I am using a user made mission to do some stuff.

If you like the period, and enjoy open world games you should love this.

I am just starting to get to grips with the combat side of things... be warned though, this is nothing like Skyrim combat. It has a learning curve that I am just starting to fully understand.

You will come off worst early on, as the game is letting you know that you are a complete beginner at fighting with sword , mace and bow etc... but after lessons from your instructors and continued practice, your reactions and abilities should steadily improve.   :biggrin:

 

Meanwhile, a few more screens...

DCS with infantry that will be playable, I hope Il2 BON will have also playable infantry or something like a driven Jeep with a machine gun :

Playable infantry in IL-2 - hope this will never ever happen. Please, this would be a game breaker. If I want to see playable infantry

with smooth movements, I rather launch HLL or PS/Squad.

@NETSCAPE That the Graviteam's Mius Front? Got it on sale, but yet to start it. 

 

Yes. It has a big learning curve (operational turns/UI/mechanics). But the simulation of battle is good enough so that if you have a basic idea of tactics that would work irl, it will work in the game.
