Hangar 7 / Re: Spoiler up during take-off

Definitely a defect. No dispatch.

Perhaps the spoiler panel dropped back down without hydraulics and they missed it on the walkaround.

Hangar 7 / The ultimate crosswind landing attempt?

While we know that the geometry and telephoto optics distortion of these croswind landings is often misleading, this one looks like it must have been rather stressful.  It is amazing how many of these crosswind landings are available on youtube.

I suppose it is a matter of "any attempted landing you can walk away from is a good one"!

From the 'way-back-machine'.  KAVX (Airport in the Sky on Catalina Island) had me buying updates of FS and California scenery for decades.

Hangar 7 / World Flight Route Information Manual
« Last post by Gary Oliver on Tue, 25 Sep 2018 19:49 »
All,

With World Flight just over a month away Simon has been busy at work writing a Route Information Manual for all of the legs on the World Flight Route this year.

A copy of the Simfest RIM is available at

https://www.dropbox.com/s/1p80bvokppgl4q3/Route%20Information%20Manual%20WF%202018%20Public.pdf?dl=0

If you find this useful then a donation to *any* of the World Flight Teams would be appreciated.

Cheers
Gary

Hi,

it's spoiler #8, and it looks like a malfunction to me. But probably not significant enough for a short flight.

Thanks for the point re:China airport in XP11.20.

Of course, the 8 major airports as default are already amazing for a default scenery. It even includes the new runway and new terminal at ZUCK / Chongquing - something that is not available for the FSX world.

But to my amazement, XP11 now even has the hundreds of airports from the domestic AIP included (little detail, though). That is simply not easily available for FSX/P3D since this dataset is not included in Jeppesen/Navigraph/any-other-western-Database. Some airports are missing (ZUJZ among them, unfortunately, also ZURK), but ZUZH and ZGHC are there as is ZUNZ.

So getting the XP11-PSX up running will be one of my next projects. :-) (After the familiarization with the 747-8i is completed... )

Markus

p.s.
And I'd love to have those Chinese domestic airports in PSX :-)

Hangar 7 / Spoiler up during take-off

Hi,

I've come across this video of a Virgin 747 landing and taking off from Belfast.  During the line up (at 2.10) spoiler 7 or 8 appears raised.  It's still raised during the take-off roll (at 3.20).  Is that unusual?

I wonder - does XP11 have Chinese domestic-only airports in the default database? Need to check when I'm back home...

Look for them all in X-Plane 11...

These airfields should be there ( ? ) and for those using the XP visuals port, it's probably possible to try to land, and then takeoff, from each one :-)
