@butter: that's true, but only if you go crazy with Ultra High Density. The difference between Disabled and Medium density is just a few FPS with ALS off for me (like, 3 or 4). But, when turning off all OSM stuff, my FPS easily doubles !
Fun fact: With 2020.3.13 which didn't have the compositor yet, in a place with relatively light scenery (like SAWH) (and medium quality settings, OSM stuff disabled) I was once getting 27 FPS with ALS ON ! :) But the compositor shadows spoiled me … :wink:

If you are all fine with it, we'll continue with Berlin-Frankfurt in continuation of last week.

For the information post numbering it will be yankee-2 and after that we'll continue with alpha.

If anybody is willing to give me a ride, I could join your DC-3 as multiplayer copilot for some traditional navigation work. Can't promise good jokes for the inflight entertainment.

I can't make it this week for the flight back :( but I might be able to offer some basic ATC, I don't know yet. I hope you all remember to check your fuel tanks before departure and get to know where the fuel tank selector is located - that caught me out last week and I had to scramble round on the brink of a 'das ist nicht gut' moment I can tell you.

Thanks for the reminder Volador :-) And thansk für the limited ATC.
It might be an idea to bring radio communication into focus in any coming event.

Looking forward to meet you guys at EDDI for "yankee-2".

Ah, so you decided to stay in West Berlin? 8)
Stay away from Checkpoint Charlie and you'll be fine ;-)

A pity, that you could not make it!

But probably we'll repeat it in a few months, as it is such a classic event.

Nice, Lester! We definitely need to include this aspect of the airlift.
