Mind you, it sounds dreadfully imprecise, but I suppose sufficient :)


From observing the drift angle and speed - as long as ground is in sight it is fairly accurate (and flight is usually low level so being over a cloud cover would be unusual). It had an airspeed indicator too of course, but that doesn't really help navigation if you don't know the wind.

[EDIT]
On some more adventurous flights, such as the positioning flight of N.1 Norge from Rome to Svalbard for the cross polar flight in 1926 the leg from Oslo, Norway to Gatchina, Soviet Union crossed Sweden and the Baltic Sea from west to east in fog and cloud without external navigational input - but then they did end up on the wrong side of the Gulf of Finland and had to read railway station signs to re-establish their location...

@StuartC

Would you consider hiring out your Navy fleet for mercenary work?

I got to say, those shots made me really want to set up a Navy fleet scenario to fly from. Really nice composite of work.

Very nice Navy operation.

Today, I made school flight with my son Adam. He used 707, I fly as ussually with Concorde. Flight plan was simply - take off at LZKZ, destination LKPR. All was good until we reach Olomouc (LKPO). Over this airport Adam in the mistake switched all 4 engines off. But in some miracle was able to start it back and we proceed to Prague (LKPR). And made another, but now fatal mistake - landed without gear :

Call the A.C.I. team :mrgreen:

Congrats on a VTOL landing! :shock:
And? Did you got her back into the air?

Yes, I did. With very carefully climb on full throttle and full flaps few knots over stall speed is possible to take off from 33. You will need full runway with default FOB.
