I don't know Boeing, it's difficult to see what you're doing with just pictures rather than video. You may be doing amazing things but all we would see is one static image. With certain types of stunts like going through hangars or under bridges a picture can illustrate that well, but in this type of challenge I think a video would be better.

Props to MyName, that does not look easy.

Well you see I don't know how to record video... Sorry guys. Now for Lukla :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Lukla is one of the hardest places to land since it's on a cliff surrounded by mountains and it has a vary short runway.

Sort of.
Well I didn`t break the plane so it was a landing.

APT Suggestion: YLHI Lord Howe Island. You have to spawn there to land there. Unless you want to fly for a few hours to get there.

It surely wasn't... I think it took around 6 or 7 tries, perhaps even more, to get a good landing. I think I have footage of a somewhat bad landing, and of a really good approach, that didn't end well after the aircraft was left hanging off the deck, although it didn't run into the ocean.

Yes it was me...


Here are some more videos for inspiration:





The Twotter is absolutely amazing!!! :D

That is why I devote so much time to it 8)

We can all thank Syd Adams for such a wonderful model :mrgreen:

That Kokoda Trail is incredible. I wonder if we have any of those airports in Flightgear?

Port Moresby, AYPY, http://mapserver.flightgear.org/map/?lo ... FFTTTFTFFF
And we do have the grass-airstrips, but they're just part of the default terrain. There's not much to model anyway... and no ICAO code to start from... :)

Great video! I like that first runway, with the hills around it the approach looks tricky.

P.S. You just need to put this bit only between the Youtube tags YkSk7CBjGK4

Yes there is at least one which I've flown around, Tapini (TPI) and it is pretty fun :D
