WHEN: From 1900z to 2100z, Saturday, April 10th, 2021. WHERE:
RAF Lakenheath (EGUL)
Wales LFA-7, aka Mach Loop.
Part 1 > Morning time and live weather.
Part 2 > Noon and border of a high pressure. AIRCRAFT LIMITATIONS:
Part 1 > Must be able to maintain 400kts @ 8000ft.
Part 2 > NO restrictions (everything is allowed).
In both parts, aircraft will be from the FGUK Hangar. REQUIRED FILES:
MINIMUM FG VERSION: 2020.1.1+ (any other older version doesn't have working AI). COMMS: Teamspeak.
Now that recent FlightGear versions support photo scenery and OSM buildings, it's time to celebrate it by making jets scream through the flashy rings at 600+ knots!
To kickstart the FlightNight, we will all assemble on time at the parking slots of EGUL with your fast jet of choice and will fly towards EGOD following the attached above route.
Total distance should be about 220NM. Target alt and speed will be between 2,000 and 8,000ft and in excess of 400kts. Weather and time as described for Part 1. We will fly fast so make sure to take some spare fuel.
This will take approx 30 minutes to complete at the end of which we will reorganize and let the madness unfold around Wales.
For the Madness, ALL the Loops are allowed for use, from the top-tier classic Mach Loop to the Heli Race, so feel free to try out multiple of them as you please. As stated above you can fly whatever you wish as long as it's from our Hangar. Weather and time as per Part 2.
It will be essentially a free-for-all, no regulations (except staying below Mach 1 of course). Just a bunch of folks haulin' through the valleys. Can't ask for anything better right?
If you also want to compete for a slot in the Top 10 all-time, make sure you take a screenshot of your fastest attempt and post it in the
after the flight . Good times might be added by myself as well if I manage to get screenshots of the results.
See ya there!
Breakin' the sound barrier every day! Oh God, that's EGOD!
