Best sequencing ever. We've come a long way.

How about that base leg? We had enough planes, and fast enough planes, to have fairly extended downwinds, and the valley slopes up North of Kern Valley fairly dramatically. It was pretty exciting to look off your right wing as you turned base and final and see the ground right there.

For those that are scratching their heads, wondering if Wayne is predicting the outcome of this flight, fear not, I think that reply was for the previous flight (I know, you clicked on the sticky and hit reply without looking at the topic) :)

I'd like to tag along on these flights if no one has a problem with that.

I have a question though, has anyone flown around me before, or anyone else flying a turbo commander? I'm curious to know if Squawkbox has a model for this plane, and if it doesn't, I don't want to ruin it for everyone by having that queer paper airplane thing that shows up when there isn't a model for your plane.

Just wondering.

It doesn't, but don't let that stop you. You really only see the model on the ground, and most of the group uses xplane and see different multiplayer aircraft all together!

Join the flight. It's the most fun you can have with your pan... You get the gist. :)

Then I guess I'll make an appearance.


On a side note, is there anyone who compiles models for future releases of squawkbox model sets that I can send an AI model of the Commander too? If so, I can draw one up real quick and get that out.

Just wondering

Hi SX,

I'm at a safety seminar tonight, then having drinks with some folks. If I'm back in time, I'll be there!

Thanks everyone for coming out on these VFR flights. We made it back to KSMO finally (6 months after we left it).

This concludes the VFR coast to coast flights east and westbound.

Just because the coast to coast flights are done doesn't mean the VFR flights are done. Keep em' comin guys!
