  • Around the World Lap 5 - --- Episode 50: Mastodons in Mexico ---11,000 BCE -- Thu 9pm eastern

    Hey guys! Looks like its time for another night of delivering cargo in those majestic Herky-birds!

    Thursday night we will be fixing a mastodon mess that we created over 11,000 years ago.

    Thursdays flightplan is as follows:

    MMPC Pachuca, Mexico Departure
    MMQT Queretaro
    MMPN Uruapan
    MMMX Mexico City

    A flightplan .PLN file for this flight can be found here:

    This flight will take place using JoinFS!

    As always with these Around the World flights the preferred aircraft is the timeless Captain sim C130 Hercules, but feel free to use any cargo prop that can maintain 250 KIAS at around 9,000 ft. Please do Not bring a jetliner to this event because they stick out like a sore thumb and are a distraction.

    Not sure what to fly?

    For those who don't have or don't want to fly the C-130, this should help you decide.
    • An-12 Most similar to C-130. Most extras (airbrake, autothrottle, paradrop). Russian annotations. Most difficult to fly.
    • An-32 Most frame-rate friendly. Best cockpit model. Easy to fly except long spool time. Needs refueling on long flights.
    • Howard 500 Easy for piston engine pilots. Best climber. Tail-dragger. Performance tails off at altitude. Poorest frame rates.
    • C-119 Boxcar Easiest to fly.
      • Re-engined (French) variant: Faster. Normal climb rates.
      • Normal engine variants: Slower. Half the climb rate so gets left behind on short-medium length flights.

    Happy landings,
