  • Around the World Lap 5 - --- Episode 61: Through the Grape Vine --1557 Argentina -- Thu 9pm eastern

    Hi guys! Looks like its time for another night of delivering cargo in those majestic Herkey-Birds!

    Thursday night we will be delivering grape vine-cuttings and wine making supplies to the 1557 La Rioja region of Argentina.

    Thursdays flight plan is as follows:

    SCDA departure
    SCFA
    SCES
    SANL

    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 14,000 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,
