  • Around the World/ Back in Time Lap 4: Episode 3 -Labrador Retrieval- Thu 9pm ET

    Hi pilots! Time to hop in that Herky-bird for another adventure Back in Time!

    We caused the Labrador Retriever to go extinct!

    HQ informs us that something we did last week has caused the extinction of the beloved Labrador Retriever and we must go back to 215 million BCE to fix history. We will fill our cargo bays with Cynodonts and Dicynodonts (Triassic era proto-mammals) and distribute them around Newfoundland and Labrador.

    Thursdays flightplan is as follows:

    Impact site, Canada. Departure (XXX2)
    Churchill Falls (CZUM)
    Triassic nature preserve (XXX3)
    Kuujjuaq (CYVP)

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

    This flight will take place in classic FSX, but feel free to follow along in steam!

    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 260 KIAS at around 12,000 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, Storm was kind enough to document which are the best planes for these "Around the World" cargo flights. 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.
