  • Around the World/ Back in Time Lap 4- Episode 8:-- The Viking Sunstones -950 Iceland-- Thu 9pm eastern



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

    Thursday night we will set the singularity drive to the year 950 in order to return some recently salvaged "Sunstones" to their Viking owners in Iceland.

    Scenery files:


    Thursdays flightplan is as follows:

    Kulusuk Greenland Departure (BGKK)
    Viking salvage operation (XXX7)
    Reykjavic Iceland (BIRK)
    Hornafjordur Iceland (BIHN)



    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 250 KIAS at around 20,000 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.

    Veur var ykkt og drfanda sem Sigurur hafi sagt. lt konungur kalla til sn Sigur og Dag. San lt konungur sj t og s hvergi himin sklausan. ba hann Sigur segja hvar sl mundi komin. Hann kva glggt . lt konungur taka slarstein og hlt upp og s hann hvar geislai r steininum og markai svo beint til sem Sigurur hafi sagt.
    ~ Raulfs ttr, written 12th or 13th century CE about events 995-1030 CE.

    "The weather was thick and snowy as Sigurur had predicted. Then the king summoned Sigurur and Dagur (Raulfur's sons) to him. The king made people look out and they could nowhere see a clear sky. Then he asked Sigurur to tell where the sun was at that time. He gave a clear assertion. Then the king made them fetch the solar stone and held it up and saw where light radiated from the stone and thus directly verified Sigurur's prediction."
    ~ Thorsteinn Vilhjalmsson's translation.
