El vuelo de los locos!



Location: Peru, plus a wee bit of Bolivia
Aircraft type: FGUK Hangar, Military, capable of 550 KIAS @ Angels 15
Approx. route distance: 760nm

On this FlightNight, we'll start off in coastal Peru, and run @ 300-350 kts through one of the world's biggest canyons (2x deeper than the Grand Canyon). Be prepared for lots of twists and turns! The object here is not to thunder through at top speed, but to enjoy. Of course some turns will be challenging at 350kts.

After the canyon run we'll about face and overfly Mount Ampato (volcano) to our break point (SPQU).

The second half will be more of a high speed, variable to high altitude run, first out to Lake Titicaca and beyond, looping around La Paz to cross the Andean landscape and finally land in Cusco.

Note: the waypoints in the canyon section are rough plots to keep us on course and not go off in a side canyon!

Viva el vuelo de los locos! Muere el vuelo de los locos! Disfruta el vuelo de los locos!

Any stairway is a stairway to heaven if you’re clumsy enough.
If your shirt isn’t tucked into your pants, your pants are tucked into your shirt.
Your stomach thinks all potatoes are mashed.
Most of the sky is actually below your feet.
The object of golf is to play the least amount of golf.

I'm having issues loading up anywhere near SPAM or SPZO. For whatever reason I can't get it downloaded, might have to sit this one out :(

I had multiple game crashes at both locations, Alex, so I suspect there's something in the Scenery that's causing issues.

I'm sorry I've missed this one but I've been ill since Thursday evening and only today I'm feeling a bit better. I hope I can make it next time ;) .
