In this thread I will post AARs of my flights through Great Britain. I haven’t been there in a while, in any sim or real life, so I thought I’d just fire up a fast prop plane and see how the area looks, and visit a few places.
This might also be the thread that will finally get me banned from Mudspike, you will see why in a minute.
Those of you who live in the UK or have been there, feel free to comment with anything you know about the area or about places I should visit.
So here’s my first flight, from Tempest Airstrip (EGRJ) in Cornwall to Bournemouth (EGHH):
I hopped in to the cockpit and… yeah, that’s definitely British weather. I noped straight out because I want to see something of the scenery.
I headed northeast and flew past Perranporth (EGTP)
And down there is my first waypoint, a beautiful place named Cocks Hill.
I continued northeast. Those bright areas are near St Austell. A lot of minerals are mined here.
My next waypoint was Bodmin Moor, and Cornwall’s highest point: Brown Willy.
I turned southeast and flew toward Plymouth.
Waypoint three, a place called Crapstone. Right between it and Yelverton is an old WW2 airstrip, RAF Harrowbeer.
I continued along the coast, until near Bridport.
Flying over Shitterton. That’s a motocross track down there.
Bournemoth in sight.
Landed. That was a fun flight. Some of those place names are hilarious.
Be prepared for more of that.
Btw, the ground crew member there looks almost out of scale with the plane. The P-38 may be a single seat fighter, but it is HUGE. Those props have a diameter of 11ft (3.3m)
