We start our flight at 6.00PM in Bergen (Norway) with a HE219 A-0

Image
the Fjords where very nice to see and I would miss them in the flat Netherlands where our new base is; the Nightfighterbase Deelen.
Image
...climbing with 1,25 ata and 2500rpm to 20000ft...
Image
...Levelflight with 1,0 ata and 2000rpm with ca. 475km/h and "Patin" autopilotsteering.
Image
the weather was clear when I startet in Bergen but when I reaches the scottish coast to find my phototargets it changed to foggy clouds.
Image
Iverness base
Image
across the scotts highlands the weather was partial clear and the sunset was very nice and I noticed a 10km/h faster speed after the first waypoint flying south because the wind was behind us now.
Image
now our long way to the Netherlands across Britain began and I dicided to take a look at Liverpool and fly along the westcoast
Image
We find the Liverpool area in good weather and fully lightened.
Image
since my rear and middle tank where empty my eyes went often to the fuel gauge in the last tank .
Image
when we reached the eastcoast i decide to go in a very light dive and reduce Power to 0.9 ata and 1900rpm. The sky was really phantastic with it´s stars...are there the real starsigns in FS2004 ?
:shock:
Image
after 4 hours flight we find our new base in the Netherlands in groundfog .
Image
Low on fuel we where happy to be back on earth :wink:
Image
our mission was about 1750km long.
Image

I only wish this great Plane will be flyable in the next FS...or better CFS
:?

Great post. A bit to close on that fuel, wouldn't you say? Did you maximuze your range with those cruise charts? They come in very handy in flights like this.

oh night flying, :)

re: the stars

you can get the real stars, search for stars etc at avsim. also if you want to nav via them you can download the sextant (sp?) add-on for proper navigation, although its rather confusing to get the hang off :o

yep I use the charts from your HE219 documentation and from FS itself.

but I have another question about navigating without the gps which was not available at that time :wink:
In most german planes there was a instrument which show the radiocontacts and the compass was splitted in a "Führer und Tochterkompass" but I think this didn´t work in FS2004 ?
if someone can explain me the work of this compasses and the knob called Nav/GPS ? I realize that sometimes the Lines in the ILS display in my cockpit where on different angles from switching from NAV to GPS but I dont know how they connect together ?

Hi. The ILS gauge works with NAV radio. Use it for landings, entering the ILS freqs in. Also, the NAV radio is usefull in VOR navigation together with Heading Indicator (below the artifical horizon).

It's a token nod toward non-specialist simmers who don't want to fly in a 1940's environment. It's not `realistic` in the sense that it's not the way the original plane was navigated, but it IS realistic in the sense that if one were flying today and wanted to cruise at the altitudes it does, it would have to be so equipped!
