Charan Kumar Posted October 8, 2012 Share Posted October 8, 2012 Quiet a flight it was, 2 hrs later, and with INS out of whack, had to cheat to get in. Weather showed somewhat interesting when I departed NZCH for a flight to NZIR in the CONCORDE, of course, not understanding properly, proceeded only to find out that I couldn't see where the rwy or the airport was, after turning around a bit to look for it...finally ended up clearing the weather to make a visual approach into the airport (ah the wonders of the sim world). I also apologize for the poor quality of pics as I hadn't set the capture settings properly. I had picked two waypoints, one 10nm out on the final approach course, and the last but one waypoint being the rwy itself, and had both programmed in the INS. However, I mismanaged my descent and was coming too high too fast and didn't make it below 900 ft to see the lead in lights in the first approach, which I could've, but things happening too fast during an approach phase, and bad pilotage. Even with endless visibility, the hand flown approach was no less fun. You can't beat the feeling of how the Concorde steps onto the rwy during landing Cheers!!
