Official Iconic FSX Challenge 4

As challenge 4 never arrived here is the unofficial one, unless Wedgy says it can be official :)

you need to land any aircraft that you want on a carrier, preferably the one near San Francisco.

http://www.iconicaircraft.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=476 see directions here.

As proof of you landing you must provide a screen shot. By pressing shift+z you can get up a line of red text at the top..

the 'KIAS' is the speed, this clearly proves that you have stopped!

Does December the 1st sound like an ok final entry date??

The Winner will be voted as the 'pilot' who has used the most skill to land on the carrier, therefore landing a 747 on it makes you more likely to win that landing a helicopter on it. If your aircraft has an arrester hook, please state if you used it or not. Video proof is fine :)

here is an example!



The results will be delivered through a poll!

Happy simming!
