P3C Departing Lajes AB (LPLA)

Recommended Posts

Discovered this video while cleaning out old files.  Made way back when FS2020 first came out. In the 6-minute clip, a Navy P3C "Orion" from VP-11 is departing Lajes AB in the Azores Islands for a return flight to the U.S. east coast,  Which in this case (VP11) would be Brunswick Naval Air Station in Maine.


After takeoff, the plane makes a climbing turn to the West over the Island of Terceira and heads for the neighboring islands of San Jorge, Pico (conical volcanic peak), and Faial before beginning the long open ocean leg back to the U.S.  The plane is an FSX conversion to FS2020.  The island scenery and engine views are pretty much exactly the way they look in the RW.

I remember it well! Nicely done.

Always Aviate, then Navigate, then Communicate. And never be low on Fuel, Altitude, Airspeed, or Ideas.
