    Wink Maiden Captain Sims C-130 Flight

    Shalom and greetings all my pals,

    Presenting a nice Lockheed C-130E flight from PAFA Fairbanks International Airport located three miles southwest of the central business district of Fairbanks, Alaska to CYDA Dawson City Airport located 8 nautical miles east of Dawson City, Yukon, Canada.

    CYDA Dawson City airport is TOTALLY impossible to land UNLESS all of you tell me that Microsoft built that airport in wrong way for FSX.

    Airborne on climb to FL190 after my first Captain Sims C-130 take off from PAFA runway 02L for my first payware C-130 flight

    Still climbing

    Now cruising at FL190

    Beautiful three color tone winter sky

    Here is my new office!! (yeah four red lights in overhead panel is making me nervous)

    On final runway approach to runway 03 for SECOND attempt to land on that airport which turns out to be totally impossible to land on EITHER side of runway!!

    Yeah little dive is required to make successful landing on that extremely difficult airport

    Because of regulations of the forums not allowing more than 10 screenshots, please be kind enough to go to this hyperlink as seen below to view rest of the flight.

    Here is the link:

    Thank you for viewing. Stay tuned for next exciting flight.

    This is the real airport, paved runway and it used to be an air tanker base.

    In default FSX the field is built in by mountain rigs, in real life the runway is more or less parallel to the mountain rigs.

    Great pics nevertheless Aharon!

    The trouble with FSX defaut CYDA airport scenery and difficulty to land there is that Microsoft designed wrong high hills or mountains on both ends of runway!! You cannot approach both ends of single runway without hitting high hills or mountains due to Microsoft's wrong design of the surrounding areas of the CYDA scenery placing TOO high mountains or hills in front of both ends of runway.

    Why CYDA is totally impossible for me to land can be seen on those 2 videos (look for TOO HIGH HILLS on both ends of single runway meaning if I want to land, I have to fly over TOO high hillls and then DIVE steep and then land.

    Look at this DC-6 taking right turn after take off to avoid too high hills but that does not help me as I need to land!!

    Here is another video showing plane doing extremely deep climb to avoid mountains so you can imagine requirement of DEEP DIVE to get to runway
