About This File

After reading about the flight research done around Edwards in the 50s, 60s, and 70s, I wanted to make a similar mission.   This is an entirely fictional scenario, as I don't have any actual X-plane ad-ons to use for the sim, and I wanted to fly over Hawaii.  The terrain is incredible.  

You'll need: 

Spillone104's terrific NF-104: https://combatace.com/files/file/11594-lockheed-nf-104a-for-sf2/

Menrva's beautiful Hawaii terrain: https://combatace.com/files/file/17485-hawaii-central-pacific-1959-2028/

Menrva's RealSky makes it great: https://combatace.com/files/file/16901-realsky-environment/

You MUST have the 'Start On Ground' setting selected on the Options page or you go BOOM.

The scenario starts with you dropping out from under a B52.  Full throttle and light the rocket off and have fun.  After burnout, try and glide to one of the runways for a deadstick landing.  For more challenge, simulate the high drag lifting body (M2-F2/3, HL-10, X-24A/B) vehicles by popping your boards at the top of the descent.

I suggest maintaining 350+KIAS until beginning your flare.

If you go over 115,000', the sim gets goofy and you're out of the cockpit.  As far as I can tell the aircraft continues on a ballistic trajectory.  Sometimes you'll come down in an upright or inverted spin, and it's fun to try to recover and still be able to glide to a runway.
