Why i get report? I did’t break the rule. I use 772F and speed not over 300 IAS. I need reason please

You’re not allowed to use the 772F. Please check the NOTAM carefully.

Yeah I was on expert. Found two refuelers. Successfully got fuel once. Usually I fly the tanker - these super jets are hard.

DC and MCF is allowed?

Put on show for Al Udeid (OTBH) at the start of the event. Thanks to Approach Control and Tower for allowing the formation low approach on the expert server! Had a blast!

So sad I can’t go😢😢😭😭

@Fernando_Quintero That’s an amazing photo! Perhaps you should post it to #screenshots-and-videos? I really like it.

I will do that! I believe the other pilots in my formation took some good ones as well. I’ll encourage them to post!

So if we fly a commercial flight and cruise over the TFR at say FL370, will we be ghosted?

that’s what the NOTAM says

I don’t get what you mean. I’ve also seen people fly over it in non-military aircrafts

We IFATC controllers will not ghost commercial aircraft as long as they stay out of our way and don’t contact our frequency. They (non-military aircraft) can come into the TFR areas but just can’t interfere with our operations. If you want to fly into Doha, for example, you are free to do so as long as you don’t contact OTBH tower.

Alright thanks for the heads up! I just got confused because the TFR said FL430 haha

I think there is a topic for this.

You will probably get more people to come if you post it there. :)

I have really enjoyed this FNF - probably been hand flying this KC-10 for probably about 12 hours over 5 flights around the middle east (VFR)
