So a few hours ago I was flying at 12k feet in an F-14 at about 700 kts (bad idea)
Suddenly, my autopilot fails and sends me straight into the ocean and I had no time to correct it. Normally it would crash, but instead, is accelerates to 200,000 kts and got launched into space!!
Flying at ~2,200,000 fpm, after 10 minutes settled into an orbit over the Atlantic Ocean, able to see North, South America and Africa
Glad you had your landing lights on ;)
Was a little distracted to turn them off 😂
@IF787 I could only imagine! hahah
Guess we could officially say you’re at the forefront of leading the SpaceForce!
Looks amazing :)
Lol when most people try this it’s on purpose this might be one of the first accidental space missions in infinite flight haha.
Not orbit but rather a bug that keeps you in the air for some reason
Um, who ever flagged this, can they pm me to tell me why, just curious…
Who the hay flagged that post 😂
Can someone please tell me if a moderator or someone will pm me to tell me the reason of my post being flagged? I don’t understand why it was flagged, I’m a bit annoyed
I can still see it though… cool
On top of that, this was like just after I escorted a NASA plane.
I orbited for about 2 hrs then exited because there was no way to come back down
Well, IRL, you couldn’t come down from space while in orbit with a jet engine, as air is needed for them to function
Yes but orbit requires you to be travelling at 7800m/s parallel to the ground. Can’t achieve that in IF, you just experienced a bug that keeps you stuck in the air
That is true.
I crossed North America in 5 minutes though
But that’s before you got stuck. You just had the kinetic energy from the first bug which shot you in a random direction at highspeed
Are you applying laws of physics to a glitch in IF?
