NASA 747-SCA duo

Had another NASA 747-SCA enthusiast spawn in at LAX the other day. Was pretty fun to taxi, take off, and fly VFR around the SoCal area.



Was it safe to be that close to a 747 at takeoff thrust?


IRL no. Simulation anything is hahaha

your point?

That looks so cool. I really want to get that

just needed a couple of SOFIA as Escort craft and we have ourselves a convoy…

Are they any more difficult to fly with the extra weight?

Yes, the landings are more sensitive. I “crash” even on the lightest touches if I’m not 100% perfect. Very frustrating at times, but if you can master this plane. The rest will be a breeze for you.
