Turbulent Tuesday - Heavy Hercs @ TNCM - 051800ZSEP17

Hey everyone!

Join us for this week’s Turbulent Tuesday Casual Server Event:
Heavy Hercs

We fly down to the Caribbean region for some C-130 Hercules flying. Load the plane to MTOW and do some island hopping. The challenge will be to land and takeoff at max weight at some of the smaller fields, but also, the weather should add to the challenge as well. Come out and join us in your favorite C-130 and have some fun.

Be sure to share your pictures for a chance to have one shared on our Instagram page!

Oh boy sounds like this is gonna be painful lol. Good luck to those who attend! :)

You crashed because you were in a 787 during a C-130 event.
