Turbulent Tuesday - Super Heavy at Half Moon Bay @ KHAF - 181800ZJUL17

Hey everyone!

Join us for this week’s Turbulent Tuesday Casual Server Event:
Super Heavy at Half Moon Bay

It’s time that we take it back, way back, to when we first released Live. For the first few days, everyone spawned at KHAF regardless of aircraft. It was hilarious to see so many 747s and A380s together for the first time on Live at this small airfield. Today, we head back to KHAF in the 747-8 and/or A380 to relive the old days. Should be in the very least, entertaining to see.

Challenge of this week: Minimum takeoff weight is 1 million pounds. Take off before crossing the displaced threshold of the opposite end of the runway. Can you make it?

NOTE: You will NOT be able to spawn at KHAF, so start at KSFO or KOAK, fly to Half Moon Bay for a full stop. Then exit runway and taxi back for a takeoff.

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

Oh my god yes, this has always been my dream. An official IF event centered around messing around at KHAF. Also:

More like first few weeks. I still have flashbacks of seeing entire a380’s worth of people die instantly.

Full spoilers and brakes and reverses can get out off the middle exit without issue! Fun going in though. Doing more patterns now!

I wish I could come. But iTunes won’t let me renew my subscription.

@Mark_Denton Just like that picture in the original post… (It really looks like a tail strike is about to happen) 😜
