[Water ditched] I need YOUR help (Once again)


Hey everyone, I’m once again planning to do a long flight in the C130J!
You might remember me doing this last year, which ended anticlimactically. I’m hoping to successfully circumnavigate the Earth and make it back home.
Flight time will be approx. 60hrs! See you in the skies!

Reason behind this year's flight

My live subscription will be ending on the 15th at 0700Z and I won’t be on a yearly subscription anymore. I’ll still be around but for some months I won’t renew my sub.

What you need to do
  • Refuel my plane when I need it, I won’t be at controls
  • Check the updates below
  • Take photos

I hope you know the c-130 can literally fly for a long, long time the fuel consumption ratio to the burn rate is ridiculous ,so where ever you’re going you probably are going to make it. What was a 5 hour flight once I turned into a 3 hour flight of speed and I still had a lot of fuel left.

I’ve done it before:

Good luck! I think you can only refuel 3 times a session so you may have to stop over somewhere.

If you post the original message here


It would be great as this clogs up the forum and the topic above is the Official Refuelling Request Thread. Or you can post the topic here and there :)
