Whacky Racing: The Impossible in Nepal @ VNKT - 132300ZFEB20

Season 2 Continues!


Last time we went heavy with the XWB, and this week we take it down a notch to the TBM930. To counter this, however, this week will bring the biggest challenge of this series yet. We’ll be flying from VNKT to VNLK, however, there is a twist. Aircraft must try and land on runway 24 at the airport to complete the event. This is very hard to do, so if you have to use the other runway we understand, but to win you must use 24!

To make it harder still, there are altitude restrictions for this event. You can find these in the TFRs, however, the general restrictions are 12,000ft, then a stepped climb up the side of a mountain up to FL210. From there you have to navigate a steep descent into VNLK, an airport at 9,000ft!

Event Plan

  1. Spawn at VNKT and taxi to runway 02
  2. Take off and follow the TFR gates
  3. Follow the TFR rings up and over the mountains. You must adhere to the altitudes here to complete the event
  4. Continue to Lukla
  5. Attempt a runway 24 landing at Lukla!

This might be the one day where I might not be able to come. But I might come if I’m available. Either way, great looking race Misha!

Do we have to come to a full stop on 24?

Never mind; just read “you must land and stop”

The chances of you making it are slim, but it’s fun to try 😉

Oh COME ON!

I’m in the middle of a flight, and my landings at Lukla are great especially in the TBM!

Maybe this is just the moderators way of annoying is to death trying to win for their entertainment 🤔😂

@MishaCamp I have a question do we come in nosediving over the mountain at Luka for a landing on 24?

However you want to do it!

I have a technique already picked out 😉

After multiple attempts, I am happy to say that I landed and stoped an XCub on 24 at VNLK.

Not sure about the TBM though 😂

Can’t wait! I’ll be sure to stream it this time :)
