  1. Yes, I tried everything. Now I have removed the AFC Bridge folder from my system, downloaded it again and installed it. That didn't help. But from now on the manual execution of the AFC_Bridge.exe works. The only point is to remember to start it...
  2. I like to join this topic as I have the exact same problem. And starting the AFC Bridge.exe manually doesn't help either. Any further ideas?
  3. Thanks Mike, I appreciate all the information in your posts!
  4. Very interesting again, thanks Mike.
  5. Leg 32 Shannon - London, 01:42, 358 miles. The final leg! We departed from Shannon in the morning for a very short leg to London. Heathrow below, it is not far to our final destination London City airport. Destination in sight! On final! Here we are, back in London. On time, returning a wonderful airplane in good shape! Summary: 32 Legs 21.020 miles 78:54 hours unlimited fun! Thanks aerosoft, that was fun, great idea to do it again!
  6. Leg 31, St. Johns - Shannon, 6:16 hrs, 1872 miles This was not only the last but one leg, it was also the one with the longest flight time and greatest distance. But there was not much see other than the waves of the North Atlantic, or clouds... We departed early in the morning. The windsock tells the story of the wind. But aloft it was on our side, at times we got more than 80 kts tailwind. Finally, we got closer to Ireland. It was still windy, but we made a good and safe landing back in Europe. Parked for the night. Only one more leg...
  7. Leg 30, Halifax - St. Johns, 2:11 hrs, 496 miles It was just short flight over eastern Canada. We departed early Enroute Unenventful landing at St. Johns, despite about 40 knots headwind at ground level!
  8. Leg 29, New York - Halifax, 2:14 hrs, 552 miles We left New York City (KJFK) again after a short stop. The flight was short, we had 50 knots tailwind. The wind remained strong, so the land was a challange. Luckily, Halifax offers enough runways to minimize the crosswind component. Parked. We contine tomorrow to St. Johns.
  9. Leg 28, Chicago Midway - New York, 3:26 hrs. 648 miles We departed around 7:30 am from a busy airport. After a flight with beautiful weather we arrived in New York City. And parked for a quick turnaround, as we want to continue to Halifax!
  10. Very informative reading about United Airlines, thanks Mike.
  11. Leg 27, Sioux City Chicago Midway, 2:05 hrs. 419 miles A very empty ramp greeted us for the departure from Sioux City to Chicago Midway. During the flight we passed the mighty Mississippi River. Approaching Chicago Midway, the city of Chicago in the background. Southwest Airlines offered us a gate at their terminal.
  12. Leg 26, San Francisco – Sioux City, 4:38 hrs. 1275 miles After some wonderful and exciting days in San Francisco, the crew met at the aircraft on this foggy morning. After the usual thorough inspection of our trusty DC-6, we departed for this long flight. Crossing the Rocky Mountains eastbound. Reaching Nebraska. Parked at Sioux City, Iowa
  13. Leg 25: Tacoma Narrows to San Francisco, 2:44 hrs, 607 miles The weather didn't change much since we left the aircraft on Friday. We left for a short flight with a light aircraft. The weather was overcast until we reached San Francisco. We parked and are now looking forward for sightseeing San Francisco.
  14. And Mike caught me on my story....👍😂 Leg 24: Anchorage to Tacoma Narrows, 4:35 hrs, 1297 miles With another long flight ahead, we departed around 8 AM. Ready to taxi: Waiting at Number one: Departure into the sunrise Arriving Tacoma Narrows after a beautiful and uneventful flight. Parked for the night. No idea why the fire truck came out…
  15. Leg 23: Adak to Anchorage, 3:48 hrs, 1133 miles This flight offered a lot of surprises. The first one was nice, as the forecasted winds turned into a nice 55 knots tailwind instead of headwind. On departure, it was windy but otherwise nice weather. A short time after take-off, over the Aleutians, as surprise number 2, the navigation equipment in the DC-6 quit. Makes navigation a bit more interesting. But we reached Alaska ok. Surprise number 3 was the unforcasted bad weather at Anchorage. The wind was too strong for an 17 ILS landing, so RNAV 33 to minimuns followed. Taxiing in: Parked, done for today.
  16. Leg 22: Jelisowo to Adak, 4:26 hrs, 922 miles We departed around 8 am local time, into the sunrise. It was a very bumby ride, and the weather forecast for Adak showed a strong wind (32 knots) with the crosswind component just within the permitted range! It was already dark, because of the overcast. Hopefully, the crosswind will be in limits for tomorrows take-off.
  17. Leg 21: Iturup to Jelisowo, 3:01 hrs, 627 miles We departed early and left Iturup without any delay. The time of favorable wind was over, we had to face a strong crosswind and it took uns three hours to reach Jelisowo. We flew over the empty spaces of Russia's Kamtchaka Peninsula. Landing at Jelisowo was no challenge, we encountered 25 knots of headwind. Parked for the night and another close inspection.
  18. Nice parking shot! What an unfortunate begin of seaplane operations at Anchorage.
  19. Leg 20: Tokio to Iturup, 3:22 hrs, 816 miles At the gate in Tokio we were surrounded by airplanes from all over the world! The weather was great and we departed Tokio enroute to Iturup. We arrived late afternoon, the weather was ok but very windy with left quartering headwind of 25 knots. But we made a safe landing, the aircraft is parked for the night.
