Hello.I am somewhat concerned about a recent flight with the DC-8 that ended in a crash.The flight was from Denpasar,Bali to Brunei airport,Brunei.The plane was loaded to the max
and sufficient fuel was taken in.The outside temp was 31 degrees Celsius.Now,I know that these are not beginner conditions,but then again, I am not a beginning pilot.
After take-off we got into a massive storm front,no way to fly around it.I initially managed a climb into the low 30's (FL 340),but I was unable to hold it,of course,so I gradually
lowered the altitude.As I was flying in a storm,I had all my anti-ice equipment working.As long as I was descending,the speeds were acceptable.But at each lower altitude
that I leveled out,I was unable to hold her there.I used the tables (Maximum continuous thrust vs RAT temperature) to try and keep level.Eventually,I got below 10000 feet,
which is below the local MDA,but she kept descending.Eventually she crashed.I have to say that I always use Active Sky P3Dv4 and there probably lies the problem.But
should a realistic flight model,like the Aerosoft DC8 has,not be able to take some punishment?
I really like this plane.And I am very choosy about my software planes.I only trust PMDG,A2A,Milviz,FSlabs,Leonardo Software,Majestic and Aerosoft.Could any of you
experienced simpilots give your opinion on this,please?
