I arrived back at Niue after some delicate negotiations with our financiers and to set up the aircraft for our next flight, desperate times call for desperate measures. I made track for Turtle Lodge, a safe house up the coast. I didn’t have to introduce myself, the doors opened as if by magic, obviously someone was keeping an eye out and flipped the switch. I was shown to the lounge, JG was already there and in a bit of a state, so much so he still hadn’t changed out of his flight gear. Jasmine relayed what had happened previously, and JG was taking a small drink to calm his nerves. With the fake baton in my hand (yes, I could tell Jasmine, but I’ll play along with it) I made for the launch site. The goons will never expect this, I sniggered. Our contact, Felix, in the Secret Intelligence Service has secured a Fury 1500 UAV. I stowed the baton and made for my Phenom 300 where I will be the FO armed with a remote control to fly the drone, because the drone was commanded by satellite I can make my way ahead and fly her in from there. At the allotted time the Fury was launched. The flight will take many hours and should arrive around dusk. All systems appeared to be working ok: We headed for cover: This was the last we will see of the sun for a while: Meanwhile, in a little over an hour we arrive in the Phenom: Sat on the apron, I can see Coff is already here in his BAC One-Eleven, there's no mistaking that livery: Odd, I hang around for a while to watch a couple of dodgy characters taking an interest in Coff's aircraft, spotters maybe? They shouldn't be airside. grr: About 20 miles out the drone suffers a catastrophic failure and the engine cuts out, it all goes quiet: The glide range isn't brilliant but we are still on target. I swing out to sea and head for the ship, that will put me in line for my landing (crash!) site: Low and slow, we pass overhead between the masts! Over the top of the terminal I can see the drone coming straight at me! Visual confirmed by the drone. I duck as the Fury nearly takes my head off, it hits the ground with a dull thump Fury is surveying the area: I remove the baton and mosey off to the FBO: Once changed, I make for the terminal to meet Coff. Those pesky spotters are still roaming the apron. Sim: P3Dv4.1 Scenery: Pacsim Rarotonga + Orbx Weather: ASP4 and REX Storm Force: Phenom: Carenado Fury 1500: Default P3Dv4
