Recommended Posts

How high can you fly?

 

Thanks to Jan Kees for this months theme  :hat:

 

How high can you fly? We would like to see any shot from flight sim that shows an aircraft at very high altitude.

Please start another thread if you have questions about contest screenshots, they clutter up the contest thread itself. Thank You :)

60,00 ft above Rogers Dry Lake after taking off from Edwards AFB in an F-20 Tigershark that has a 55,000ft service ceiling.  Porbably could have gone higher but my CO frowns upon pushing the limits :P

One of our F6 Lightnings doing what she does best heading for a suspect enemy aircraft at high speed. Height at 52,000ft and still climbing.

Project USAF-Icarus; Over Crete in a Blade Electric Experimental, an appropriate place for a feather weight to reach for the sun.

I pegged the altimeter at 32,000 feet. The autopilot said I got as high as 32,500 before turning around to land.
