DRIVING an F-16 in Google Earth Flight Simulator I'm bored and playing with the Flight Simulator hidden in Google Earth...

Try this: Take off from VNKT (Kathmandu airport). Well...don't EXACTLY take off.

Let me explain: Set Ø° flaps and only ¾ throttle. Make sure that you set full FORWARD trim. Once you get rolling, give right RUDDER (NOT aileron) to come to course 030°. Sit back and enjoy the show. If you take off at any time, this won't work.

The F-16 will "drive" through the Himalayas and over Mt. Everest. Don't worry about crashing. If you have never become airborne, you cannot crash. You may notice an odd phenomenon as you are driving. Sometimes, the mountains become suspended in space with stars above...and below. Weird, but fun.
