Ian Harrison Flying empty on ferry mission. Still testing P3D v4for stability. Trying tonight with Weather program but no ATC. Misjudged fuel badly and missed my approach BUT no freezing. Seems like Radar Contact is the culprit.
Dieter Magnet Captain, even veteran B744 captains shouldn't start taxiing on engines 3&4 only. Also when one misses an approach - you should go back an aim for that same runway again and not the opposite end, despite no weather. Hope the next flight is better.
