OFSS mission 13

Posted 10-11-2009 at 02:56 PM by radekpl

First of all, this is my first mission without autopilots.

I used these MFD.
For start:
Launch MFD
GPC MFD + in last stage Align orbit MFD

For rendezvous:
Orbit MFD + in last stage Dock MFD
Sync Orbit MFD

For deorbit burn:
Glideslope MFD for deorbit burn
AeroBrake MFD during all time
Glideslope MFD for control speed and altitude during reentry - great MFD!!!
In last stage I switched to GPC MFD

And next. Photos from Mission

Prepared to start


Lift-off from Wideawake international


SRB separation

Few seconds before MECO

Main tank separation

Pro-grade burn to increase Apogee to 340km

Situation after Orbit insertion. Correction Rinc was made during ascending.

    Hard dock on OFSS

    Module is on place. Very easy maneuver.

    Just a comment, you shouldn't have closed the payload bay doors so soon after undock, normal procedure is to undock and have a day of systems checkouts before deorbit.
    Nice screenshots though

    Garyw. Thanks. I will read more information about procedures. Space shuttle is now my favorite. But for this moment only ShuttleFleet 4.2. But for future I will try to fly with Space Shuttle Ultra. But now I am not prepared for next level
