Okay, one more, guys.

UPDATE:

Aquila entered the atmosphere this evening on schedule, and was heralded by twin sonic booms heard on the ground at Wideawake International at 21:50 UTC as it passed overhead.

Lumbering around its heading alignment cone, the spacecraft maintained a distance of 20 kilometers to the runway as it settled in for final approach.

Yes, it has been a while since anyone has posted some screenshots of their mission.

Well, when/if I manage to help this project, you can be sure I'll practically litter the place with screenshots!

Atlantis just left for flight number 16. Simple mission, so I will try to post plenty of screen shots as I go along, keep things exciting, and prove I actually flew the thing.

---------- Post added at 05:01 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:23 PM ----------

Atlantis shortly after lift off from Kennedy Space Center


Nominal MECO, no OMS-1 required. Pitch manuver to capture pictures of the ET


Performing the OMS-2 burn to put Atlantis into a rough 365km orbit.


At the aft work station opening the PLB Doors and deploying the Radiators.


Atlantis is configured for Orbit Ops, ready to proceed with mission procedures. Thanks to Tex for not including the OBSS, I dont need to worry myself with that busy work


Atlantis back where she belongs, in Low Earth Orbit.


My office aboard Atlantis, the Left Seat on the Flight Deck.


---------- Post added at 05:07 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:01 PM ----------

Looks like it will take a few days for me to catch up to the OFSS, I will post some pics when I get closer to it and start the rendezvous.

---------- Post added at 07:01 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:07 PM ----------

After taking 2+ days to catch up, rose the orbit a few times, a plane change burn, then time to being rendezvous.

Was significantly off the plane of the station, so that took some juice. Offset some of the burns that raised the altitude to also get a closer relative inclination, then fixed the rest here:



Got everything checkout and set up for docking:


Approaching the station from underneath, got visual from the rear windows:



Got to about 650 feet, then performed the RPM:



Pitched up and got into docking attitude:



Until I realized that the PMA is not oriented that way, so I need to roll the Shuttle on to its side:




and finally docked, ring retracted, hooks closed, and now to leak checks

Robotic Ops!

Grappling the MPLM with the Shuttle's RMS arm.


Handing the MPLM over to a station arm.


Docking it to the station, to then unload the supplies and fill it up again with trash.


MPLM is undocked.


Hand it over back to the Shuttle's RMS arm.


Might be unorthodox using the Shuttle's arm for this part, but by doing it this way, I was able to secure it in the Payload Bay using the RMS dialogue and not have to edit the scenario file.



Time to undock.




And time for the flyaround to document visually the station.







Seperation burn from the OFSSIII


Deorbit burn to set up a night landing at Kennedy Space Center.


And I had just about enough OMS juice to complete the deorbit burn....cut it a little close...


And here we are arriving at Kennedy Space Center, runway 15



Welcome home Atlantis.

Those ISS shots sure looks nice. The model even looks better looking than the shots I've seen of the real thing.

Think you mean OFSS, not ISS.

Either way, it still looks better than the real deal. If only the ISS looks as nice.

ISS is still a nice looking space station. And it is a bit bigger than the OFSS is right now.
