A Twitch streamer’s quest to fly around the world in Microsoft Flight Simulator was an incredible display of persistence and technical ability – but the game didn’t quite let him stick the landing.

The streamer, known as ‘izidore,’ prepped flight plans, picked his Airbus out of the game’s extensive catalogue of planes and set up his IRL setup for the long haul.

The two-stream 48-hour challenge to travel the globe was set, and the streamer had taken off without a hitch – but the trip had a few surprises with internet connection errors and game crashes along the way.

Not one to succumb under the pressure of demoralizing early issues, izidore took his Airbus A320neo and trekked well into the night. Though he had unlimited Endurance and Range on his craft along with no fuel restraints, there were still bumps to overcome.

The flight was perfectly executed, but the landing was a different story.

However, the two-day flight wasn’t going to stop. Izidore did everything from constantly monitoring his computer’s connection, sleeping on stream, and more, just to make sure he could bring the plane to its final destination.

After dozens of hours talking shop with his chat, the time had come to start his descent into the international airport. The only thing left to do after circumnavigating the globe was to stick the landing.

There were plenty of questions looming about how to actually park the Airbus, but the streamer was adamant to find a way to manually land.

The notification blaring ‘Overspeed’ noted how fast he was coming onto the runway. As he made touchdown, he celebrated, but then the screen went black.

“You damaged your landing gear.” The game told him that he had crashed, prompting him to either restart or go to the main menu, but izidore was happy for what he had accomplished in spite of he bummer ending.

“I landed it, that’s a lie,” the streamer said after ‘crashing’ his plane. “I don’t care, that’s a win. We landed. That’s a landing if I’ve ever seen it.”

He was shocked at the landing, and a couple of more attempts didn’t yield any improvements, but for izidore, the feat was accomplished.

The endeavor clocked in around 46 hours and was a huge test of persistence – and one of the most impressive trips in the Flight Simulator to date.

Genshin Impact is home to loads of colorful characters, but you’ll need to spend a lot of Primogems if you wish to increase your chances of obtaining the game’s elusive five-star units. Fortunately, there is an easy way to grab a lot of Primogems without breaking the bank. 

MiHoYo’s free-to-play title, Genshin Impact allows players to explore every inch of its vast open-world completely free of charge. In fact, you can get through the entirety of the game’s current content without spending a penny. However, if you wish to increase your roster of characters and gain access to some incredibly powerful weapons, then you’ll need to score yourself a lot of Primogems.

These twinkling gems are used to purchase the game’s Acquaint Fates and Intertwined Fates, which are then used to Perform Wishes (Gacha). Primogems are also used to refill the game’s energy/stamina system (Original Resin), making them vital to both acquiring new characters and farming the game’s deadly dungeons. While you’ll naturally get this in-game currency as you progress through the game, there is an even easier way to add more Primogems to your account.
