[20:55] - Take off at 176kts, with a pitch of -4deg and 103895lbs of fuel on board
[20:56] - Gear up at 522AGL
[20:56] - Climbing to TOC
[21:07] - Mid Air Refuel! 23271AGL

This was taken from one of my logs, just wondering what causes a mid-air refuel to be triggered.
At 20:55 I had almost 104000 lbs
and in 12 min I'm at FL230 and needing fuel?
The MD11 climbs not too bad, but with over 104000 lbs of fuel it would take a bit more time than that. :lol:
I see it pausing sometimes when I'm not pausing or even on a different screen.
Just curious....... I am using Windows 7 (64bit) FSX, Active Sky (Evolution), FSPassengers for each flight.

You wouldn't happen to be exploring some panels during that flight?

The LDS-767 has panels to tweak passenger count, cargo load, fuel load. I'm wondering if you didn't browse something like that and click on SAVE instead of CANCEL on your way out (or something equivalent).
