4: Turn Back, fly over the NDB Beacon & fly outbound at 100 degrees
Click the Manual Turn knob on the auto pilot to perform a right turn of around 20 degrees bank.

The Attitude Indicator shows the bank angle across the bottom in 10 degree increments.
We are aiming to stop turning when we are pointing directly at the NDB beacon.  That is when the red ADF needle is pointing straight up.

To settle onto this heading smoothly, click the auto pilot's Manual Turn knob back to the central position 10 degrees before the heading we want.
So looking at the ADF indicator here, we take off the turn when we hit the 95 degrees mark.

We are now settled on the correct heading to intercept the NDB beacon.
Speed should still be between 200 & 210 kt, at an altitude of 2500 ft.

When we reach the NDB beacon we need to fly off outbound on a heading of 100 degrees.

As you reach the beacon & go past it, the red arrow will start to swing around.
When it does this we need to have turned onto a heading of 100 degrees, again by using the A/P manual turn.

Once past the beacon, the red arrow should be pointing straight down.  (If you are being really accurate you can adjust your position so that it is)
We now need to fly out 9 nautical miles & then turn back onto the ILS approach.  But we need to slow down before the turn, so we will need to select 20 degrees of flap at around 6 nm out from Brize Norton.

Since we are using the default Microsoft scenery and we are actually reading our DME distance from Fairford, we will need to select take off flaps (20 deg) when the NAV2 DME is reading around 13.5
Note - If we were using Nick Black's scenery we would be looking for 6.0 on the NAV1 DME instead.

Keep the power setting the same & let the speed bleed off.  We are aiming to settle at a speed of 160 kt, so when we drop to around 170 kt, start putting in a little more power.
For a steady 160kt, we will probably need around 82% RPM.
