Very impressive, Herman.  Microsoft Flight Simulator, this ain't!

 

Speaking only for myself, I don't mind your posts at all.  As a bit of an aviation/space junkie, I enjoy reading them.  I'm seriously blown away by the quality of the graphics.  After looking at your above list, I can understand why.  :)

Very impressive. I remember one of the reasons I wanted a Commodore 64 so badly was to run subLOGIC's Flight Simulator II. We have come a long was since then.

Warning - Just don't look at the price tag for this cockpit setup!  :huh: 

The ATC software is identical to mine.

Too late!  I don't think that I'll be adding that to my Xmas wish list.  :lol:

Flight to the City of Magic

 

Our A320 British Aiways flight is parked at Teminal 5 (gate 512), London Heathrow Airport (EGGL), UK with the destination being Václav Havel Airport Prague (LKPR), Czech Republic.

This is an actual scheduled flight of approximately 1.5 hours.  Cruising altitude is 35,000ft (FL350). The weather is calm but with considerable cloud cover.

So fasten your seatbelt and... let's fly!

 

Our flighplan

London Heathrow is always a hive of activity

qqpwak5.jpg

 

After Tower approval we are cleared for takeoff from runway 27R (270 degrees, right-hand side)

Our aircraft takes to the skies above initially requiring us to climb to 7,000ft (FL70) and thereafter in stages till we reach 35,000ft (FL350)

Heading into the cloud cover

We can see the Thames estuary below as we head towards Dover for our very brief channel crossing

sntoA3q.jpg

 

It's only a very short hop across the channel as we can already see the coast on the other side of the channel (Belgium)

YMZzQfO.jpg

 

We continue over Belgium

After Belgium, we cross the border into Germany

Finally, we are flying over Czech territory

Our altitude is slightly to high at this but is soon corrected

Unfortunately, the gates were not operational and therefore passengers had to leave the aircraft by stairway and transported onwards by bus to the terminal

Now there's plenty of time to explore the beautiful City of Prague!

 

Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed the flight.

 

:)

Any country without an extradition treaty?  :lol:  :P  :lol:

 

My smart-a** comment aside, does the Trump organization still own that?  Belay that question.  I just found the answer:

Mark, the link does not seem to work for me.

Here's some aircraft info I found... https://en.m.wikiped...Trump_Force_One

Hi - Yesterday I made an attempt to compile a full flight video (unedited) of the low cost carrier EasyJet from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport to Liverpool, UK. Based on an actual flight.
All went reasonably well with exception to the taxiing activities at both airports (I definitely need to refer to airport charts!).
Normally, you would see more activity displayed such as crew / passengers, baggage / cargo handling, catering trucks, fuel trucks, etc but that would simply make the video too long.
Anyway, the main aim is to give you an idea...
Get ready to immerse yourself in a virtual environment and enjoy!

Magical Northern Lights!
 
Just completed a short domestic flight using a Scandinavian Airlines (latest livery) Airbus A320 from Kirkeness (ENKR) to Tromso (ENTC) in the very north of Norway.
Daylight hours at this time of the year are very much in short supply. Temperatures were at sub-zero which is to be expected.
Now fasten your seatbelt and lets fly...
 
Our flightplan across the northern region of Norway (Finnmark Province)

Due to the low temperature, we are first required to go through the de-icing procedure

We taxi towards our assigned runway 23

As there is no separate taxi lane, we access the actual runway so as to eventually make a U-turn for our departure

Hope you enjoyed the flight.
Having personally experienced the Northern Lights, I can confirm that they move identically in the simulator as in reality!

Another great flight, Herman.  Many thanks.

 

You were wondering where your co-pilot was?  Would the correct answer be:  cowering in the washroom?  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

Just thought I'd post these videos whilst having a break from flying...

https://youtu.be/5eJGm3UgdPQ

https://youtu.be/670jQzKhafo

Also a nice video that I can recommend taking a look at involving a Bombardier CRJ series aircraft (I don't have this aircraft in my collection yet).

https://youtu.be/i094R5nVfkA

Till the next time that we're up in the skies above!
