Previous thread is getting large, so I am opening the new one for the month of April and hopefully May as well!

So here is a little Samba dance in my version!

It all started in Denver,Co with a United flight to Cancun,Mexico

Upon arrival we flew LAN Peru to Lima,Peru.

T/O from Cancun!

http://i151.photobucket.com/albums/s132/Tanguay18/Flight%20Simming/Quito.jpg
Crazy T/O in Quito...everything is hard in SEQU...approach and T/O, both are very challenging! Very fun place to fly!

Well, it's another day and another flight to PSP for me...this time it's UA155 from SFO:

Another development: my interest in the C/KC-135 and all its derivatives has sort of turned into an obsession, so I finally added some of HJG's -135 offerings to my fleet:

Excellent shots all.

Apart from a few shots here and there I've not managed to get a full flight of shots up, out of sheer laziness mind you :p

Took at UA 738 from ORD to BUF this morning.

Love that water, is that FSX or FS9 and what, if any, is the upgrade used for it?

I was planning on uploading some new shots that I took of a flight last night, but despite there being nothing on television, I didn't do my entire flight Thanks to the "Pause" feature in FS9, my flight is waiting for me to finish it after work tonight. I am flying between Minsk and London and I paused it right near the border of Poland and Germany. I was hoping to spot a new addition into my AI skies, an E175 used by the Polish Government to replace the Tu-154 lost in the horrible crash several years ago, but I have not seen it yet.

Cool combination, I really like it!
I use REX and I am not very happy with it, as a weather engine it simply sucks in my opinion, textures are good, but not excellent. I like Active Sky way better, but as I can't run my FSX on setting I would love to, I fly FS9 at the moment and use REX.Oh well, on one of these days I will have a monster PC and will run FSX on highest settings...lol
Great pics man!

Working my way back to USA, today I flew Copa Airlines beautiful B737 w/winglets from SVMI /Venezuela/ to MPTO /Panama/ as CMP225. I used PMDG 737-700 in Copa Airlines livery which you can download on PMDG website.
Flight flown on Vatsim.

It's FSX. I use the FSX Water Configurator (http://www.strikingsoftware.com/downloads.shtml). I'm not exactly sure how mine is set, but it's easy to adjust depending on what you want.

Now for a couple of new shots- Bring your bags, everyone, 'cause we're taking a ride on the Vomit Comet!

Ah, I use FS9 still for my flying. However I am going to reinstall FSX to get back into VATSIM flying and use it solely for online flying.

I did MSQ-LCY with an iFDG A318CJ and took a lot of pictures, mostly of the AI that I encountered on the way. Here is one shot after I parked at LCY.

Quoting 8b775zq (Reply 18):

Your best bet would be to install a screenshot utility that can take and save screenshots into a filename and format that you choose. I use a program called SnapShooter (found it at www.avsim.com) and it saves a .jpg to a specified folder everytime I press the Print Screen button. After the flight I use an editor to crop and resize the images as needed before I upload them to my account on www.photobucket.com so I can then share the images.

Alternatively you can do it the old fashioned way of pressing print screen and then opening a graphics program and pasting the image in there and saving it. This is not really practical as you would need to minimize FS9 to do this.

Well I have downloaded the Dreamwings DHC 8-Q400 and I might be tempted to try it out. But first I want to fly my planned flight that has been on hold, London City-Shannon-New York JFK with the BA A318. Last night I installed all but one missing carrier into JFK, tonight I'll install my plans for DHL so I can see the big yellow cargo haulers flying around, and then I'll be ready go trans-atlantic.

Hey guys!

Great shots as usual from everyone!

I´ve been away (forced) from FS due to not having a machine to run FS and been busy, but no worries, I am cheekely running FS on the laptop from work (external HD) it´s not a top end machine and cannot handle my lovely Airbuses but at least it will keep me entertained until I get my own rig.

So without any further ado here we go...

Easter has arrived and most people go on holidays, MIAspotter is not going to be left behind so... I kidnapped Aerdingus, borrowed a King Air 350 (from the nice folks at AFG) and set off on a few days of fun in Croatia!

What? MIAspotter is NOT in an LX Airbus?? hell is freezing over...

I think they are supposed to be Dreamliner wings, but they funnily enough look like Dreamlifter wings...   It's harder to open the doors on that plane properly than it is to actually fly the thing the right way. PMDG's model of the plane is as usual top notch.

Here is another repaint I did for PMDGs B747-8i:

http://www.totalnfs.net/c_d_files/2011-4-24_19-59-23-871.jpg

Classic colours for Lufthansa, but they needed to be adapted to fit on the B747-8i. So they aren't quite the same as the A321 retro-jet D-AIRX. You can get the repaint on the other message, along with the All Blacks and Singapore Tropical repaints that are now also released:

New Boeing Colours For Pmdg B747-8i Release (by cpd Feb 16 2011 in Aviation Hobby)

Here are a few more shots from my finally completed NRT-LAX flight:





The highest speed I did achieve on that flight was 635kts GS, and I got 41,000ft eventually before having to descend into LAX at night. The descent was a bit crazy, lots of other planes flying about - no rest for the eyes, and one or two TRAFFIC, TRAFFIC warnings.

I'm not game enough to do a return flight LAX-NRT, as it would appear the headwinds will be nasty and it'll take a really long time! But with the big event happening in the UK soon, it seems like that's where the VIP transport plane will go next.

Reeeeally, what's she like to fly? In the sim anyway lol

It just has the standard B747-400 performance, so there are no surprises - it's easy to fly. The doors are a matter of pressing the right keys in sequence to open them properly and not get silly conflicts between side cargo doors and the rear one (close one, open the other at the same time, etc).

Wow! Sweet mother of Jasus that is a beauty.

Thanks   I'm thinking of painting the LH 50 years Boeing colours on a B747-8i next. I could put it on a B747-400, but I prefer the 747 Dash 8 paint-template, it's far better thought out.

Another possible paint-scheme might be Qantas' Nalanji Dreaming, if I can find enough decent quality photos of that plane (VH-EBU, B747-338). If any of you want to help locate good clear reference photos - I'll try and take on that challenge.

This B747-8i has the Landor colour scheme once worn by G-BNLJ, a 747-436 titled "Cities of Pheonix / San Diego".

Speedbird 16 Heavy leaving Sydney, headed for Singapore. Takeoff was from RWY34L, with usual KAT1 SID going out over the suburbs of Homebush (where the 2000 Olympics were held), Blacktown and Penrith in western Sydney. In fact, it goes out almost over the top of Penrith Lakes, the Olympic rowing venue for the 2000 Olympic games.

Been a while since I have flown, last night after work I planned on flying LCY-SNN-JFK as BA001 with the Project Airbus A318. Due to two of my favorite local sports teams being on, the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago Blackhawks, I made it as far as SNN. When I departed LCY, two planes in the queue before me was the AI controlled BA001 doing the same leg that I was, which made for confusing ATC communications.

I just completed the longest flight in my life, it was SNN-JFK, which isn't too far, but I started it last Tuesday and completed it today.   This is the finishing touch on my BA LCY-SNN-JFK flights in the Project Airbus A318.

Never race a B747 (unless you are in Concorde). B747s always win!

Those things must be about the quickest of the normal airliners getting around. If I'm in the MD-11 in FSX and flying along at M0.83, it's inevitable that a B747 will catch up and overtake the MD-11.

The one with a bit more room at the end of it (don't remember the runway number). A light B747 can land quite slowly.   It took many attempts with a few go-arounds and I can imagine the people on the ground screaming "power, power, WAVE OFF, WAVE OFF".

Max autobrakes helps too, along with every bit of reverse thrust.

I'm now on my way out of Singapore, headed to London. On the B747 FMC, the LEGS section is showing 20 pages! It took a long time to type in all of those. It's very hot in Singapore, climb performance was poor - it's telling me at the moment I won't make it to London with enough fuel to meet the reserve fuel I've entered - but I think it will make it there with enough. I won't run out of fuel though - it's still saying I've got enough.

Must be the hot weather causing that to happen.

Mount Fuji in the distance. There's a Japanese proverb that says "When the skies are clear, Fuji is angry." That actually wasn't a problem today, though the skies close to Tokyo were pretty angry. I was so distracted with trying to land this thing in 1/4 mile visibility that I forgot to take any other screenshots!

Did a little prop action last night from FLL to FPO (Grand Bahama International Airport, Freeport). FLL scenery is freeware from Mach-1 and even though I have installed the Freeflow Bahamas scenery, there are no shots of it because I forgot to install some tree textures and had big while boxes everywhere that would ruin those shots. Aircraft is the Premier Aircraft Design Dash 8-300.

That is really cool!! And great pics. Is that Air West like Hughes Air West? And did the A380 make it?

Barely, but yes! (It was completely empty except for the center fuel tank, though)

Nice shots as usual everyone  

Well, finally I had some time to complete a FS Flight.

Spring/Summer is here and it is the time where LX starts doing charter flights to exotic places (Edelweiss flights, operated by LX hardware) so I always jump at the chance to fly into nice, sunny and new places like Antalya, Heraklion, Kos, Split, etc.

Today we are going to Split, Croatia!

I loved those ol' Hang Gliders...a very underrated aircraft. Pity they never developed an NG twin-jet version, a real opportunity missed.

True, I had a few nice flights on them, lots of funky noises, and in LX configuration, very comfortable as well.

I recently did a flight into CLT, a city that I grew up in back in the mid 80s. And that got me thinking about doing a flight into my hometown of EVV. Since there is no commercial service between CLT-EVV, I flew to DFW. DFW is one of the cities that has service into EVV and it is on American Eagle with Embraer jungle jets, which was a perfect time for me to dust off the Posky ERJ-145. Commercially speaking, there is not much going on at EVV, MQ has a few flights daily from EVV to both DFW and ORD. And a few Delta Regionals has service as well, other than that, the airport is quite except for some GA traffic, bizjet traffic and the random cargo service from smaller airlines. My grandmother used to live across the highway from EVV and I remember back in the early 80s the jets (probably 727s and DC9s) shaking the house as they took off or were coming in for landing. How things have changed. Anyway, enough boring rambling, onto some boring shots.
