My successful landing Big grin :



My successful takeoff: (Only just Big grin)

I landed the default 737 onto the carrier in FS2000, perfect landing except you have to practically stall that sucker to get it to land right.

No screenies though (it was yonks ago)

Daumueller - It is not listed as an airport no, for obvious reasons. But you don't have to land on it to take off, you could always slew yourself there.

A3204eva - wow, have tried it a few times but never in anything so large!

Try landing the cessna amphibion in the swimming pool of the cruise ship Big grin
You might get a bit of a buzz out of it (If it is even detailed enough for a swimming pool)

take off from runway 28L, pass the little hill between the airport and the bay with heading 282 (runway heading).

after that, the carrier will be at about 10 o' clock (heading: round about 240, depending on the point your turning).

to get out of the valley, you need to climb to 1200 feet, after that, I descended to about 500 ("runway elevation" on the carrier is at about 100 feet)

cheers,

ben

ZKSUJ: it's a payware 747 (don't remember manufacturer though :/ ) with an avsim livery. I choose Garuda since they want to get rid of their 747s anyway so it wouldn't have been a big loss if I didn't succeed  Smile

cheers,

Where did all the AI aircraft on the carrier come from?? Are they an add on package, or did it come with traffic 2004 or Ultimate traffic?
