I thought up a new method of doing the screenshot posts from now on... Basically we should do 5 days worth of pictures before a new thread starts, and judging by the excellent input we've been seeing recently, over the 5 day period we should fill up each thread very adequately.
Good idea? Bad idea? Whaddaya think?!
Anyway, here are some of my latest...
DL175 queueing for departure at JFK.
DL175 to Atlanta climbing away from 04L.
Leaving JFK behind.
Sunset on the NYC skyline.
Flying into the beautiful coloured sky.
G-CPEM at Manchester, Gate 43.
G-CPEM at MAN's Runway 06L ready for departure.
Malaysian Airlines new colours departing Kuala Lumpur.
The new colours bears an uncanny resemblence with QF's Wunala Dreaming.
I got the PF70/100 packages when they were released at the tail end of last year and was very impressed with it. The only bit of criticism of it I have is the sound pack. It wasn't the best. To me it sounded like a 92 year old kettle!, but overall, like i said, impressive (especially the Virtual Cockpit)

Great shots everyone, and sorry I don't have enough time to comment on all of them, but I enjoy looking at Hoons' awesome shots, Jimmi's crazy flights, and Gkirk's SP models! as well as everyone elses shots (Bernd, Chris, UA772IAD, etc)
And leave it to the British to pick awkward time lapses. Sorry Chris, I could not resist! (five days as opposed to a week)
I actually think five days is perfect. I was thinking of maybe restricting the number of shots per post, but that might be too cheeky.
I have a question for all of you. When I start my flights my engines are always on. So when I pushback I "pretend" to be turning the engines on. Some time ago I had a nice Azurra Air RJ-100 (or Avro 86 whatever they call it) and I used to turn off the engines, then pushback and then turn them back on... except that when I did this procedure, once I was on my takeoff roll, the a/c would not climb and just stall while the main gear remained on the ground!
So is there a way to start with engines off? If so what would the correct start up sequence be, other than just E+1+2+... and Ctrl+Shift+F4

Quoting Komododx (Reply 22): So is there a way to start with engines off? If so what would the correct start up sequence be, other than just E+1+2+... and Ctrl+Shift+F4
The correct way would be to start 2 and then 1 on a twin...and 3,4,2,1 on a four holer....
To start with engines off, I think it works if you save a flight with a "cold" cockpit and save it as your default flight....so when you change the time and departure place, you'll still have cold cockpit.
Please correct me if I am wrong!!!
Or get the A300 cockpit for the SGA/FFX A300...you wouldn't be able to use it without the use of the documents...
I like it a lot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Quoting Hoons90 (Reply 21): Adding a bit of contrast improves the screenshot, as well as playing around with the levels.
Those are great shots!!!!!
Thanks for the kudos...!!!
