Trying thumbnails! The flight is Alitalia 718 FCO-ATH.
The gate at Rome
The queue for takeoff at Fiumecino. Of all the aircraft in front and behind me only one wasn't Alitalia!
Climbing out with a view over FCO
Descending into Athens
Landing at Athens. I tried one of those long delayed touchdowns with reasonable rollout landings. This was my smoothest and most controlled landing so far on an A320 series aircraft. My landings recently have been pretty good! See a video of it here. Sorry it's a tad jerky!
The gate at Athens.
A really fun flight, a good looking aircraft, great landing, nice vid, awesome scenery, top stuff! I'll plug ISD's rome scenery and Hellas Scenery Design Athens scenery, plus Terrain mesh available on avsim.
The thumbnail thing couldn't be easier! I'd recommend Imageshack to everyone, especially as they write the code for you! Find Imageshack here.

Is it ultimate traffic you use Amy?
To get real AI traffic, there are a number of packages:
The best freeware package is Project AI:
Download the self installer and then go the airlines page, and download the schedules you want. (full instructions included)
You can make your own AI traffic using a program called Traffic Tools, but this way you have to create every flight plan, etc. If you have the time to do it (and a lot of time is needed) it can produce some spectacular results!
Just look up Traffic Tools (by Lee Swordy) on AVSIM.
The easiest way, and sometimes the best is to buy a payware traffic package. There a number available. But be warned, the aircraft are not always of the highest quality.

i like your video although it looks like the nose gear came down to hard. what i normally do is put reversers on when mains touch and that swiftly brings thw nose down and at 60 knots it tap the brakes if needed but anyway nice landing and graphics are way kool
You cant have your cake and eat it... What the hells the point in having it then!!!
