WoW! It does look really impressive! I like how you can open up the engine cowlings! The folding wings look really good also, but I don't think that any airline ordered that option. They add to much weight!

That looks brilliant!
It's 16:50 UK time and it still isn't available for download.

I can't wait any longer!

I just download the planes (United and British Airways) and although I didn't fly them yet (it's late here) These 777's are the BEST looking triple 7's for FS2002 I ever seen!


My first flight using the plane will be tomorrow flying the United plane from Honolulu to San Francisco.

I'm currently using the United 772ER for SFO-TPE. I like these 777's better than POSKY. You have the wing and cabin views, not to mention a lot more detail outside.

Damm real eh  Big thumbs up

The RAT is in Maint.Mode, i think thats the tailhook, the three assignments you need to change are the main doors, the tailhook and folding wings

STUNNING!!!!

As a photographer I love the sun reflecting on the fuselage and how it moves as the aircraft turns - exactly how it is in real life. And I still get 30fps.

I am using it with thw PSS panel and sounds - fantastic combination.

What seems to be your exact problem Nick? I'll take a guess that you may not have pasted the correct file into the FS2002 Aircraft directory. When you open the zip file you have to go to the file with the exact description of the airliner concerned..... e.g. British Airways 777-200 G-VIIC etc then paste that to your aircraft directory. I hope that might have helped?

How frame-rate friendly is it? I think I might try it, but I want to know about that before I download.

I get 30fps with the Meljet against 50fps with the PSS777 (outside views in flight).

This thing is one of the worst planes I have ever downloaded!!!

It is way to over-powered, and when ever I land the gear collapses!!!


-------------------------------------------------------------------

Just kidding, I must have downloaded a POSKY.

For those of you that don't have PSS, there is a great panal that has been up-loaded to avsim. Also you might try linking the sounds from the Flightcraft A340-600.

This plane is simply amazing! I am a big POSKY fan, however Melvins' 777 is just a far superior design in comparison to any other 777 out there. My advice...................... DOWNLOAD IT!!!!! Top job Melvin!

The UA 777 is GORGEOUS! I will d/l the Delta one tonite. Microsoft should be ashamed of their crapy 773! Better yet,hire Melvin to do the big jets for FS2004!

Well I tried to fly Maiu to HNL,but the DL bird locked up! I had to CRL ALT DLT to get out. Also,when I am in the main FS2002 menu,I click to change location,an dI get totally booted out of FS. Right to the desktop! Same thing happens with the fedex 727 I d/l'd from vfedex.com. Any help? BTW my system is Dell 2gig , 512RAM , XP .

I operated a CDG-LAX leg last night with the UA model (a bit of nostalgia - I was on this flight for real almost two years ago).

What a beautiful aircraft  Love

I can't believe the detail (especially the articulated main undercarriage), and I still get good framerates  Big thumbs up

The aircraft is a real challenge to stabalise with a full load of fuel once you are initially airborne. I don't know if it is more realistic or not, but it sure is more challenging.

B727-200.



P.S. For something real freaky - the gate that I was instructed to taxi to once I exited the runway at LAX was the same gate that we used on my real flight two years ago  Wow! (twilight zone music plays in the background).

I can't seem to be able to open the main and cargo doors. Shift+E opens the engine and landing gear doors. Shift+e+2 does absolutly nothing. Anybody know how to fix this?

Thanks

Dinker,

There is nothing to fix, You just need to read the Readme.txt file.

Nice aircraft. Of course it's better than Posky's 777, posky's 777 is over a year old, and was designed in FSDS. The real competition will if/when posky releases a 777v3 in GMAX.

***WOW!!*** What a plane! I flew the UA bird IAD-ORD. The only thing I can fault it with is when you retract the gear with the taxi light still on,it shines thru the cockpit til you shut it off. Other than that , It's perfect!

It has been some time since POSKY has released a new aircraft. Their 757 has been in the works for close to 14 months. (The new 747 V3 was brought in by a new member and was finished by the POSKY team)

This might me a very stupid question, but how do I get into the cabin and walk around? When using Ctrl+Enter, I only go back about halfway, I never get into the actual cabin, what should I change?

As beautiful as the DL bird is,my computer hates it. As soon as I try to load it,I get booted out of FS. I'll try to fly the Soaring Spirit one. It likes the UA one,though.  Nuts
