I have used FS over 10 years and use FS9 now. I still think that the default 737 works OK for me. I also like Mike Stone:s nice 727-200, especially in Lufthansa old livery. I am not so crazy about different aircrafts anymore. Instead do i try to emprove my flying skills.

Project Opensky's 747-200,743. Liveries of SAA and Corsair SEX. Can't beat em'! Amazing job with wing flexing and 32bit textures.

Im a big fan of wing views, for some odd reason it makes the experience much more interesting. My personal fav. is the Meljet 777 and then the POSKY 747-400 with the wing views.

Best regards

I am using the Meljet KLM 772 but have added the PSS panel with working FMC. Now i have the best of everything. A programmable FMC, a delightful aircraft, working thrust reversers and wing views. I also have Active View 3.1 installed. I'm happy!!

My PMDG B1900D is my favorite plane of all time. Then it has to be Jon Murichson's BAE-146 200 then FFX 737 300, then POSKY 747 200.

My usual favorites that I revisit a lot are the iFDG 757 in Song colors, Project Airbus and iFDG A320's in Ted colors, and the Meljet 772 in United's new colors.

But most recently I have been logging a lot of hours with Dreamwings' EMB-170 in A few different colors: American, LOT, and JetBlue. Lovely little aircraft.

Captain Sims 727 Professional in Ansett's red livery.

However, I'd love to fly a L1049 Constellation (in HARS Connie livery) if I could find a good version of it. Most (free) downloads I've tried lately don't impress.
By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?

A Posky 747 or MelJet 777 coupled with their respective PSS panel - can't go wrong...

Right now I'm flying EK9970 (FRA-DUB) in that great big SkyCargo jumbo. Cruising at FL360 and M.862 with a favourable 40kt tailwind. About 2 hours out of Dubai, hoping for the straight in RW12R ILS app.

Wish me luck! :P

Good thread you've got going here.

Hello,

Favourite A/C by a long stretch is the DC-3

BTW, could anyone recommend good sites to download add-on scenery/Aircraft/Liveries, etc for MFS 2004 as I have yet to download anything.
Cheers,

Biggles, your best bet for downloading aircraft is http://www.avsim.com and http://www.flightsim.com (Need to register and it takes ages to get in). Go to Avsim then near the top click 'File Library', there you can download thousands of aircraft, scenery, panels etc.

I'll work on that, but I need to know which aircraft?

I like my PMDG 737NG, I swear that is the best payware money can buy.

The Boeing 747-400. Nothing beats the King of the skies. I like to graphics and details of the POSKY models, but find them hard to fly (but not impossible).
The 737's are great too.

Out of the flight sim aircraft I like the 737 and the beech 350.
I usually don't bother with add on aircraft because unlike the default aircraft, they don't have a GPS.

I usually don't bother with add on aircraft because unlike the default aircraft, they don't have a GPS.

It is quite simple to add the FS9 GPS to any panel. Go into one of your default panel.cfg files and open using notepad or similar text editor and copy and paste the GPS section into the panel folder of your choice. Remember to change the sequence number to be in line with your panel.

If this isn't explained clearly enough, let me know and I will do a more detailed instructions including screen dumps for you. Not today though, I am off to work.
