Some see lines, others see between the lines.

Fantastic shots there!

I am currently heading in the opposite direction, EGLL-KBOS... due into Boston in approx 1 hour!

I am also using the BA 777 (Delftblue Daybreak tail!)

Unfortunately screenshots will be few and far between on this flight as its all dark!

Cheers

Do you have sceneries for both airports? Because they look a lot better than my JFK and LHR look...

I have Meljet 777-200ER and Meljet 777-300ER
Do you know the approach and landing speeds for the two aircrafts and the flap limits/settings via speeds?
I always have a hard time landing them at the touchdown point.

I usually land at about 140-160 kts (Of course this is after burning a lot of my fuel over a long flight).
At about 280kts I begin to lower flaps. I mainly do it by feel now. I'm sure there are people here with far better technical knowledge than me.

Well 777WT, there really is no landing speed I can tell you, it depends on the winds, and how long the runway is. Ill tell you right now the range of IAS I land in is 145-160IAS with Flaps 10-25

I tend to fly the 777 more than any other aircraft on fs9, and it does depend a lot on weather conditions and wind speed as to how you land, and also how much fuel and pax you are carrying...

but the overall speed for landing the 777 is 140-160 kias, usually at full flaps.

I'll check out those landing speeds. 140-160 IAS @ 10-25 flaps.
Hopefully that'll work well on the 777-300ER.

Here's some of my splash screens I made for my FS2004 using my flights  Big grin

Well I tried the suggested landing speed on a 777-200ER, it works well.

But on the 777-300ER, it drops like a rock!
Even with only 50% fuel in it and 1000 lbs on board..

The stall speed of a 777-300ER with 30 degrees flaps and landing gear down is around 175kts. Landing is around 180kts which works ok.

Well that is very odd, remember when 777's land, they are not full of fuel, they usalley proballey have around 8-15% still in them.

50%!? I had always understood that these big jets (and even the small ones  Wink/being sarcastic) land about 10% of fuel in them, as Birdjet737 says?

Has anyone found a good panel for this plane. I love the a/c, but I just can't find any good panels.

Yer prolly not using the right approach method. If you come in on ILS, you should be 190 KIAS between 20 - 8% of fuel on final approach (yes, even with the 777-300ER. Any 777 model). As your speed drops below 210 knots, let out your flaps... 1 -5 at 210, 10 - 15 at 200, 20-25 at 190 and full by 180. I am on the ILS beam 3000 ft ASL when I hit 190 KIAS (Use indicated airspeed. Alot easier). Drop gear between 1,500 and 2,000 feet. By this time you should be around 150 knots. If you're using an autothrottle approach, turn off throttle and hold down the F1 key to idle your engines. You should settle onto the runway, and flare while your doing this. If you flare too much, you'll tail scrape or drop like a stone, and if you flare too slow you might embed your nose wheel.


Also, try playing with weight settings.

Great stuff

I decided to use your method and it works well!

I picked Edwards AFB and put in 20% fuel, 200 lbs payload (just the Captian Big grin )
and took off, did a 180 turnaround after reaching past the Glidescope range and came in at 210 knots, flaps out and all the details you mentioned, and touchdown was a breeze Big grin

Now let's see how it'll act with full pax on board  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Birdjet737, where did you get the airport scenario from?
check the cracks on the floor!!

And how do you do to take a screenshot?
