My Screenshot Thread - Amy

I'll start off with some competition winner's I've had in the past and also include some of the latest from my last 2 flights with Emirates.

THESE SCREENS CAN ALL BE ENLARGED! I suggest you do so for some as the detail will be much better!!

An Avon Sun (my own holiday airline) departing HER (Heraklion, Crete)

A better view of the same aircraft for you all to get a good look! Reassuringly green!!


Avon Sun is the holiday subsidiary of Avonair. Both operate from Bristol Lulsgate (BRS/EGGD), my home airport.

Avonair has a fleet of 6 Bombardier CRJ-200ERs that operate from Bristol to Major European destinations:

Frankfurt, Paris, Stuttgart, Rome, Milan (Linate), Tallinn, Stockholm (Arlanda), Brussels, Amsterdam and Nice.

Here's an Avonair CRJ

Avon Sun operate to Major Holiday destinations in Europe with a fleet of 2 MD-87s and one 737-500. The 737 is used to locations like Skiathos Island who's runway is too short for an MD-87.

Now, on to my latest stuff!

Emirates 56 DUS - DXB:

Hey!

Great Screenshots!...Where did you get the Saab 340, DC-9-30? I've been searching for models of those planes for a LONG time.

The DC-9-30 is SGA, which is all on Flightsim. That "Saab 340" is operated by Era, which don't have Saab 340's. That's a CV-580.

The DC-9-30 is on Avsim, the paint kit is on Flightsim.

Fo9r a Saab 340 go to www.pmstone.com, search civil turboprops, there's a great model with liveries and paint kit included.

In the second pic of the DXB-JFK flight, there appears to be an Austrian 767-200, am I right? Just wondering...

Hi Amy,

Fantastic pictures! Love the DXB scenery... where can I get that from? My DXB is crappy default, although given a lil bit of help from aeu7.

I love the EKA340 climbing out of DXB (12R I believe?!) looks so powerful.

Keep them coming

The DXB scenery is the payware product from flytampa. There is a freeware Dubai scenery on Avsim but it's a real framerate killer and nowhere near as good.

Yes, It's an Austrian 767-200. What it's doing there I have no idea, That's Project AI's problem, not mine!

Thanks for the great feedback, yes I think that was 12R, I don't actually remember! They just tell me where to go and I go... lol

Here's the rest of the flight:

http://www.greycube.com/hosted/ariel/thread/201/7descent.jpg

On descent over Manhatten. If i do say so myself an awesome shot, I'm really proud of this one!

http://www.greycube.com/hosted/ariel/thread/201/8final.jpg

On final to JFK... 13L? with Manhatten in the background.

http://www.greycube.com/hosted/ariel/thread/201/9landing.jpg

This A340-500 model loses some manouverability at low speeds, hence the less than perfect landing....

http://www.greycube.com/hosted/ariel/thread/201/10endgate.jpg

ATC tried to send me to Terminal 3 but I wasn't having any of that! Here we are at T4 with the engines powered down, just about to get the gate extended and let the pax off  Smile

A gret fun but long flight! Next is VS 004 JFK - LHR with the daddy, the 747-400. That'll be tomorrow hopefully!

True, but the main reason is that FS ATC don't know jack sh*t. Emirates goes from LHR T4 at JFK and gawd lang it that's where I'm gonna go!

I think if you look really carefully you can See Joey and Chandler's place in that Manhatten shot!  spin

I meant by that that as Emirates go from Terminal 4 at JFK, then I shall arrive and depart from Terminal 4 when I am at JFK and flying Emirates, despite ATC's attempts to make me go other places. I don't blame ATC, it's only as good as the person who programmed it!

As for Emirates to JFK:

EK 201

DXB - JFK with A340-500

Depart 0800 (local) Arrive 1410 (local)

I arrived at 13:37, 33 minutes early. Rock!

Great shots Amy, in fact I hope you don't mind i've now got the EK A345 head on approach shot set as my desktop background. As soon as I learn how to get screenshots i'll have a bash myself.

Ok!

As predicted, Virgin Atlantic 004, JFK - LHR.

http://www.greycube.com/hosted/ariel/thread/4/1startgate.jpg

Just started her taxi to the runway.

http://www.greycube.com/hosted/ariel/thread/4/3taxi2.jpg

Holding short with a nice view of Manhatten behind. This must be 13R?

http://www.greycube.com/hosted/ariel/thread/4/4rotate.jpg

The 747 always looks fantastic on rotation, this is no exception!

http://www.greycube.com/hosted/ariel/thread/4/5climb.jpg

Passangers are reminded that this is a no smoking flight.... as is the aircraft!

http://www.greycube.com/hosted/ariel/thread/4/6climb2.jpg

Early climb out of NY. Nice colours

http://www.greycube.com/hosted/ariel/thread/4/7climb3.jpg

Leaving JFK behind with a nice trail behind her. I think she's due for a service! Any ideas as to why all the smoke?

Edit: right now cruising at Mach .80 at FL350 over Northeast Canada.

Maybe you pressed the "I" button. That emits very non-realistic smoke on the POSKY 747's. - As it is emitted it looks like steam train smoke that goes chug chug chug!!!

Very nice shots Amy! What scenery are you using for LHR, and is it any good? I've been looking for a good LHR scenery for ages.

If you're into realism, next time you come into JFK and ATC tries to give you the ILS to 13L, don't take it - it never happens. Instead, take the VOR to runway 13L or 13R. This is the Canarsie approach, and is the normal approach for the 13s at JFK. It's pretty tricky though, a descending turn onto final from about a mile out. Kind of like Kai Tak but not as sharp a turn and you're given more time to do it. A good challenge!

Here's the approach plate:

Great shots as always!
