The Ultimate Flight Sim Flight Report Thread....

Sun Jun 03, 2007 11:17 am

this may sound weird but this thread is flight simulator trip reports with or without screen shots.

one of my most recent flight was a flight from DFW-IAD

flight 952

load factor: 76 %

using fs2004, and fspax

aircraft: boeing 757-300 continental


boarding: what a mess, about 20 minutes to board, and a long taxi.
after being denied clearance for exceed 250 knots, i had to watch my speed on takeoff, luckly i made up past 10000 ft.
without any problems, once i passed 10000 i began the movie and served drinks and hot food. then i got to my cruising altitude of flight level 300 i expeirenced heavy turbulance and desended to fl240 from there it was a smooth flight, once i started to descend into dulles i accidently started playing another movie, and that cost me about 50 points, i had a PERFECT landing and taxied to the gate without a problem.

-press prtsc on your keyboard
-open up a pictured editing program such as MSPaint
-paste the picture
-save the picture as a jpeg into a folder of your choice
-go to a picture hosting site such as http://www.imagethrust.com/upload_images
-follow the instructions to upload the picture
-copy the url link to post a picture on a forum
-paste the link into your thread

There are programs around that other members use that take screen shots automatically and save them to your computer, but you still need to upload them to an image sharing site.
