Lookie What I Got! UA L1011 By Artist01

Wed Apr 18, 2012 7:01 am

It took a while but check it out! I commissioned Nick to do UAL L-1011 N510PA. This ship was flown by my friend Retired UA Capt. Don Kyte (see profile). L-1011-500's were never in better shape than during the short 18 months flying in UAL livery.

God bless the L-1011 and the crews who flew and maintained them.

Now that Nick has the template, you all can commission him to do your own L-1011!

Whoa, you're back!

That's a fantastic print...the Saul Bass livery looks awesome on the L-1011. I'd put it at second only to the Widget, of course

Haha, Thanks! Had some life issues to attend to that were a bit de-motivating. I'm doin better and starting to sim again. I especially miss everyone in the screenshot threads. Thanks for the *&>%$#@* welcome back!

Kevin

I'm still here but rarely on the forums.

Also, not cranked up FSX in about 9 months! Might have to do so soon.

Hope you are keeping well.

Yeah Kevin and others, I'm still around. Needed to take a time out, for most of the same reasons as you did.

Ah well, that's life, stuff happens - take it as it goes. I saw your message and I had to reply - it's wonderful that you are back around here.  

I'm back into flight-sim again. The long story was that Bootcamp on my Mac Pro wouldn't boot into Windows.   It'd go to a grey screen when I held down option at startup (to choose the OS). Well - I had given up, was nearly ready to clone the HDD and do a fresh bootcamp installation, when of course, I failed to connect the SSD properly. That was the thing I'd mapped to a folder in Windows to house FSX.  

All the sudden, woah woah woah - it works!!! Took months to work out that. Nobody else could pin point it either, even the normally switched on Macrumors people.

Well it works now, and it's very nice again.   You may get me back into Concorde again.

Beauty of a L1011 print as well, really nice.

Ooooh, can't wait! I still have 2 of your screenshots as desktops on two of my client computers. You always post top notch stuff.

Oh...YEAH!
I'll never forget your Concorde screenshots! Full throttle, on it's tail launches.

Is the word "LENGHT" spelt wrong in the specifications?

Yessir, gotta love those rope-starts. I was truly saddened the day the last of those were retired. Those, along with my beloved 727's...

Man, we're getting old. If we were aircraft, we'd be scrapped. So many of the youngsters here will never know the ear piercing, solid rocket booster cackle sound of a 100 -200 series

......and the rich smell of non-by pass jet exhaust.
