Bully707...Those shots of the A300 are beautiful. I think that the A300 is one of the best Airbus Aircraft ever developed.

I'm away to do a flight in a LH 727...Be back with shots.

It's either virtual.planepictures.net or Photobucket. I was lazy, so it was my pics on virtual.planepictures.net, hence the yellow bar with the wierd black lettering.

Nice shots Bernd! Especially nice vintage ai, especially AF lump. I'd have a word with Prestwick atc though, that's a tight turn off base leg, did you put her down ok? Notable absence of landing shot there (upside down in a field was never a good look for a Trident)!! Wink

I put her down OK...but "not exactely" in the touch-down zone....  Wink
Quite high rate of decent, too.....but nothing that beast couldn't handle!!!!

I didn't put any t/d shots in the post, because A.net kept telling me this thread wouldn't exist!!!! Strange...when I took out two shots (landing and parked...) it did post my shots!!! Go figure....

So I will put them here when I'm back from work!!  Big grin  Wink

Hi Bernd!

just got that trident, and it's amazing! lots of knobs and gauges... Big grin Big grin

But it's soooo complicated, it has good manuals, but i'm still figuring how to set descent/ascent rate, the autoland (well, i'll have to read a bit!), and how to start the booster!! (tried all combinations in the starter panel, but didn't worked at all  Sad )

anyway, enjoying it a lot!

Panel view descending (manually) bound to Santiago de Compostela!



Landing in SCQ, far right from the centerline, but being my first landing with the Trident, and after two whiskies (please, don't take me as an example), I think I did it quit well!  devil 



Good night everybody!  drunk

I found it here:

http://www.flightsim.com/cgi/file?rk...&fsec=-1&for=maltby+fs2004+trident

It's freeware, but you have to be registered...

It's a great aircraft! great handling, very realistic dynamics (I'm sick of those massively overpowered default boeings), and lots of details (great VC too!)

The only unrealistic thing is that I take it almost 4000 nm far nonstop!! Big grin Big grin

Holy crap! Great shots Bernd!!!

Is the file name on that Il-96 ilyushinil96.zip?

I might post some Bonanza V tail shots. Their consitered Retro right?

If any of you guys are looken for a good Beachcraft Bonanza V35 you can get a great one at Avsim. The File name is beech_bonanza_a35.zip. You'll need to find a good panel though. Witch I have to do yet.

Hi there!!!!

Matt...that IL-96 was found over at www.simviation.com and has been there for a while now...just found her yesterday, though.  Smile

Vasilis, filou....!!!!
Jasu, tikanis??? (Boy..I never could figure out how to write it...sorry for messing your language up so badly...!!! )

That Il-86 really is a iron-pig!!!!
And stubborn as a mule.  Wink

As for the Tu-104...you'll need top run the engines up to full power with brakes on, when centered on the RWY...and then pray for a RWY that is long enough.... rotfl 
No...really...revv up the old engines and set the trim and flaps accordingly....

Godspeed
