Took my Pan Am A300 for a quick flight over Reunion earlier today

The Pan Am Airbuses fascinate me, I always associate American built aircraft with PA, the Airbuses wear that dress well I think! Great picture.

Hi all

Thanks GingerSnap  

Aerdingus, yes the Airbus look great in that livery. Were Pan Am not one of the first airline to order the A320? Bet they would have looked good in that livery.

Finally managed to get FS back up and running. Not got most of my addons in yet, but I thought i'd do a couple of 'testers' to see how it looked.

Purchased the Wilco E-Jets v.2 just before I had problems, so I was eager to get in and take a spin.

I love this livery on the E195 for whatever reason.

However, I had also just got hold of this baby...so I decided to take a quick spin...

Awwwww, dang it Granite. That PSA L-ten is beautiful. I tried to get that texture to work w/ FSX for some time. I consider my inability to fly on either of the PSA L-1011s' a major screw up.

First of all can I thank everyone for their kind thoughts and sentiments, you have no idea just how much it is appreciated. it just goes to prove what I have always thought...that this 'mini community' produces in these screenie threads, the best of A.net.

Last night I did my first FS flights since Saturday's earthquake. Now I make no claim that these following screenies are my best, far from it. No I wanted to do my own little FS tribute to the citizens of Christchurch and Canterbury region. I am not a native of the city, I'm not even an NZ citizen (yet) having migrated to NZ 4 years ago. Nevertheless I have been overwhelmed by the sense of fortitude and strength of character shown here in the past few days, so much so I will be very proud to call myself a Kiwi when I qualify for citizenship next year.

My pictorial tribute comprises each a/c type in the Air New Zealand fleet (except the ATR72 which I don't have in my fleet yet) pictured at either CHC/NZCH or at significant locations related to the earthquake.

First up Air NZ Link (Eagle Air) Beech 1900D taxiing past the Domestic Terminal at CHC (damaged in the quake)


Next Air NZ Link (Air Nelson) DeHavilliand Dash 8-300 turning onto taxiway D with the RNZ Flying Doctor Service hangar in the background.


Now the mainstay of the Air NZ domestic mainline fleet the venerable 737-300, climbing out after take-off from Rwy 02 with the backdrop of the City and the Port Hills.


A320 usually Trans-Tasman & Pacific Island services, banking and turning over the town of Kaiapoi just north of the city and badly affected by liquefaction damage.


767-200 Overflying the city district of Avonside, similarly affected as Kaiapoi.


777-200 tracking over the city's CBD still pretty much in closed off to the public.


747-400 crossing the Canterbury plain near the village of Darfield and the site of the epicentre.


Apologies if this seems a little self-indulgent but I just wanted to pay a little tribute to my fellow residents especially the unsung heroes of this time, the power and water workers who are working long, long hours to restore basic services, yet never get the recognition that those of us in the emergency services get.

Nice, was thinking of buying Concorde X but rather chose the fresher Airbus X. With which, by the way, I decided to chase some storms yesterday. Winds from 20-30 knots, rapidly changing directions, great fun in FS, not so in reality.  
Some unedited pics...just EMB light effect, which is amazing.

Apologies if this seems a little self-indulgent but I just wanted to pay a little tribute to my fellow residents especially the unsung heroes of this time, the power and water workers who are working long, long hours to restore basic services, yet never get the recognition that those of us in the emergency services get.

Not at all. A very nice tribute & lovely pics as always.

All looking fairly decent on approach to Denver...but a tailwind of 11kts is hanging around...

AH CRAP! Possibly the worst landing I've done in a 737 in a while. Emmm, Batman...you might wana get the spanners out...

How cute is the 735? How amazing is Denver Intl' Airport?

You qualify to be a Ryanair Captain, you have the basics covered (smash planes on runways)

Everytime I go to DEN on FS I find annoying the loooooong taxi to the active runway.

Some from me today.

I just put cruise control on, put some Doors on the radio, & enjoyed the drive.

Awesome. I miss 'em already. But with this whole merger thing, it looks like I'll get to work on some 737's again.
