  1. When last we left you we had just arrived at KMCO in our Delta CV880. Since then we have hopped from KMCO over to KMIA in a National DC-10, sadly I do not have pics of that flight(the CLS DC-10 doesn't have a National livery). We rejoin the action at Miami International Airport circa 1966ish. Short hop from KMIA up to KPBI, back to Delta. This time in a lovely and elegant lady, the DC-7. Enjoy!! Note: the first few had the Shift-Z info in them at the top, I'm sorry...... Hear the throbbing sound of 4 Wright R-3350 Duplex-Cyclone radials pushing out 3,250 HP each.... Lifting off out of Miami.. Climbing with the engines spitting out fire like a dragon... Reached our Cruise of 10,000 feet. She has a bit of a nose down attitude, still learning the proper settings. Beginning our descent, had to use the Speedbrakes to help get her whoa'd down a bit. Autopilot has her a little high on the Localizer. Just passed the numbers. Truth be told, probably flared her a bit to high. Touchdown... Clear of the active, whilst a Bahamas bound DC-3 climbs into the air overhead. One last shot of our beautiful Lady... Was a fun flight, I'd had a realization a few weeks ago when I finally got my Yoke working in Windows 10. I, once again, have a working Throttle quadrant and can adjust Prop and Mixture, and have a bit better control of the throttle. So I headed for the CalClassic site and started looking around. Expect more of these Propliner flights in the future. Low and slow, sometimes, is the way to go.
  2. Wicked Thunderheads

    Great shots, I'm wanting to get a flight in her again, as I haven't flown her since the big update, at least not "in anger" I did a couple patterns with it. I first need to get my butt to a good place to fly some hops with her. As for the TFDi model, it was a good plane when it came out, the last update to 1.0.8 fixed pretty much all of the issues and she's a joy to fly, especially hand fly. My only real complaint is the wonky way the reversers work.
  3. ATA L-1011 to Honolulu

    :jump22: :awesome: Home State Airline Love!!!!
  4. My Next Frontier

    very nice! Will Florida West be fully merged as well or is it staying "independent"?
  5. Holy ............!

    What gets me is, I know it's supposed to do that, but the sheer suddenness of it is just mind blowing.
  6. Now for something completely different! Too many QOTS2, 777, and Airbuses..(Airbii?) Flights, let's go back a bit. Atlanta to Orlando with Delta, in speed and style! Delta 93 KATL -KMCO Convair CV-880 At the Gate with a fellow Speedy next door Pushed back and starting up About to wake up the Greater Atlanta area GE CJ-805's hurtle us away from the runway and also fumigates the Atlanta Municipal Airport area. Climbing out of Atlanta Cruising at FL310 and M.878 TOD First Notch of Barn-Doors MCO just off the Left side Nearly there Rolling Out, surprisingly, if you follow the procedures, you don't need the Reversers Vacating the Active This was a fun flight, Pics would've looked better in the day, but oh well. They actually turned out pretty good for an HJG bird designed for FS9! I figured this would be a nice switch from all the "Modern" birds to something that's actually a "complex" plane to fly. If you haven't tried one of these you need to, it's a very hands on plane, you're constantly monitoring and making adjustments to it. But man, it's fast. Making plans to fly it's bigger and faster Younger brother soon! Hope ya'll enjoy them.
  7. QF763's Queen Repaints

    Looks Great!, You gonna have a stab at United's Charter 74?
  8. Well, I had this flight all planned for a couple weeks, however I could never quite get it to kick off without some kind of issue, usually FSX crashing. Usually around the same point in time. Quick Google of the .dll that Event Viewer said was crashing, turned up the same issue with FSX for Win7 64bit users from a few years back. Tried the fix and it worked! However the flight finally getting out was not without more issues, a couple were related to the TFDi 717 itself, the final one was the ATL Scenery. Anyways, Here's few shots of Delta 1648 MDW-ATL in the TFDI 717. At the gate at MDW Taxing to 4R..insert some quote about escaping a plague of Locusts ;) Climbing out of MDW Behind us is the desolate winterscape of Illinois, below is the desolate winterscape of Kentucky, between the two is the lush, green paradise of Indiana. Unfortunately, I have no approach and landing shots. This is for two reasons. #1, I checked the active Rwys before I started the flight, when I arrived in the area I discovered the AI had swapped ends on me, so I made a quick straight in. #2, I had installed the Demo for ImagineSim's KATL 2016. I thought my system was pretty good, but the Demo version of the airport brought my system to it's knees. I was trying to land manually in a slideshow. It, "evened" out a bit after touchdown. Here we are vacating the Active Parked at the Gate. Hope you enjoy them.
  9. Southwest Short Hop

    Thanks guys, What size do you use with BBcode?
  10. Below are a few shots I took during my last flight. Short hop between Indy and Midway. Haven't posted screenies in, literally, years. so this is a little test. Cruising over Central Indiana at FL210, below is Grissom JRB home of the 434th ARW Burns Harbor in the background, Indiana Dunes National Lake Shore along the Lake. The desolate winterscape ahead is Illinois.....Even Gary, below us, looks better by comparison. Taxing to the terminal, in the background a couple Birds seem to be having an argument over Taxiway space. I realize the pics are smallish, what size does everyone use when they post? Also, Flickr, do you use embed or BBCode?
  11. Hawaiian hopping with the 717

    Great Shots! Took long enough for someone to post something of her...
  12. LTU MD-11 to Menorca

    Great shots, I miss my MD-11 in FS9 and FSX!....... Hopefully PMDG will remedy this soon-ish.
  13. 737 Take Off

    Empty plane, Max thrust......757 could do this with a load on it. The thing is, the video lacks perspective, all we can see is from the behind so the view makes the climb look more impressive then it probably is, we need a side view from the departure end.
  14. Your AI..... :wub: :wub: makes me all twitterpated
