Wilco Airport 2002 /737

Recommended Posts

hi guysi just had a look at the preview video and i think the 737 looks awesome! in 3D view also the ability to go and move around anywhere in the aircraft, fantastic,initially i was going to just wait for the A320 but i may buy the Airport 2002 version because of the 737the question i like to know is, perhaps a Wilco representative will have a betteridea, is how accurate the the flight deck in the 737, are most/all the buttons operable and is the FMC operable or just for show? and if so how operable is the FMC i.e 80% or 100%?thanks

I was wondering the same thing. They have showed lots of pics of the interior, which looks very impressive. But nothing on the outside.ROb

It's a 737-700 right? So it's a 737NG. Which means it has upgraded wings, tail fin, engines and stuff from the older 737 Classics..Then, is it me, or does the wing looks like the one of a Classic 737??

I put five on that! Who cares what the plane looks like on the outside the more detail on the outside the less detail on the inside, I actually think that more could have been done on the inside: but it already looks great and can't wait to add it to my sim.My 2 cents

I can't believe what you 2 young men have just said... I'm disappointed... lol! People are fighting over eye candy of the how good models are, and you're tellin me the outside is not important. what has the world come to? hehe I agree with you guys, planes are flown from the inside, but getting the outside views is cool (the more realistic the better) because then it is as if you are another plane checkin this other plane out. (am i making nonsense?) but anyway Active Camera are reasonable because ppl actually planes at airports, and Flight simmers think watching planes is cool. down to the personal level, i'm always in the cockpit during d/m and landing. during takeoff or taxi, i like taking the outside view... opinions?either way some people like italian food, some like asian food, some neither, its good where different.Al

yea i'd rather prefer full working cockpit like the real thing than see excellent detail on the external of a plane, i suppose this external stuff is only good at airports when taxiiing around before takeoff and at the gate,i rather have full operational flightdeck

If you're paying for the product, I thik developpers would have to do their best to make their product top-nothc. And a big part of that is creating a good visual model. This is the way it works nowdays...And if it looks like an NG 737 from the inside, but looks like a classic 737 in the outside, then we have a problem...

Yeah, I saw those videos too. Think I might stay in the cockpit though.. Did you happen to notice how paper thin those walls were when sitting in the passenger seats? Dont carry any sharp objects to the seats with you! :(

I cant wait to get airport 2002, and the 737 Virtual interior looks fab :) looks really really good, however i dont think a *fully* opertaional deck is present in this package, coz simulating a highly realistic 737 cockpit with all systems modelled isnt the main focus here its the airports and fsnat. And we cant say anything about the visual model unless we've seen it.Emilio whats the difference between the wings of a classic 737 and 737NG ?

I hope you all are not setting yourself up for disappointment. With the 737 remember it comes with the main highlight of the package Airports. And going by the track record with the last 3 versions of A2k series the included aircraft and panels to be honest ALL stunk. They sure looked good in the preview pics and vids but the final product (planes) were not what they were all cracked up to be.I hope you are not expecting PIC 767 quality or the PIC 320 quality in a combined product. If they were going to put that much detail in a plane and panel they would offer PIC 737NG.Johnualfan@msn.com

http://www.airliners.net/open.file/284732/L/This is the Wing of a Classic 737, You can see there is some sort of mm..."thing" between the inner and outer flaps. This is present in Boeings 737-100 trough -500Now, the NGs have larger wings, and a redesigned flaps and pylons designs:http://www.airliners.net/open.file/271666/L/There isn't such a "thing" (hehe) between inner and outer flaps.Now, in FS:This is the Ariane 733http://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3dc183c758ba8780.jpgThis is AFG's 737-700 (in the NG family)http://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3dc183e359232ddc.jpgNow, in the video I saw the wing had that "thing" (heheh I hope you know what I mean by now) that only Classics have....
