Nice pic. That seems like a HILEY2 approach into ILS 30
Bingo. we cut through runway 27L.

Well i hope you were actually planning to arrive at KFLL and not KMIA (as you posted).To much spirits(beverage) with your turbulant ride to stir it up onboard can do it to ya! :( Nice pics anyway.Cheers!T. Headlam

we were originally supposed to fly on the 757-200 then i guess U.S. Airways changed there minds and we flew on the 737-400. But yea, the turbulance was pretty good! I brought my garmin gps on the plane just to see his ground speed, average GS 458mph. At times when we were banking to the left, he would catch the winds going on the opposite end of the plane and his GS would be 560 - 575 mph.

Yeah, I was about to say, that had to be FLL.At Miami even if u do the straight in ILS 30, 27L/R you'd be much higher flying over the coast... MIA is a few miles inland.

If those screenshots are FSX, they're definitely more like "as real as it gets".I guess it must be time to change from FS9. :( Colin B

:( You didn't know, I run a 1,000 GIG graphics card from EVGA. It cost me an arm and a leg, but at least it produced those "realistic" graphics. :(
