Ambitious request!

Recommended Posts

Three months ago back in this thread I had some great help. Bruce (brucets) excelled by making me a terrific sim of a holiday flight from Gatwick to Malaga. I've since incorporated extracts from that in my DVD of the holiday (which also featured a certain Icelandic volcano that stranded us in Spain for an extra 5 days). Here's a 2 minute extract from that DVD.But despite superbly detailed instructions from Al (Chock) I'm afraid I've still not mastered all the elements involved. I'd love to be able to do what Bruce did for myself, but so far it's out of my reach. So I'm back with a Big Ask!My son (with my two small grandsons) left the UK on Thursday 30th to start a new career in San Diego. I saw them off on the Virgin Atlantic 11:50 flight from Heathrow to Los Angeles. I've been assembling 'source material' for a short family DVD of this 'Farewell'. Apart from the obvious digicam photos and movie clips, I'll include monitored flight reports from various web sites, downloaded images of the Airbus 340-600, etc. But I'd especially like to include a brief sim of at least the take-off and landing, with perhaps a few shots over the USA too. So if you're still around Bruce, or any other expert who relishes the challenge, I'd be very, very grateful!BTW, is there no formal standard for flight numbering? Inconsistent methods seem to be used by carriers, airports, web sites, etc. I reckon I encountered VS7, VS007, VS 007, VIR 007, VIR007, V7 and more for this flight! I've no idea of the plane registration, although I'm trying to track that down.--Terry, East Grinstead, UK
