Low Approach at LAX?

Recommended Posts

This might be 'old hat' to many, but it's the 1st time I've seen it... The MegasceneryX photo scenery at LAX - have a look. I was way below the slope, but that 747 'appears' well below me. Then I realised that, of course it's only 2D.... it'll allways look below me. Still, looks most odd...

Never seen this before either but I might have to lookout for more of these "low approaches" next time I'm flying into a large airport with photoscenery. Rich

I've seen this here and there, but always related it to some AI quirk and didn't care much as the regular basis was lacking in my eyes.However, which AI are you running there? Maybe some of the AI pros can explain why some planes come in that low&slow. mellow.png

Exactly, its a photo of an aircraft, not an AI plane. Happens all the time with photo scenery. Its tricked me a few times in the past as well, although you wont see it at night.

I'm laughing about myself right now. You guys are right of course and Dougal even posted the 2D character of the thing. blush.png
