Wow, Aharon.

 

In all the time I have viewed your screenshots here, in Avsim, irrespective of your amazing PS talents, I like the way you add history to your amazing screenshots. And you backed it up with a factual document.

 

I love the shot of the taxi past the neon lights of the Douglas factory. Class!

They would have to dive to get through the sound barrier. The stabilizer was not designed for supersonic flight. The stabilizer stalled in the dive. They had no control of the airplane until it got down to 35000ft.

Pilot: "We've reached 50,000 feet"

Douglas Marketing Exec: "Excellent"

Pilot: "The stabilizer stalled! I can't control the plane!"

Douglas Marketing Exec:"Ahhhhh!!!"

Pilot"Ahhhhhh!!!"

*plane levels off*

Pilot:"Phew! We broke the speed of sound in that dive! Thank God we're ok"

Douglas Exec: "Yes, thank Go... wait... we broke the speed of sound?"

Pilot: "Yep"

Douglas Marketing Exec"..."

Pilot: "...."

Douglas Marketing Exec: "..."

Pilot: "..."

Douglas Marketing Exec"..."

 

**DC-8 BREAKS SOUND BARRIER! WHAT A MONUMENTAL ENGINEERING FEAT! WHAT A HISTORIC DAY FOR AVIAITON!**

 

*EDIT* Never mind, that joke was as stupid as it was unfunny. I'll see myself out.   :fool:    Nice screenshots Ahron.

Thanks Aharon for taking us back in time.  Great shots!  Those DC-8's sure could put out some exhaust.
