Recommended Posts

Taxying out at EDDP. Usually Lufthansa fly this route (at least on one youtube vid I watched!), but the a/c was in for C check so a loaner UPS MD-11 was tasked. (What? Could happen, maybe!).

I've already done a 3-point landing (almost!)... Oh, you mean the nosewheel too!

Maybe on your scenery collection HL, but my stock scenery was just beige everywhere (I was keeping an eye out for the eye though! Perhaps I missed it under the cloud cover)  :sad:  :P

 

Cheers for the comment!
