Me and my girlfriend in our 737...

Recommended Posts

Figured I'd tweak the textures on the iFly 737 NG so it's me and my girlfriend Fiona flying it lol. I expect she'll slap me if I point out that the Captain sits on the left. :-)

Is she as excited about this as you are?

 

Actually she probably is, although she prefers horses and tanks to aeroplanes. She is mental (but in a good way) :-) Besides, since I help her muck out her horse on a regular basis, and it's bloody freezing where the stable is, it's only fair that she should endure my obsession with aeroplanes lol

LOL great idea. I should try that, it would be the only way I'd ever see myself in a 737 cockpit.

I was lazy and just used the freebie program Paint.net, since it opens and saves the DDS files no problem. I do have Photoshop, since I am an Adobe Certified Trainer, so that means I spend all day showing people how to use all the Adobe programs (i.e was teaching After Effects today). But that means the last thing I wanna do if I can avoid it, is come home and crank those Adobe programs up lol, especially when Paint.net does it just as well and loads faster. :-)

 

Lol, she does know incidentally, I stuck the pic on my FB page, so she's definitely seen it. I put a caption on it saying that it was me and her stealing a 737 during the recent zombie apocalypse. :-) She likes Zombie movies (so do I actually).

Any chance you could put a real pic of your girlfriend up here so we could see how close you got to a literal representation of her? :P

Terrible English and manners. The thread should be " My girlfriend and I in our 737" ;)

 

Always put the woman first, not yourself.

You appear to be channeling Tom Baker with the knitted scarf and hat! Perhaps you are in line to be the 13th Doctor? 😀 In any case, welcome back to the Avsim forums!

Yup, it does indeed say Born to be wild, well spotted. The pub is the Town Hall Tavern in Stockport, which is sort of my local, it's a biker's pub that has bands on regularly. I go there because I have a motorcycle, cos they have bands on, and occasionally cos I play gigs there. The walls are covered with murals of all kinds of stuff, that particular mural behind me has Wile E. Coyote riding a chopper. Cool pub and well worth a visit if you are ever in Stockport, the beer is good, and inexpensive too.

 

Here's me playing a gig there...

And here's a recording of the song I was singing at the time...

She's into tanks you say? She's a keeper! (assuming you mean tracked instruments of death & destruction?)

Slight look of Springsteen going on there, Alan.  (Hopefully a compliment!). :smile:
