Hi Doug,

 

Im doing a delivery flight to YSSY in my new Queen VH-OEI Qantas 744. Started at KPAE and flew upto PANC then an overnight there and no en-route from PANC to VHHH Just passing Nagasaki :).

 

From VHHH i intend to do a short hop to WSSS then onto YSSY. Having a great time so far the aircraft is amazing and lives upto the PMDG standard in spades.  Ill post some pics at some point.

Steve - I couldn't agree more.  What amazes me is that the new Queen makes me feel like I'm flying the real thing... the sounds, handling, and overall environmentals.  The whine of those RB211s spooling up on the take-off roll was thrilling.  As a landlubber with clipped wings, this is the closest I'll get.

 

Trips to YSSY are nostaligic for me.  I retired about 6 months ago from Lockheed Martin after 35 years.  I had the pleasure of more than a dozen trips to Sydney over those years and many of those trips were on a Qantas 744.  Reliving that experience in Prepar3D with the Queen is a real joy.

 

Post some pics when your delivery is done.

Hi Doug,

Wow thats impressive 35 yrs at LM! i bet you have some great memories and stories to tell.

Here are some pics of my delivery flight of Qantas 744 to YSSY. I decided to do a multi sector delivery flight and stopover on a showcase tour to some major hubs :dance:

 

my flight plan route was,

  1. KPAE-PANC
  2. PANC-VHHH
  3. VHHH-WSSS
  4. WSSS-YSSY

 

Departing KPAE on and overcast morning

Is Qantas intl using Gate 61?

 

 

Occasionally, I've seen QF use "pier C" (not sure about gate 61, though). They can't always get what they want.

 

Having said that, Pier B looks completely empty :Tounge:

 Thanks, Steve. Those shots of the Queen are spectacular! I've always loved YSSY and flyTampa has done it justice. See you in the skies...
