Here's something you don't see every day...

Recommended Posts

Taking my new 747 Lufthansa textures on a rare, complete across-the-pond flight (rare for me as I seldom take a break from painting long enough to actually fly my paints on a full, long-haul flight.:blink:).

 I am replicating LH flight 483.  This is normally an A343, but since I don't have a A343, and quite fond of the 747, I replaced the equipment (Virtual world prerogative, LOL) .

So about 55 mins out of KTPA on my way to EDDF, I pass the actual LH 483 on the inbound flight to Tampa!  Hehe....strange happenings sometimes in our flightsim world.

You can just see her between my number 1 & 2 engines, a few thousand feet below me (I was at FL330)


I'll post some more screens of the flight (the 1st half) shortly.

Strange things do indeed happen from time to time. I always try to take off at the same time as the actual flight. On approach to Heathrow from Cape Town (BAW 58) once I wasn't off the runway fast enough, so the plane behind me was told to go around, nothing unusual, except the conversation started like this: Speedbird 58 Heavy, go around! I say again, go around! Acknowledge.

Thanks guys!  Had an enjoyable issues, and landed at EDDF on schedule.  I would post the pics of the flight here but we're not supposed to according to the forum rules.  So I'll eventually start a new topic.

Nice work on the livery!!

Thanks Patrick!  I've been working on a Lufthansa project in the background and will share it with everyone when it's complete.  During this project I've been tweaking my original LH textures, including reworking the tail texture so she is now a photo-tail, looks much better IMO.
