Nice shot.

Do you happen to have a real world A350 checklist? From any operator.

The one that ships with FF A350 isn't realistic. It's more like Do this, do that, rather than check this or that.

I just use the one on the centre display, I find that one works okay.

The tractor unit for the tanker looks better suited to carrying a Russian ICBM than towing a tanker trailer :) 

Ooh, shiny airliner! :cool:

 

EDIT: PMSL re: checklist!

Yup, I think it's a MAZ 537, usually used for transporting tanks and missile launchers if I recall correctly, although it does, or at least did, get used as a fuel tanker tractor in Eastern Europe. A little unlikely that there'd be one at Manchester, it's probably because Flight Factors developers, whilst also including people from Germany, the US, Holland and France, are principally from Russia and the Ukraine. It's part of the FF A350's ground support stuff, rather than part of X-Plane, although as I understand it, those FF guys are also part of LR's development team, so the model might be in X-Plane somewhere else, presumably driving around Eastern European aprons.

Anyway, I think it looks cool, and of course being refuelled by a cool-looking tanker is far more important than accuracy lol.
