KORD KUBBS J547 FNT Q824 HOCKE Q905 SIKBO Q907 MIILS N362A ALLRY DCT 51N050W DCT 52N040W DCT 53N030W DCT 53N020W GISTI DCT SLANY UL9 DIKAS UL18 GAVGO UL9 KONAN UL607 KOK EBBR

Fuel was an issue for my 60% load as I'm using the B747D... only 6,5 tons of fuel remained at touchdown.

Fabulous set of shots. Is that a PMDG QOOTS?

Nostalgic Sabena(sigh!!), a byword for travel in 70s-80s.

Thank you Rick. That is indeed the PMDG QOTS in Prepar3D v4.

I'm a product of the late 70's. So in the 80's (we lived south of Brussels), each time winds were blowing from the East, I saw the Sabena planes passing over our house on final for what was then runway 02.
And in that era, traffic at Brussels airport was for 70% Sabena/Sobelair.

Cool!  It's nice that you tube flyers can do these long flights without OOM's

Nice pics, well done, excellent route.

On remaining fuel, iirc there should always be 30k pounds left as the hydraulics are cooled by the fuel.

Well, that's thanks to 64-bit engineering.... ;)
Running the sim with 80% of the sliders at max settings.
If I did that 6 months ago in v3, I would have OOM when approaching the English West Coast (ie: when London is being loaded in the sim)

Wow, I did not know that about the hydraulics. I remember seeing (youtubing) a 747 landing with 15-20 tons of reserve. It made me think that she had more reserves then an A320 has of fuel capacity :)

Great shots of a great airliner in a great livery! thumbS_zpsguhr7arm.png
I also remeber this airline from my younger spotting years, though more in the white-tail-blue-logo version.
