Recommended Posts

New with their upcoming KSDF. Looks like they are taking full advantage of P3D V4!

What aspects are you referring to, brother Mitch?

Looks like a new management system for cargo, which in KSDF matches real world operations, and directly integrated with the airport.

I did this for real at FedEx. Not very exciting. :laugh:

I loaded trucks at UPS during college. If anyone moved that slow they be re-tasked to a different employer ;)

i begged for memphis, louiseville and indianapolis, now 2 of the 3 are out or coming, memphis is the fedex hub of the world and louiseville is the ups hub, indianapolis is the second largest fedex hub, sadly noone has given indianapolis any attention and it was a brand new airport in 2008 and also my home airport from birth. now orlando is my home airport, i am glad fsdreamteam is creating so much detail. i just hope i am alive when it's released. i was diagnosed with cancer 3 months back and hope i can get rid of it, but it'd unlikely. anyway great video.

Is there a V4 compatible 767?

I think that's a 777...

I also work at a cargo company. Yes the person is moving slow and it's boring. But, it's so realistic!!!! Think about how much they are trying to cut budget on hourly employees and BAM! It all makes sense!  Save the company >$20 and hour! (Please do NOT don't look at costs for naming football fields, or golf tournaments, or adhoc flights, or empty flights that go back out empty, or sending the sales team to Europe on the company's dime or...all the other BS).

 

Also do not mention that the pilots left the beacon on. They are Gods compared to everyone else! Remember that!

I guess I should elaborate. It wouldn't be exciting for me now but when I was in my early 20's at the Superhub unloading 727, DC-10, MD-11, 747 (Old Flying Tiger Plane) and the new Airbus A310 it was exciting. I actually enjoyed the offload team. I did all the jobs working all the loaders and driving tugs along with throwing boxes. 

It did amaze me that when FedEx started receiving the Airbus A310 I was one of the few that was qualified to load and unload. Me and one other guy use to load an A310 by ourselves. Most of the loading process was automated. I do remember it snowed (rare in Memphis) and snow had accumulated on the tops of the containers. We didn't think anything of it and loaded them. The co-pilot comes on board and says you guys are going to have to unload all the containers and get the snow off. He said the water would pool in the belly of the plane and cause issues. So we did and got the plane out on time.

It's a 767, and my money is on a partially-functioning LDS 767 used just for the sake of the video. Unless someone has been able to get it functioning fully in P3Dv4?

The level-d does not have a freighter version so it’s not a LDS 767. My guess is it’s the CS767 but it’s not in works yet according to CS unless FSDT is beta testing it.

Well I admire FSDT for doing stuff like this. I think they are one of the very last companies to be around since the creation of Flight simulator, and they keep on making new and innovative stuff. Good for them..
