Repositioning flight to Ostend

Recommended Posts

Gents,
With the pending release of a new Brussels scenery,i thought it was time to reposition myself a bit closer,so we can start full service when the scenery hits the store.So what better way to do this then take my Citybird 737-800 from Geneva to Ostend.

Here she is...our Nightingale,resting at Geneva...

After a 5 min wait for that last passenger,we hit the clock and start our pushback out of Gate 5.

After an uneventfull cruize,we reach our top of descend and we spot some nasty clouds which we avoid for passenger comfort.

Winds were gusting up to 20kts,so no time for outside shots,but instead a nice wingview  ;).

All secured and ready to do the ferry flight to Brussels.Can't wait to take this bird to all those sunny destinations it used to fly out of a (hopefully) beautiful scenery!.

Hope you enjoyed this little "story" and shots!
Kind regards,
Steven

Thanks for the comments gents!

I do wish we could get the MD-11 in P3DV4.That's the only bird i miss and maybe want to install V3 again,just for her.

Regards,

Steven
