I have to admit, I haven’t flown heavies for ages, especially not the queen.

Yes I know, that's the wrong cockpit. But hey, it’s freeware and of good quality, so I don’t complain. And so far I haven’t found a decent flightdeck for the 741

Now comes the fun part.

When I said earlier that I haven’t flown heavies for some time, this includes landing this sucker

Now what??

Ooops, I don’t think I should be here

Geeee, that’s tight

Did I fly this thing? No, officer, I didn’t, I’m just a silent observer. And I need to go now, my wife said I’d better be on time for dinner

Thanks for viewing

Bernd: Seems like your NZ (Mt. Cook) tourist enterprise was rather profitable...This is clearly no rusted-all-over/mud-spattered C310!

Seriously: nice shots of the Queen here...and I'm biased towards this particular United retro-livery. Also, the (dusk) approach shots for Victoria look pretty...

Long flight done (or well-observed), as the case maybe, do enjoy your dinner now...🙂...!

He didn't show us pictures of the Pax cabin, who knows...

Anyway: Great pictures. I can imagine that after the flight, Bernd, you actually felt like after a good vacation.

Or like needing one.

😊😊😊 I needed a break from all that "decontamination" 😊

I like this retro-livery a lot, as I've flown with UA out of Taipeh via Seoul to LA a lot in their 747SP. Brings back many fond memories

You are right, Bryan. I also don't think that in RL a 747 ever landed in Victoria, although the runway is long enough. That is what I like with our flightsim, you can try things you are certtainly not allowed to do in RL 😉

Thanks Harald. I felt like after a good vacation, it was really nice flying the Queen again
