Ortho4XP, ZL16

She sat there in my virtual hangar, almost forgotten, as I do more GA flying these days. Finally, I was able to hear her complaining about the lack of use. So here she is: the venerable, unforgettable Boeing 707

She is still in her prime 😊

It's really getting hard to tell the difference betweenX-Plane and FSX/P3D nowadays.

One of those planes that looks fast just sitting there. Nice shots.

I remember them being very loud when taking off out of Ohare.

Nice screenshots!  Where did you get the 707?  I only flew on an American 707 once, from JFK to Dallas back in '77.  Nice aircraft, loved flying in it.  That same day I flew in a classic DC8-63 enroute to JFK from Vienna Austria stopping in Shannon Ireland and Gander Newfoundland for fuel.  It was my only time ever on Irish soil.  Some of my schoolmates (it was a chartered flight on TransInternational/TransAmerica by American Institute of Foreign Study) received Silver Certificate dollar bills in Shannon, quite rare even back then, when they exchanged money left over from our European trip there during our brief stopover).

Totally amazing. Thanks for showing.

I know about this plane but haven't added it to my hanger yet.

However, can I ask about the Ortho4XP, ZL16; is this your set or did you acquire it from somewhere?

Bryan, in short, Ortho4XP allows you to create your own photoscenery in XPlane and it's free! The higher the zoom level (ZL), the sharper the image, but also the more GB you'll need to store the scenery on your HD. ZL16 is a decent compromise between quality and storage space requirements. Here is a link on avsim that explains it in a bit more detail:

https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/519995-a-basic-step-by-step-guide-to-ortho4xp-for-windows/

 If you search on youtube for ortho4xp, you'll also find a ton of info there.

Hope this helps,

Bernd
