What are you gonna do first when it's out?

Yep, he posted a pic from Flight, pretty funny honestly!

Truthfully though the Icon is the plane I want to fly the most in MFS.  I love flying amphibians in bush flying territory, searching for isolated lakes and landing in them!

You prefer the Icon, even over the Premium Deluxe 787??

The title should be self explanatory 🙂.

I will do an around the world tour in the TBM 930! Starting from my home airport LKTB, going east and returning back from the west 🙂

First thing I will probably do is see if I can import the FS 2004 Wright Flyer or Curtiss-Jenny into the new sim. I love to tinker with MS flight sims.

Yes, I read it from my work computer which didn't show me the pic, so I didn't know it was in jest.

It's kinda hard to land that on a small lake. 😄

That's exactly what you had to do with Flight...

For those who haven't caught on yet, that screenshot is from Flight. He just faked the "watermarks..." 🎨

Possibly, Bill, possibly. Though if memory serves me correctly, there was less snow in Hawaii - even in winter - on that wedding yacht mission. 😉

Nice try with the overlay from a Flight! screen grab and adding Your ID: OzWhitey in Photoshop! 🙂  Anyone else interested to know this is NOT from the upcoming version!

Well, part of it is from the upcoming version, and other parts of it - not so much. You can decide which is which. 😉

As for the backstory - it is possible that MS thought - "Hmmm...Let's try and recapture the glory of Flight. A product that lives fondly in our memory, just like Windows Me, IE 6 and Microsoft Bob. So...Wedding Yacht Mission v2 it is!". 

Edit: For any of the 2013 kids who are getting nostalgic for that MS Flight mission, here's a video to bring back the memories:

I'm going on a VFR flight departing from Telluride Regional (TEX) in the Bonanza G36, flying around the area for an hour, and landing back at the airport.

I will buy the addon for CGX for MSFS just like I did for FSX:SE. 

Nice. I hope there will be one for MSFS. Since I stopped at FSX and that was years ago, and skipped the entire P3D era, I don’t know how that add-on is (although I’m pretty sure I know which one you mean), but if it’ll be available I totally need it. Just for the memories.

Do a lot of short flights in the part of the world where I live (Southeast Asia) to see how it looks in the new sim. So a lot of hops around Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Philippines, Taiwan etc.

Fly past my house as slowly as possible, peer through my window and see if I can see myself flying a plane on my PC.

Meanwhile, I'll be looking out of my window to see if I spot my plane flying past. 😊

 

 

(No, I'm not stupid enough to think any of the above is possible!)

Takeoff from KPWK, fly the Chicago VFR skyway past my apartment and land at 1C5.

Flight I've done a bunch in real life and it's always my first one in a new sim.
