I'm justifiably proud of this one so there's several screenshots.  :tongue: It took me three restarts of the sim from desktop, dodging OOM dings (taking off from Gatwick rather than Luton helped!), and not flying through the upper metalwork of the bridge. I tried my best to line up as early as I could, then lit the burners whilst trying to manage the pitch up due to the speed increase :blink: all the while with single digit frame rates - good job I cut my teeth on ZX Spectrum flightsims!

This first one's a bit deceptive - looks as if i hadn't got to the bridge, but all these shots, with the exception of the one at altitude were taken whilst I paused the sim in one place.

See? Not too shabby a job lining her up whilst exceeding 500 knots indicated! :cool:

This SWS bird is quite tricksy, but again good fun, especially once the FPS goes to double figures once more..

Would an aftermarket London scenery give me better FPS or worse do you think? I guess it's difficult with Heathrow just down the road..

Cheers.

When I saw you pointed toward the tunnel all I could say was "No, don't". Looks like fun.
