Recommended Posts

Never knew a 747-8i could reverse without a tug just by engaging reverse thrust🙄

The standard pusback without a tug from FSX/P3D is still in the sim, I guess they didn't know it existed.

Why not? Older and weaker jets could back in the day at TWA.

That ATC dealing with tugs stuff is hilarious. They really do need to change that. And the idea that there would be no tugs available for any of the service agents at Dubai, is bloody ridiculous. Have these people even been to Dubai and seen all the flash gear they have?

'No tug huh? Guess our airline's service agent staff must all have overslept or something. Oh well, I'll just power back with four of these 66,000 lb thrust engines on a FOD-covered ramp before either asking, or being told by anyone what the status is, nor having had it confirmed I'm allowed to start the engines either, on the stand, nor knowing if the aircraft is clear of GSE and clear behind or being certain if all the doors are closed and the jet bridge is retracted and the chocks have been removed.

What could possibly go wrong?'

It can. Why the eye-roll?

It's not lawful at most airports - noise damage, abatement rules, FOD ingestion risk, etc. And even if you were allowed by ATC, there are tons of precautions you have to do.

That was to symbolise that I am learning something anew,----- as I always thought it was smaller aircraft that could do that, not a 747-8i---- like when somebody reveals something new you never knew about. Geddit?

Thanks, Alan.👍(or a thumbs-up is frowned upon too??)

Chewwy's video he actually started the airbus correctly. Alsto there are  INOP buttons so keep that in mind . also , in this video he had to re-record it multiple times for angles since there is no replay feature. So think he just skipped stuff.. I noticed he started the fuel pumps manually and i assume a ctrl-e would do that automatically.  

 

And yeah.. Asobo made it clear the sounds would be very accurate.  

 

Has  anyone posted a cold and dark tbm video since the embargo lifted?  I am 70/30 ga/tube anyways .. very interested to see that.

Like I keep saying, there's no real point in getting too wound up about this or that missing feature. If a feature is wanted by the people who end up using the thing, and it is possible for it to be implemented, then either MS or a TPD will create it.

Even Turboprops like KingAir can do.
