Well if you're gonna go down, you may as well go down somewhere with interesting things to see 😁

Casual chat at the pyramids:-

"So who'd you come to Egypt with?  AA, Delta, British Airways?"

"I flew here myself, came down in a parachute and hit the ground at 1700 feet per minute"

"Oh..... ok"

😄

I thought the no fly zone was much further from there. 😉

Very cool. I love that last pic.

Kevin,  I thought the challenge was to land her on the tip of one of the pyramids and balance her there.   I've only managed to do it twice in my many attempts in real life. 😉

Hi All,

Hi Raul, yes thank you! We have received the updated submission and I have sent it to the release managers for evaluation. Thank you!

Hi Raul, the trailer looks great! The parachute deploying is definitely a unique moment. Thank you for sharing, and we look forward to having the Sting S4 release on the Marketplace.

So I am still waiting confirmation on the release date..

Thank you all.

Working at the speed of Microsoft. 😞 

It has got to be agonizing for you Raul!

I could be snarky an say "1st time dealing with a marketplace release?"...but we all know the inherent issues plaguing it, one of them of course is initial releases that the Dev has submitted, being held for reasons only known to them....what Raul is suffering through right now.

And the other...well just ask disgruntled Carenado Mooney owners how long it took to get a show-stopping fix through the marketplace a while back. 😡  That episode was a textbook example of the blame game, getting so bad that Carenado did an extremely rare announcement to the public stating why the announced fix was not in the Marketplace for several weeks by then.

To be honest...I try to avoid any purchase from there out of principal, and especially aircraft, which have a tendency to need fixes after release (no fault to the devs for the most part...its just the natural progression of the dev cycle).  Thankfully, @simbol Raul's plane will be so solid at release that I will have no reservations about buying her from the marketplace! (plus after Fabio's stellar review of her....how can you NOT want this day one if you're an avid simmer?)🙂 

Personally, I think Microsoft is just scared that when they finally put it up on the server and release it, it will break their servers with all the insta-buys! 🤣

Wishing you all the best Raul!  There is not a more deserving developer on the market IMO. 😉  Shower him with money guys!  He'll just use it to make better planes for us!
