DIA, A319s, & a bit of Sea-Tac...

Recommended Posts

My family emergency required a bit of flying.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/68074.jpgMy ticket said Gate A38 so I thought this A319 was my ride.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/68075.jpgI think they borrowed some of DIA's design from Star Wars... "Cloud City" anyone? :-lolhttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/68076.jpgThis guy turned out to be going to Kansas City. Note the satellite dish... they let you watch 24 channels of Direct TV for $5.00 on a 4 inch screen in the back of the seat ahead of you. I watched the free default channel with a MapQuest map showing your position, speed, and altitude. :-)http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/68077.jpgThis was my plane... bound for Sea-Tac.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/68078.jpgI took this one yesterday afternoon at Sea-Tac. No... that isn't my plane... this is gate S3... my plane left from S5 and it was identical to the one I went up in... maybe the same one. That is... however... my mountain! :-lol (Side note: I was walking around and talking with FlyBert on my cell phone when I snapped this. ;-)) ((And I have no idea how they plan to board this puppy. :-eek))

Nice shots, it was great to see that the real Mt Rainier over the back of the airport. But your shots show that the FU3 default models for Seatac are not too good - a lot of this detail should have been included. I've found it very hard to get good photos for Seatac though - UK was much easier!Glad you're back safely.RobD.

Rob,"But your shots show that the FU3 default models for Seatac are not too good - a lot of this detail should have been included."I think FU3 does a good job of presenting the Sea-Tac terminal. Keep in mind that the plane is parked at S3... meaning the South terminal... also Rainier is Southwest from there... you are looking away from the rest of the terminal facility.

Rainier is southeast of Sea-Tac, Puget Sound boy. ;-)[table][tr][td valign=top]http://www.avsim.com/other/usaribbon.gif[/td][td valign=center]Bob "FlyBert" StilesAVSIM Moderator[/b][/td][/tr][/table]"Don't stall on me, I have to soar!"~Richard Harvey, 1/21/2003

Robert,I have a Just Planes video of SeaTac International, and that is very likely to have some good shots of the terminals and other buildings. Quite how I get these images to you (short of sending you the video itself) is open to debate ;-)Chris Low.

Video or DVD? If you can make it run on your PC you should be able to pause and take screenshots. Just an idea.Hans Petter

Well, this is getting a bit off-topic but any ol' video can be digitalized. My brother-in-law is a film freak and he just converted all of his old home videos to DVD. You might search for "Pinnacle" or similar software if you're interested. With the right software you may scoop anything that comes through your TV cable / runs on a VCR and save it as AVI, MPEG or whatever you choose. Then you may edit it, add caption and take screenshots etc.Hans Petter

That's very kind, but I don't think I will have any time for a while! Work is a bit out of hand for now. I have finished Luton and will have to pause for a while.RobD.
