Can we do this in any flight sim

Recommended Posts

Ok, we got clouds, haze, fog, photo realistic cities, and all number of other good things. But, for realism's sake, can we do this? See attached picture's of Sony's Falcon 900 recently at Teterboro, NJ.Doc Bryant

That must have been painful. The pilot probably wished he hadn't gotten up that morning! And who parked that thing next to the taxiway? Ouch!And, by the way, yes, it can be "simulated", for those who like rough games. But, there seems to be a certain consensus in the community not to encourage this kind of behavior with these games. After all,what would be next? Crashing into buildings? You see where all of that would lead.Best regards.Luis

I do agree Brother Luis we've had quite enough of Boeings into buildings, not to mention the other smaller craft that have whacked structures. Although with the exception of the aforementioned Boeings and perhaps a very few of the smaller aircraft, coming to a full stop in a building was probably not something the pilot in command really was hoping for in an emergency situation.However, if one had to actually look outside whilst taxying around the tarmac in that good looking shiny aluminum tube, it might more closely simulate the real world. What with the problems of incursions onto active runways, pilots might be able to use this as a training aid, as much as the ability to manipulate the knobs and type their way into flight!And then there's always the slight (grin grin) amount of joy in hearing that your fellow ace of the base went nose to nose with the potty truck on the ramp. After all, everyone knows poop in the prop is a funny thing especially if you are out of debris range!Doc Bryant
