  1. Well, at least Lufthansa will only start phasing out their -400's from around 2020. Still plenty of time for some real world routes.
  2. That UAL 747 is waaay too clean to be a true representation of the real equivalent.
  3. Great shots! Can't wait to see the first video footage.
  4. Dang, the more I look at it the more I want it.
  5. Huh, after all these years I still didn't know that! Thanks for the heads up.
  6. Now that the links are working again, did anyone notice the PMDG softdrink in the fifth image? I hope it doesn't taste like DC-3 oil...
  7. Well, randomeness isn't really the way to go but I really like the idea. A2A, for example, have the option for persistent aircraft states, which means that the aircraft, including all switches, fuid levels, possible failures etc. is in the same state as you left it the flight before and closed the sim. If you forget to do the proper shutdown procedure, and checklist, for instance, it'll still be in the same state that you left it in. Having that in mind maybe PMDG could realize such a system...unless simply saving the panel state before you leave the aircraft does the trick...but who has time for that anyway... :rolleyes:
  8. I have yet to see a photobucket link work...
  9. Based on the flightdeck and the blue carpet, I think it was an older Delta 777.
  10. Well, I'm glad all things are well! Looking forward to the day the 747 enters beta.
  11. Just get a van, write "free DC3 sparkplugs" on it and there you go... :ph34r:
  12. Platform: FSX/P3D Developer: Aerosoft Aircraft: A330 Comment: Would be cool to have it upon release of the A330.
  13. 737 - still very oldschool and you can land that thing anywhere. The 777 is a hub to hub carrier.
  14. True, but as of now there just is no twin on the market that has the same seating capacity as the double-decker A380. Just look at Emirates replacing all their 777 services to major Hubs with A380's. Range and ETOPS - spicific restrictions aren't really a factor these days...even 4-engine aircraft have to be ETOPS certified for all sorts of reasons.
  15. If I recall correctly United has already ordered around ten 777-300ER's - an aircraft that can carry as many passengers as a 747-400, with two less engines and the same range/cruising speed. Airplanes with 4 engines haven'd died off yet, but they are only profitable on certain, high-frequency routes and cover a rather small niche in commercial air travel. Just look at British Airways with the A380 and rather old 747-400 fleet or Lufthansa that operates a quite large A380 and mixed 747-400/747-8 fleet (with the 747-400's and A340-600's to be replaced by the 777-9 from around 2020). And who knows if Airbus decides to stretch and re-engine their A380 - the damand is still there and turbofan engines are getting more efficient every year.

  17. Will the GPS be the stock FSX/X-Plane/P3D/[iNSERT RANDOM FUTURE SIM] one or will it be updatable and RNAV capable? Would be quite interesting to have something more advanced as an option. Not that I'd use it... :ph34r: And yes, I can only Imagine flying the LOC/DME into INN with the 6! I hope Austria West HD comes out soon...
  18. What a great read! I seriously need this thing in FSX - the 777 and upcoming 747 are/will be nice but after all they are flown like any other modern airliner. Just imagine flying and navigating the DC-6 through the swiss alps (with the GPS turned off of course. :wink:
  19. I still remember the first time I saw the 777 overhead after having flown the 737 and TU-134 for a long time - like "Uhm, is this it?"
  20. And by the way, this is what came first to my mind when I read the title.
  21. Outstanding attention to detail! Can't wait to see the first livery previews and compare them with my planespotting pictures from the airport. :wink:
