    D-ABYA "Brandenburg"

    Herr Drabek's marvelous take on the Lufthansa 747-8i D-ABYA, "Brandenburg". I'm partial to this one.. This image shows her departing Nairobi, Kenya. On 11/20/1974, D-ABYB, "Hessen", a 747-130, crashed here on departure to Johannesburg. For that reason, there will not be another D-ABYB. Cruising over Lake Victoria. Entebbe, Uganda is seen below. Great work, as usual, Steve! -Scott Brandenburg.

    Yep - when you see "Grumpy Joe" you know it's time to go flying! (He has that "disappointed dad look") Thanks Steve!! -Scott D-ABYA.

    There is no such thing as a good photo of my mug. Just throw Manfred von Richtofen in there and we'll be good.. ๐Ÿ˜‰ -Scott D-ABYA.

    Unglaublich! Great work, Steve. I like the subtle touches, the 'grime' around the cargo door ctrl panel - we can't all wear white gloves like they do in Japan.. ๐Ÿ™‚ Look forward to flying "Me". -Scott D-ABYA.

    Paintkit availability for 747-8s?

    I don't really know why, but I feel compelled to like this one.. ๐Ÿ™‚ Great work as always! (bows to the master) -Scott (ExploreTheNew) Brandenburg.

    So, Alex, you're basically a hardcore felon. You, John, and "Death Row Drabek". Go get 'em, killers.. ๐Ÿ˜‰ -Scott Brandenburg.

    Paintkit availability for 747-8s?

    No worries, Steve - you're forgiven. ๐Ÿ™‚ I never thought it would happen this way, but I've flown on two A350s already, but no 787s. I was in Japan two weeks ago, flying ATL-ICN-NRT-DTW-ATL (A350, 748, A350, 757). The A350 is a really nice ride, especially when the upgrade voucher worked and i was in a DeltaOne suite NRT-DTW. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Great looking paint, there's something nice about the KE livery. My first ride on a 748 was on KE from ICN-NRT, just two weeks ago, HL7463. And two days later, I managed to spot the former "Siegerflieger", LH 748 at Haneda. The titles are off now, so maybe "Traurigerflieger" should be it's name.. -Scott Brandenburg. (ex- ExploreTheNew)

    I just love seeing my "real" name on these things.. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks Steve and John! -Scott (formerly "Explore the New") Brandenburg.

    PMDG have hit it out of the park, again. I'm just concerned about one thing.. D-ABYA has the wrong name. ๐Ÿ˜ž (Steve D. - hint, hint..) -Scott ExploreTheNew. (Brandenburg)

    AA Maddog update.....with GLAM shots!

    Rockwell, sure. If you ever do the Braniff Calder paintjob - then we could call you the Dali of the aircraft painting world.. -Scott Brandenburg.

    More wing work...Showing you what it takes.

    Christie isn't returning my calls. Cindy said she's a bit of a snob. Nope, the DL machines didn't have red stripes. One thing they did have, in the old/original livery, was a difference in how the white paint died out at the nose. (All fleet types had the same 'evolution') Originally, the white below the blue cheatline would extend around and under the nose just forward of the NLG doors. Later, to save 2-3 lb of paint, the white would taper off or die out at the base of the black in the radome/nose. A subtle difference, but very noticeable when they came out of paint after having that reduction - back in the days when the fleet was only painted in ATL. N905DL lost the "Wally Bird" decal (only worn on the left) sometime in the mid 90's. Then there were the olympic stickers, two styles - the originals were worn only on the engines (I have a complete unused sticker for an RB-211), then the later ones were worn on the fuselages. We found that skydrol and oil did funny things to the decals.. Sorry - I don't know how to attach pics. And, IMO, N995DL looked best in the old/original livery.. -Scott Brandenburg.

    DELTASSSSS dogs (23 4K images)

    It truly was a pleasure. A lot of good memories, and a few not-so-good. My first jumpseat ride was on an MD-88, N995DL back in 1993 to Memphis to see a certain student eye doctor who is now president of the Georgia Optometric Association. Then a few days later I was probably pulling toilet tanks and grinding corrosion out of an L-1011. Good and not-so good. :) Look forward to seeing all of your creations - you're the best in the biz. -Scott Brandenburg.

    Of course, what you saw, Steve, were immaculately maintained and cleaned MD-88s that were well-loved and respected by their crews and maintainers alike. HUGE eye-roll.. Look forward to your DL-88s. -Scott Brandenburg.

    Just to lighten the mood at PMDG HQ...

    That should just about support some of the senior f/a's US carriers have.. ;) -Scott Brandenburg.

    Just to lighten the mood at PMDG HQ...

    An airline Captain dies and winds-up in line to see St Peter at the pearly gates. Of course, he's sharply dressed in his full uniform, Rolex on display. He keeps checking his watch and decides to investigate the delay by rushing up to the front of the line. CPT - Sir, what is the reason for this delay, I have a schedule to keep. PTR - I hear you, please return to your spot in line. After waiting another 20-30 minutes, the Captain repeats the process. CPT - Sir, I am an AIRLINE CAPTAIN, and I insist that I go ahead on schedule PTR - Right, return to position and hold. Incensed, the Captain waits in line. Suddenly, an immaculately-dressed Captain walks by, goes straight to St Peter, who lets him right in. The Captain rushes forward and demands an explanation CPT - Why did you let HIM in here, didn't you see that I have seniority? Who does he think he is? PTR - Oh, him? That was God, he just likes to pretend he's an airline captain. And another classic. The aircraft of the future is being designed now, the cockpit will only have two occupants, a pilot and a dog. The pilot will be there to feed the dog, the dog will be there to bite the pilot if he tries to touch anything. -Scott Brandenburg.

    109

    Yeah, Steve, you would be. An aircraft designed by a guy named "Tank" does sound tougher than one designed by "Willy". :) (Kurt Tank / Willy Messerschmitt) -Scott Brandenburg.

    109

    Fantastic stuff! What would Erich Hartmann (350+ confirmed kills in the Bf-109) have done with that GPS?? :) Where did you find the airplane? -Scott Brandenburg.

    Approach into KDFW

    Oh, I'm back in, baby. :) Just upgraded equipment - new Digital Storm rig that took "maxed-out" frame rates in P3Dv4 from upper teens to over 120-140 in some areas.. I normally shy away from GA stuff, but your recent shots have me thinking. I still like playing with the big iron, but it's fun buzzing around in smaller stuff too. I even joined my "Virtual Alma Mater", and am having great fun flying routes. Need to get together somehow and catch-up. A lot has happened since we simmed together - these new color monitors are amazing.. :) -Scott Brandenburg.

    Approach into KDFW

    Fantastic stuff, Steve! I'm reminded of Jack Nicholson's line from "Batman": "WHERE DOES HE GET THESE WONDERFUL TOYS". :) I've found all the other stuff, but what are you using for traffic? And to your other post, have a look at waypoints around KATL.. :) -Scott Brandenburg.
