  1. 744 Hard landing. Qustions.

    I have only one more thing to add; f=ma
  2. 744 Hard landing. Qustions.

    1. Oh HELL yes! 2. Depending on a number of environmental conditions, it's quite possible to pop a few tires... 4. Lol! Yeah, you're cool - especially if your 'bounce' wasn't in the US. ;)
  3. PMDG FSExpo Announcement

    It's the Wood Pigeon! Has to be!
  4. ORBX Installation target?

    Excellent - thanks, Emile!
  5. Greetings All, Can ORBX scenery packages be installed on an HDD (in my case SSD) other than in the FSX folder? And/or, can just the Scenery folder(s) be moved to an SSD drive (a drive different than the FSX installation) without having to reinstall everything? Thanks in advance!
  6. Anyone want to try your PMDG skills in 777 simulator

    Did 30 minutes in a 747-200B there in 1997. I remember every minute of the experience to this day.
  7. A non standard request

  8. PMDG moving to own forum platform

    Yes - anonymity is overrated, and leads a certain subset of folks to lash out at anything and everything: from benign newbie questions on one end, to honest contrary opinions on the other. Signing your real name is one of the primary ways to prevent trolls and other malcontents. I.e., if you really do stand behind what you have written - sign your real name. IMHO Thank you.
  9. Back to the AILERON LOCKOUT advisory msg, the underlying really neat detail is the correct modeling of the 744 on the ground in the cold - it was -34C on the ramp at PAFA yesterday afternoon and, even with all engines up and running from a cold start, the engine generators will not kick-in until you run the engines up a little. A few minutes at idle won't do it, gotta run 'em up a little. If you don't, you might (as I did) get the flaps in transition and turn off the APU, only to have a battery powered airplane with 4 engines running(!) Then, after getting power back, since flaps were in transition during the admittedly bone-headed move of cutting the APU before engine gen kicks-in, you'll get the AILERON LOCKOUT. This series of events is exactly what would happen on the real bird. Well done, PMDG!
  10. AILERON LOCKOUT Advisory Message after I screwed up a cold-weather start in Fairbanks, AK this afternoon. Now THAT is detail!!
  11. 747-8 price $ 325,000,000.00

    AND, that's List Price. I guarantee Boeing would let one go for $280M!
  12. Future Route Possibilities

    Yep, the 777 is a true workhorse and an amazing, modern, engineering marvel. But, wait until you see the range/weights/economy of the 787-9. I'm talking wow - it takes it to the next level.
  13. Future Route Possibilities

    Yes - with prevailing winds, prob 355 out of 365 days a year, you will need a fuel stop. But, that does mean that on 10-ish days out of the year, real-world winds may make this city-pair possible. ;)
  14. FSX 'Minimizes' and Pauses at Random times

    Awesome! Thanks, Andy. Pat
