  1. It was a pleasant afternoon short haul to deliver some cargo from Stansted up to Manchester..
  2. When the aircraft is cruising straight and level the PFD indicates a pitch angle of about 3 degrees or so, especially when zipping along at M0.84 at 30000 feet (just under the red zone on the ASI): She'll not get much more nose level I think! So far so good: I believe that between 2 and 5 degrees is a normal pitch attitude for level flight in the real world.. HOWEVER, and this is where I am puzzled... When I check the stab trim indicator it's showing just over 6 degrees ANU (aircraft nose up). This is with the C of G at about 26% (any more and it triggers the c of g limit warning). Despite me altering the amount of payload in the forward and aft sections (FSX fuel & payload menu), the stab trim always seems to return to the same value. It seems quite high given that I'm deliberately setting up an aft c of g condition. If I had a forward c of g position I could understand the stabiliser having to adopt such an angle to keep me in the air, if I'm understanding real world conditions correctly? I'm sure I've seen real world videos on youtube where the stab trim number is much lower at a similar c of g position... Any experienced PMDG users (close to as real as it gets) or indeed real MD-11 pilots (actually as real as it gets!) care to join in? Thanks.
  3. I just liked the shot, no other reason really..
  4. It's been quite a white since I last flew any big iron, least of all anything fully loaded with about 90 tons of cargo. Let's just say that the approach into Portland, Oregon was not pretty, might have scared some of the local populace and no doubt made the tower curse a blue streak.. (I was distracted learning the idiosyncrasies of the Sky Sim MD-11 autopilot and wondering why it didn't intercept the localiser..) Anyhow at least by the time the mains made..... "firm" ....contact with the tarmac I had her pretty much squared away and pointing to where she needed to be. She might even have been on the centreline! I think the oleos were fully compressed.. EDIT: She didn't bounce! The oleos just uncompressed a little!
  5. ...with Mt. Adams in the background I think..
