    Lavochkin LA-9 of the PLAAF on an afternoon sortie. Thanks for viewing.
  3. Max 9

    Following on from the 737 Max 8, the Max 9 is a slightly stretched version. Again from the hand of TDS but this one has a decent VC. Thanks to Jury for the link to this one. The flight was from Boeing Field , Seattle to Oakland (which seemed to be suffering from an exceptionally high tide when I arrived!) max rate climb out! Boy, has this bird got some power! Very comfortable flight deck! The Max 9 is actually bigger than the B707 for which the 737 was designed originally as a feederliner! Well I wasn't expecting that! Going paddling! Thanks for viewing

  5. Taking it to the Max

    I have a few payware ones as well, but I don't fly airliners that often so don't buy that many. Some of the freeware ones are as good as, and in some cases better than, payware models. I guess it depends on how you are using the sim. For me it's just a bit of fun that I don't take too seriously.

    Happy Birthday Phil.
  7. Taking it to the Max

    Thanks for the link. I now have this one downloaded as well .
  8. Taking it to the Max

    I disagree, many of the aircraft in my sim only have 2d panels yet I never have any problems operating them and running flight plans where needed. As far as I'm concerned a functional VC is nice to have but not essential. If it's an unusual aircraft and everything else checks out then I'm quite happy to run a 2d panel. I've been running Flight sims since FS98 so quite used to basic setups. However each to his own and if some find a VC essential then so be it.

  11. Runway & cliff 'excursion' in Turkey

    There's that old much banded word again, "Nosedive" as used by reporters everywhere when they know nothing about aviation! It's a "Dive" end of! in this case it wasn't even that, the aircraft went off the runway and slid down a hill, It didn't dive anywhere, LOL. Someone will have questions to answer clearly, thankfully no-one was hurt but the aircraft recovery will be interesting, if indeed they bother. It may well be scrapped on site looking at the state of it.
  12. Aussie Flew!

    Good luck with the builds Steph. I look forward to seeing your photos.
