I am looking for a Boeing, preferably a 737 for P3Dv4, it must be updated for v4. I think the PMDG one is probably a little to much for me, not cost just to many systems but I may be wrong... I think there are a few - Captain Sim, Milviz, maybe iFly 747......my only experiance with Boeings apart from QW757 is a 737 from IXEG in XP11....so I probably need one with a good tutorial.... no rush so if you know one is due for update soon then I can wait. with v4 like XP11 I am only installing stuff I will use, I am waiting for the Aerosoft updates to the 320 which I believe will require a paid upgrade but I may have misunderstood that.... I suppose if the new CRJ might be an option... Budget isn't anissue but it needs to be one that helps me learn.... Any thought welcome........ thaks Wayne
Some of you may know I have been away on holiday in Florida visiting our co-admin and my close friend, John Allard. I flew back on the red-eye last night and have some pictures you may like, please bear with me I didn't get a wink of sleep on the flight! We were fortunate enough to fly in the Premier Club cabin, all the extras like fast check in, security fast track, priority boarding and de-boarding, private lounges etc. are well worth the extra. My ticket stub. On our way to the private lounge, it's probably about 86 degrees plus outside, one of the cooler days. We saw this Antonov AN 124 on our way in to the airport, John and I had seen this aircraft earlier in the week. The only way to get close was to go to the smokers area, the trouble was there was double netting floor to ceiling, I guess to stop the odd stray fag butt from getting flicked onto the apron. As you can see, he is off loading helos... So here we are on board and guess what, the cockpit door is open. Always one to seize an opportunity I get permission from the captain to visit once they had finished their initial checks. The cockpit is truly awesome! The Captain, (I forget his name now) was so interesting, he gave me a quick once over the avionics and seeing I had my Mutley's Hangar crew shirt on we talked about flight simulation for a while. Of course, I have hundreds of questions in my mind now to ask him that I forgot to then! A quick look to the right and I am back to my seat. Push back shows a cute Airbus.. A340? (Not my strong point) Hmm, that DHL cargo will never fit in that hangar! We're off, not climbing too fast at first One of dozens of smaller fields around, we are on our way out over Port Canaveral where we stayed a week. They love to show off the lighting, all colours of the rainbow are available, fortunately the lighting was far more subtle during the flight. Saying goodnight to Florida. (The dimming windows are huge btw) And welcoming this mornings sunrise.. This picture really doesn't do it justice, there were many cloud layers and the light was incredible. FL180 over the Isle of Wight, I have drawn a square around Mutley Field (EGHI Southampton) I am pretty sure this is Dunsfold? Virtually no hold, it was straight in to RWY 08 Another Dreamliner (How common!) Just the taxi to go, welcome back to Blighty!

UK holiday carrier Monarch Airlines has emerged as the latest customer to cancel its Boeing 787 order, confirming it was the carrier behind last week's axing of six aircraft from the twinjet's backlog. The company said it has "reassessed its decision" to purchase the aircraft, following plans disclosed in June to concentrate on reinforcing its scheduled short-haul operations. But it added that the cancellation "does not affect" the plan by its maintenance arm, Monarch Aircraft Engineering, to support the 787. "Further consideration will be given to developing and strengthening long-haul options in the future." Monarch, which revealed its plan to acquire the Rolls-Royce Trent-powered 787s in 2006, had originally intended to take delivery from 2010. But it recently said that delays to the programme had pushed their introduction back to around 2014. Its order cancellation brings the number of 787s in the firm backlog down to 821.
