  1. Ooooh, did not know that! I'll have a look cheers
  2. Morning All! I had a quick flight with the DO288 before work this morning (Don't usually fly before work but I can't get enough of the Dornier atm). Here she is loaded and awaiting prestart checks at Asau for a short hop to PagoPago. Happy Monday!
  3. Thank you all for your kind words, most appreciated
  4. A quick real-time, real weather flight from Cardiff to Alderney. Departed RNY 012 following the EXMOR SID to 5,000ft then cleared to climb out to 18,000ft towards Berry Head. Arriving to the ROGTO entry point above 2,000ft for visual on RNY 008. Hope you enjoy! Al
  5. Awesome shots! Would love to know what shade and REX settings you are using for this
  6. Thanks for all the responses, some very interesting ideas on this thread! That panel is so damn cool! I'm tempted to build my own and get it prototyped at work.
  7. Hmmm, that is interesting. Don't get me wrong, it's in no way disappointing and all the cockpit sounds etc are really good (not that I have ever flown a hawk to know how realistic there). It just doesn't sound like a jet trainer when the engine is running like the Albatross does. I have the tornado too btw and the sound on that is awesome! I am happy to post more screen shots if people are looking to purchase it especially whilst its still cheap.
  8. I love it, they have done a really good job. There are a couple of bugs but nothing major, the engine sound is a bit generic, and could be more realistic too but everything else is really well done.
  9. Hi all, The latest from Just Flight: Hawk T1/A. I took her for a quick early morning flight along the south coast to see what she could do. Cheers, Al
  10. Hey, Thanks for the info, I'll take a look. I don't mind doing a bit of playing around if it saves me time in the long term Al
  11. Hello All, As with many other simmers, I don't ever seem to be able to find the time to do the flights I really want. Yes long haul flights can be saved and re visited, but I'm a stickler for accuracy and consistency and love using real world weather which changes from day to day. But.... I have changed my approach to this kind of flying which, I now find far more enjoyable. The ferrying of light aircraft. This allows me to fly the distances I would love to but also allows me to fly them in legs whilst still keeping a level of realism. It's also a lot more hands on in some cases, which makes for an exciting couple of hours. The stumbling block which I would love feedback and ideas on is fuel. Ferry pilots will remove seats etc and add additional fuel tanks to improve an aircraft's range, which can't easily be replicated in FSX. I sort of have a way round this: I take assume two pilots (roughly 70-80kg each), I then add a full tank of fuel and note the weight and range that this gives. I then turn on unlimited fuel and fill up all the seats in the aircraft making sure that it is not above the operational weight range. I take this additional weight (as if it were fuel) and then calculate how much extra range that would have given me (roughly, i'm awful at maths). The downside to this is that you end up landing with a heavy aircraft even though you may technically be on reserves. Is there an easier way of doing this that I'm missing, like editing an aircraft fuel capacity though the config files? I'd happily have two configs (standard and long range) and switch between the two. Would love some thoughts and feedback on this, especially if other people have tried it. Cheers, Al
  12. Excellent, Thanks for the info I'll look into it
  13. Awesome shots! Where did you get the 777 model with VC please? Would love to replicate this flight at home
