Woke up to a nice day at OG39 and I just had to take the JS41 for a flight. Destination: KJAC! Assumming no problems, that is... Beautiful morning in Central Oregon The view from the other side. JS41 Parked by the hangar... Plan view, parking area Just finished boarding A spotter outside the ranch emailed me this one! Engine start Ready for takeoff...wait a minute! Starting the evacuation...I guess we get to stay at the ranch for a few weeks!
So...I was out and about on the web looking for a new low-and-slow aircraft the other day (A2A Cub, or something similar). I spent a few hours finding the "perfect fit" ...but just couldnt decide. I felt like I already had other airplanes that could do the same job. Just then, I noticed that I dont really have a quality transport category passenger airplane for FSX! I do own the Level-D 767, the ATR 72-500, and the Super 80, but all those virtual cockpits are painful to look at after experiencing the RealAir Duke, etc... I considered a 737 (there are two very competitive models out there), but that was just too high and too fast for Orbx (IMHO). I found the perfect balance in the PMDG JS41. Fast, somewhat low-flying (Orbx looks phenomenal in the 15000 to 20000 ft range), has a superb flight model, and excellent system modeling. Anyhow...Just took it out for my first flight today from Bowerman to Longview Ranch, and snapped a few shots! Parked at the large GA parking spot... Holding short for landing traffic... Taking off, runway 24 Climbing out. Love the photoreal bay! The view from 14000 ft... Cheers!
