Randoms from Peru

Recommended Posts

P3Dv4 - Orbx Global, Vector, Trees, SA L/C, Chase Plane, no weather, PMDG DC-6.

 

First, no crazy stuff.

 

I would like to take this time to give a very public, and heartfelt show of gratitude to a gentleman named Mark who lives near Stanstead in the U.K.  He spends a lot of time at PMDG's site and with Kyle's help bought this plane for me.  It was a total surprise and I was just astounded by it.

 

I have never felt so blessed and honored, and quite frankly humbled.  My wife cried when I read his post, he actually bought this for me as a surprise.  I am deeply grateful to Mark and the people at PMDG. 

 

This is one very fine piece of work by the fellows at PMDG.  It's complicated and definitely study level so I'll have a lot to keep me busy in learning her.  DAL flew this five years before I was born and I wish I had a chance to fly on one.  I don't know if anyone still flys them.  Will have to research.

 

Anyway, I set the plane at an airport in Peru, let the FO do all the work and just took her up for a test flight.  I'm amazed by it.  And by the beauty of this new Land Class.  Orbx did an amazing job here.

I now have all their products and I have to say this is stunning.  This plane harkens back to the old days.  Where you had no avionics, had to fly VOR to VOR and ADF, know the plane intimately in order to keep the engines from getting damaged.  I imagine those guys had a lot of training on these birds.  It sure would be a handful to fly without the AFE but with time and practice I know I can do it.

I hope you get your fire suppression plane, it would be neat.

Those were nice shots.  It was interesting to see what p3dv4 looks like.  I was not impressed.

Thank you Geezer, I'm sorry you feel that way.  Some people have posted much better shots than these as I was just testing and my graphics sliders weren't set to max.

I figure that since it hasn't been out long there's a lot of third party add-ons that will make it look like 3.4.  Rome wasn't built in a day.

Best regards,

Jack

Also, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  It all looked too clean and simple without feeling but let's wait a year and see.

Maybe you can do some beta testing for PDMG , you are extremely qualified Jack . They might have one condition tho : No Inverting the AC . :rolleyes::D:)

 

Cheers

That would be fun John but I wouldn't have the time and besides, I like going inverted.  I mean, if the original 707 pilot could do it in real life why not me?  But I don't have any intentions of making this plane go inverted, but you never know because you how I am!  :D

Great news Jack, if anyone deserves this it is you.

Great set of shots too, now all you have to do is get somebody to do a commemorative livery for you which should have a bunch of sour grapes on it somewhere.555:lol::lol::lol:

I will look forwards to some of your adventures in your plane and maybe a cartoon or two!

I'm loving the screenshots, although I'm now thinking I might have to think about also grabbing openLC SA myself - coupled with v4 it really does provide a stunning backdrop to your screenshots.

 

I'm really glad you're getting enjoyment out of the plane :)

I'm very happy for you, buddy, enjoy flying her. You have mastered the Queen of the skies, eventually you'll also master the DC 6 :-)

Thank you Martyn my friend.  Sour grapes.  Gee, I wonder why you say that?  I like my grapes dark red for my Italian merlot.

Yes, a comic, need to work on one.  I miss working with Fred and Sam and the gang,

Thank you Mark and thank you!  Yes, it's amazing, I can't believe how well Orbx did with it.  11 million kilometers is a lot of land mass to explore for the price.

Thank you Karoly, glad you liked them.  More to follow today as I make a regular flight, still trying to think of a city pair.

WOW! Terrific, Jack. I'm very tempted by this plane.

Thanks Fulvio, I would highly recommend it.  It's another study level plane, very nicely done.

Thanks Bernd, I'm very happy too.  It was such a pleasant surprise and I'm most grateful.  I hope to master the DC-6 but it has so many dials, knobs, and switches", I used to hear this from passengers all the time.

Thank PZ!  What a beauty!  And thanks for that info, it's a testimony to Douglas that they are still flying.  I love it.
