I envy you for having a computer that runs XP11.

I have a fairly ancient PC, John and it has no problems running XP11 whatsoever :)

Nice shots, Jack. I am waiting for Florida for P3D. I just moved from Naples to NJ after living in SW FL for 30 years and traveled extensively for work there, so I am looking forward to see how it looks. By the way, what controller are you using for the throttles for the 727? Something with 3 levers? 

Thanks

Howard

Thanks John.  It might run on your PC.  If I had the money I’d buy you a new one.

Thanks Howard!  I have a VirtualFly TQ6 quad and use XP’s settings to set up three throttles, flaps, and speed brakes.

A wonderful start to your flight Jack.

The scenery in Florida that I have seen so far, although flat, is incredible.

Next you will have to fly from North Washington to the southern part of North California, unless you wait for the Southern California release! 

Our XP world is getting bigger.

Thanks Martyn, bigger and better by far.

Beautiful shots Jack! :)  My days with XP are over, I went to run P3D and all my scenery was gone, so as of right now I removed XP and I'm in the middle of installing all my P3D scenery. :huh:

Thanks Adam but huh?  What happened? Don’t you use backup software?  Sorry to read this.

Don't know what happened Jack, it was a shock to me. With my new computer TE runs great on P3D, so I'll wait until Florida until is available. Besides I miss all my planes and programs. :D

I know you have a soft spot for the three holer and glad to see you jumping in the deep end XP wise.  Though I lived in Florida for three years, it's strictly a winter state.

Thank you to share your "Florida experience" Jack. All parts are great.

I also appreciated the two set with the shuttle. They are fabulous !

Thanks Richard!  But the shuttle was inspired by Ian’s awesome shots.

All great shots, Jack,  but  #3 is an absolute stunner ! 

I love the heat shimmer effect behind the aircraft.

Thanks MZ, that really is an amazing effect.  Wish P3D did this.
