  1. Thats some good memory skills right there. I must have posted the same photos in about 2006? Possibly earlier. Used the same guess the aircraft when i posted that A320 recently too. (although that was a different photo) If i get another go, i promise to post a new photo/aircraft! On an off-forum side note, I havent forgotten to reply to your message by the way, i just havent done it yet
  2. I dont think any amont of googling would have got me that! But i did try... Anyway, sory for the delay....heres another cockpit....not the worlds best quality rendition, this one is from FS2004. I think its quite difficult, but guessable...
  3. English Electric Canberra? To be honest...im trying harder to get the loco
  4. It is indeed! Although two others did say A320, i will hand this over to you, as it is an A320-200, and you infact managed to link to the exact one! Original photo.... http://www.airliners.net/photo/Indian-Airlines/Airbus-A320-231/1057779/&sid=7b0429cae24c107ade318587f376c9ad And i will update my posts to include credit.
  5. I have decided to unveil a little more of the image as it wasnt entirely fair....any more though, and i would probably give it away. (If you are showing the same one as before, refresh the page)
  6. Okay, I have some more clues.... This family of aircraft first flew in February 1987, and there are a total of 4 in the family. This aircraft first flew in France in the 90’s before being taken to its current residence.
  7. Unfortunatley neither are right. Its hard to give any more clues without giving it away.....i might post a shot of some of the bits of the cockpit...that might be worth a go.
  8. Hello all, sorry i havent been back here to post clues sooner....however better late than never....cant believe there hasnt been any guesses though. Anyway, clues. I said that i couldnt find any FS versions of this aircraft. Not strictly true. I cant find any FS versions of this variant. And odds are you have had a go at piloting one of this aircrafts family in FS at some point.
  9. You got It! In FS9 (i assume its the same in FSX), its named as 'KTNT - Dade Collier Training and Transition.' Joe...here be the clues...I was just being sneaky! I bet you thought I was just being big headed! Most were references to TNT....The PMDG link is not so obvious, and you would only know it if you followed the same tutorial that i did when learning to fly the 737NG. But to cut a log story short the 5 flight tutorial is based here. I would give a little more information on that tutorial...but i cant find it on that-website-that-shall-not-be-named any more...probably a victim of the hack. I was probably a little misleading with the phrase 'on a random side note' Anyway...well done Rob. Obviously a Times cryptic crossword fan. Over to you!
  10. I thought I gave pleanty of clues...have another read
  11. It was a bit of luck to be honest, rather than being sure...something about its design made it look STOL, so I searched ‘’STOL, high wing, low engine’’ and after a bit of rummaging/refining found the Do28. Funnily enough, ended up on the Classic Wings website. It’s a neat looking aircraft though, and looks like a good freeware aircraft to fly. On to the next one...A real photo this time, as I haven’t been able to find any FS versions of this aircraft. It’s not my photo, but I will edit in the photo credit once its been guessed-correctly. (This one’s easy, but I don’t want to make it that easy!) Original Photo Kok Chwee Sim. (Airliners.net)
  12. I haven't got masses of supporting evidence on this on, so its a bit of a stab.... Dornier Do28 Skyservant? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dornier_Do_28
  13. So I suppose there would be mixed feeling about this one too... I'm not afraid to admit that i had a Maccy D's* so that i could go and have a nose...and she is rather nice inide. Theres also a full history of this bird in there. I think i am in the 'like' came with the graffiti one though....if its only going to be scrapped otherwise..... * Much as this is hard to believe, Macdonalds is much better in NZ. Partly becuse they have 'McCafe' bolted on, which is no different to Costa or Starbucks. And you can have Bacon and/or avacado with anything.
  14. When I was out in NZ we got visits from a P-3 and a C-130 to Hamilton International (NZHN). Always an impressive sight and sound! The reason they used to visit was that the airfield at their home base (which the name of escapes me right now, it was just north of Auckland) was undergoing a runway re-surface, so they used to let them all out first thing, they would come and buzz us, and then go home later. It wasn’t uncommon for the P-3 to spend time in the circuit too doing touch and go's...which made it interesting for us in the Cessna's and Katana's! I think it was also to do with their IFR training, and using Hamilton's VOR/DME and NDB. It makes sense that they wanted to use an airport that had the relevant navaids, and a large enough runway to land on/touch and go but was not as busy as somewhere like Auckland. It’s also interesting to go somewhere else. 'Beacon Bashing' over your local gets quite boring, and it becomes quite easy to miss the plate differences between your local and another airfield. We also had a visit from a RAAF 757, which went around from MDA, which was very impressive, because the climb rate was something else. The 757's pencil shape made it look like a rocket! Sorry that’s not massively useful
  15. As we haven’t heard anything from Rosario, i will put the next one up. So here it is…hopefully a bit harder…but I doubt it. Just the one picture, but with plenty of clues. Scenery is default FS9, with Ground Environment. Again, the picture is embarrassingly low quality, but hopefully I will sort that out before too long. On a random side note, there is a topic on the forum at the moment about what sim got you hooked, and although it was a sim called ‘Team Apache’ that caused me to have a love for flight simulation, it was learning to fly this aircraft with its detailed systems, checklists, and SOP’s that exploded my interest and caused a career transition to stop messing around in MSFS, and get myself a real ATPL. Now, I’m sitting waiting for a courier to deliver my CPL/IR. I really need to learn to post screenshots without a back-story…

    Vulcan 607

    Evening All, As usual apologies if this has been mentioned and I missed it, but I don’t know if anyone has spotted this on the listings for Sunday night: 20:00 Channel 4: Falklands Most Daring Raid. ''The humorous, heroic story of how a Cold War-era Vulcan flew the then-longest-range bombing mission in history with a Second World War bomb that changed the outcome of the Falklands War'' . If you haven’t read Rowland Whites book on this raid, Vulcan 607 (http://www.waterston...an+607/5587899/) then I would whole heartedly recommend it. I’m part way through his second book in this style, Phoenix Squadron, which is equally compelling. Peace and Love, Fred 'mulletman' Clark
  17. Seconded. The mountain flying one is particuly good, should you fancy flying GA in the alps. Shame FS doesnt simulate things like mountain waves.
  18. I feel a bit rude jumping the topic, becuse really, rosariomanzo (sorry, i don't know your real name ) got this one. However, i *think* can awnser the clues. LFKT Corte, Corsica, Im not an Asterix fan, but i think its Asterix in Corsica, http://www.asterix.c...in-corsica.html, making the leader Napoleon. (according to wikipedia at least) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corsica If i am right, rosario practically got it for me so is welcome to post the next guess. (I have one, but will wait incase you have one to go).
  19. Hello All, I hope this hasn’t been posed/mentioned before, however I was browsing through John’s excellent collection of charts, and noticed there are none for New Zealand. For those that want to fly down there, all the New Zealand plates (and for that matter the full Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP) along with its supplements) is available online here (no login required): http://www.aip.net.nz/ The charts themselves are here: http://www.aip.net.nz/NavWalk.aspx?section=CHARTS I hope this is useful to those wanting to visit middle earth, and is not detrimental to the excellent collection of plates available here! Unfortunately the airways charts are not online, however the Standard Route Document (SRD) is there, and may be useful for NZ flight planning. Peace and Love, Fred 'mulletman' Clark.
  20. Indeed, And there was me beginning to think i had killed to topic.
  21. Pleasure. I have been poking my head in, but never got round to posting! Things got very hectic once I got into the CPL phase of training, and the last two months in Bournemouth doing the IR have been crazy! But still, back on the ground now...and about to make the next step into jets. Excited...me....never. I owe a lot of people on here many thanks, because if it wasn’t for the FS community, I would have never pursued the passion and taken to the skies. Cheers all! It’s good to be back...if a little spooky. I have no idea what I am doing with all these buttons though. I hope you have been keeping well! Sorry for disappearing for as long as I have...the real world took over somewhat, but thanks for remembering me! I'm going to try to make some more regular contributions. Hopefully get something of interest up on the next couple of weeks. (If Joe lets me). Right, on to the proper business. Everything in front of you is a clue. I apologize for the embarrassingly low quality images. I have been away from the Flight Sims and screenshot edits for a long long time, and I’m still playing around with settings/controls etc. Still, these are FS9, with some basic (and I mean basic) scenery. However, everything is there, albeit in an old format. The grass strip you see running alongside the main runway, according to the current plates (the real ones, available freely online), is now paved, and the main has become 36R/18L. That is another runway you see in the background, and the plates say there should be two of them, (again, L and R) Plenty more clues available if needed....but I don’t think they will be.
  22. May I have a guess? I think (and I may be wrong as I haven’t been able to fire up FS to check) that it is Kiev, Boryspil Airport UKBB. http://en.wikipedia....ational_Airport But that is a guess. According to wikipedia it fits with the clues...no US airlines, 2 parallel runways, and Kiev is home to Antonov, which are manufacturerd in Kharkiv (Ukraine), Novosibirsk (Russia), and Tashkent (Uzbekistan). (By the way, please excuse my messy profile/signature...havent quite got it all sorted yet.)
  23. Why thankyou chaps... I might just post some shots later. Who knows. :biggrin: Also, did any one notice that the most ever users online (38) was 2 years ago today?
  24. damn...now that would be really good with some VFR scenery and a second moniter... nice find!
