Looks like this will be a good contest this month, I'm looking forward to seeing what all the other Guys spend most of their FS time flying.

After a lot of picking around of my older (and some newer) screen shots, I have picked the three below as my favourites :smile:

My All Time Favourite Aircraft, The Dornier Do-27 (think this is my favourite shot of all time as well )

My Favourite Plane this week is the A2A P47 Thunderbolt (this plane could soon jump to my no1 spot though?, if I can ever get the engine to start up again! that is? LOL :biggrin: )

Another plane that I'm enjoying ATM is the Razbam A7 Corsair, so I have placed it in third spot for this contest.

Well, I do not have any fancy scenery(just default on a 7 year old laptop, sliders set low) to make these screenshots purrty but these are a few of my favorites,

de Havilland DH60 Gipsy Moth (for those wind in your face adventures)

screen1dehavillanddh60g.jpg

Cessna C172 Skyhawk (beefed up the engine for a bit more speed and don't mind if I scratch it)

LOCKHEED L-188 (for those long hauls, love the sound of piston engines)

Brett, If your L188 Electra sounds like a piston engined aircraft you need to change the sound files. The electra was very definately a Turboprop and had a very distinctive sound. Look for one of the new mike stone L188s or the newer P3C Orions to give you the correct sound platform.

You are so correct , thanks for the correction. I was thinking of jets at the time and spoke/wrote out of turn. I should of added the old DC3 instead. Would still take the Turboprop over the jets although the sound sure can be penetrating to the eardrums with a headset on. On some AC's I even need to adjust the sound slider a bit. So I do not make any enemies here, I would also like to add that I do enjoy the big jets but we did only get three picks.

Oh.. that's a hard one. There's so many to choose from...

But my first entry will be of the plane I think I have spent the most hours on in FSX hauling cargo in northern France..

The Cessna 208

Here's my 3 pics. :biggrin:

These are some of my Favourite a/c that always puts a Smile on my face.

Spitfire Mk.V Heading back to base with the canopy open, pilot catching the last of the days sun rays.

Vulcan XH558 She was built in 1960 and was the first of the B2's delivered to the RAF.Seen here opening up the throttles and just waiting for the gear to retract before pulling back on the stick and then doing her party piece the famous high angle almost knife edge power turn. Awesome sound.

A BO-AC Connie coming home, landing at London Airport early 60's I have always loved this a/c for her good looks.

Ok. Second shot from me this month... now, I'm hoping that a chopp... no, sorry, rotorcraft will qualify as an aircraft

The Bell UH-1 AKA Bell 205 AKA Huey has always been one of my favorite helos.. maybe I just saw "Full metall jacket" and "The platoon" too many times when I was younger ;)

Great theme but tough to choose which plane(s) are my favorite. Very much a case of 'Beauty is in the eye of the beholder'.

Anyways below are my personal choices of what I feel are some of the finest modeled aircraft in FSX, shame I can only list 3 as there are so many wonderful visual models out there.

First up is the Queen of India: (a minor edited shot with bit of blur at the bottom of the shot to imitate motion)

707, licence to thrill (again minor edited):

fsx2011-09-1517-31-14-36.jpg

Cometh the Jet Age (also light edit):

fsx2011-08-1914-29-12-15.jpg

Good luck all.

There are a lot of great shots and planes here already, good luck everyone.

This 727 was my first airliner payware, still scares the wits out of me.

The Tomahawk is a great plane, no hassle.

Out01.jpg

One of Milton Shupe's finest, the AC500 Land's End Cargo, a great plane, (lack of) paint and panel to match.
