  1. This looks great! I'm very often flying to Jersey if I need a break from life so would be interested in this, there isn't a great deal out there other than stuff covered vaguely by FTX Global which, being global isn't as accurate as it could be.

    Well, if you have one area control centre which covers from the ground and has no upper limit, there are theoretically a lot more aircraft to deal with, what with clearances, taxi, and other general airport operations, whereas the EUR sectors (there are 5 by the way, EURW, EURE, EURM, EURN and EURI), covering only above FL245 can cut out all this ground and lower airspace stuff, meaning they have a lower workload so can have a much larger sector (the different pieces on the map that all say EURM are one sector for EUR). In reality though I have seen them get very busy, EURW especially. This ma

    What exactly do you mean by a thousand of the same? If you are referring to the fact that EURM covers other sectors as well, it's because the EUR sector only covers above FL245, whereas the main control centre covers from the ground up.

    Hi Ardy, What this means is that the control centre only controls the upper airspace (above FL245). For example, the one in your screenshot is eurocontrol maastricht, but the same would show for any of the other eurocontrol sectors. Hope this helps Peter
  5. A very Merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year to all - from Santa arriving back home (Rovaniemi in Finland) in his personal Finnair Airbus 321

  9. Two fellas, Paddy and Shane are walking along the road. Paddy spots a notice, and reads it out to Shane: "Hey look Shane, it says 'Tree fellers wanted'". "Well that's no good" Shane replied, "There's only two of us".
  10. I had this issue when I first installed England to P3D v2.5, and I solved it by installing the latest ORBX libraries. They can be downloaded from ORBX's website. Hope this helps Peter
  11. Congrats, Concorde looks so elegant against the clouds. A very worthy winner!

  14. Shot number 1: DHL 757 departing Copenhagen EKCH
  15. Regarding the 737-300, Qualitywings are developing the 737 Classic series, not sure how close to release, but they do post quarterly status updates on their forums, with the next one at the end of September. Either the Qualitywings 757 or the Captain Sim one should be ok, I have the Qualitywings one, but I believe the Captain Sim one is also of a high quality. Hope this helps Regards Peter
  16. I saw a job advertised for being an electric baker. It's someone who puts the current in buns. Oh dear, couldn't resist.
  17. Alan, you can buy all of the Earth Simulations sceneries from www.flightstore.co.uk and then, instead of using the online registration you simply put in the serial number from the box. Not sure how the actual installation works in FSX now (P3D was fine), but I did have to add the files to the scenery library manually (may just be a P3D thing). If you do have to add the files manually, they are in C:\Earth Simulations Hope this helps Regards Peter
  18. I just read that the Swedish navy have fitted all their boats with barcodes, so when they return they can Scan die navy in. Third appalling joke in this forum, think I really will leave now................
  19. Recently picked up the FSDreamteam LSGG scenery, and chose to fly in (on VATSIM) from London Gatwick. Here are a few screenshots from the trip. Boarding at EGKK "Push and start approved face west" Had some competition for takeoff in the form of a BA/Shuttle A319 to Glasgow, but just snuck in before him. Climbing out over the sea Cruising at FL370 Established ILS rwy 23 at Geneva All parked up and shut down at Stand 43 A very busy evening at Gatwick, with delivery, ground, tower and London online, and then Geneva arrival, tower and apron. Addons:
  20. When I went to get my clothes out today, I found a lion and a witch in the wardrobe. Feeling confused, I said, "what are you doing in there". "NARNIA BUSINESS" they shouted back.
  21. Great shots, and nice to see the close up of the Hercules, which I get flying over my house several times most days, along with C17s and A330 MRTTs.
  22. I only tell bad chemistry jokes, because all the good ones Argon. (Leaves quietly to a chorus of groans)
  23. Indeed Brett, but nobody died and the aircraft could be used again. What more could you want!
  24. Thanks for all the kind comments guys. It was my first flight in the 777, and the approach was......... well, never mind.
