Fraser, the 441 is looking great. I happen to have access to a 425 conquest- I know it's not quite a 441, but if you need any detailed pictures of anything, feel free to let me know.

And no, access does not mean I fly it... :(

I thought I might revive this topic and post a quick preview of a panel I'm making for the BSMP Metro:

Looking good Fraser!

Currently working on compiling old timetables into a single Excel based system very similar to the SimAirline.net Timetable.
Painstaking and ridiculously tedious but thankfully, only doing interesting flights like the AA MD-11s, etc.
I may make this available for download when complete, if there's enough interest.

I'm sure there would be interest and good on you for taking the time to do so, I wouldn't think many people would want to.

Oh, trust me, it's absolutely painful but the end result is very neat.
I finished all 87 records (x8 columns, so 696 entries) of the American DC-10s and then hit auto-sort without selecting the arrival/departure times first and Excel scrambled the data without being able to un-do. Had to start over. UGH!!
Currently on the timetable:
AC 744s
AF 741/742/743s
AA D10/M11
NW D10/M82/741/742/744
Waiting for my recently purchased timetables to arrive so I can add a bunch more next week.

Haha, right, thanks Josh!

Added: NW RJ-85 and the DC9-10s.
As well as distinct 747-100 and 747-200 routes, thanks to some new data.

This is an extremely painful and tedious process but coming along nicely. (Excel is 50% of the headache, HATE it)

Current list:

Air Canada
747-400M

Air France
747-100/200/300

American
DC-10-10
MD-11

Northwest
Avro RJ-85
727-200
747-100/200/400
DC-9-10/30/40/50
DC-10-30/40
MD-82
(A320/757 mostly the same routes available today, so not worth adding)

Waiting on a few more timetables so I can add the DL 762s/M11s, CO (domestic) 767/777 (EWR-LAX-EWR was a 777) and M80s, more AA D10s/M11s and YX DC9/M80/717s.
I am also considering putting together a full Northwest timetable from either summer 1997 or 1998.
The amount of domestic widebodies (even 747s) is awesome and a hell of a lot more fun than today's 737-800s.

If you organize it properly, you could compile your own AI flightplans :wink:

Thanks.

AI? I suppose I could... hmmm.
It is definitely a lot of work but very cool to see the results come together. And I'm learning a lot about the networks, I can probably name the aircraft on any NW 1993 route right now. That's sad.

Mainly working in Excel 2008 for Mac but this project has seen Access 2000, Access 2003, Excel 2003 and Excel 2007.

Today's project is to do Midwest Airlines, going to see if I can extract the data out of their PDF timetable instead of having to re-type it all first. That'd be great.

I agree. I miss flying 747 on shorter routes. :(

Current version is available on my server and will be updated if I have time available, I did get a few more timetables in and may add some to it eventually.
A few things about this timetable.

Because it combines schedules from all seasons, the arrival times cannot be guaranteed due to time zone changes over the years/seasons and day light savings time but they will be accurate to the minute, it just may be -/+ an hour (typical in FS anyway) depending on the season, etc.
Departure times do not have the same problem and will be correct as listed in the timetables I have.

Days of operation are not listed, I decided when making this timetable to create a reasonable representation of the schedule period, selectively choosing from the flights listed and typically including weekend only/non-daily flights unless I have a very good reason not to do so, these are not shown differently and will be listed as regular flights.

*DISCLAIMER* These are NOT fileable with SimAirline.net, as a Management Team Member, I would of course prefer to see you fly flights with us and file PIREPs for them. :winking: Having said that, this timetable is not supported by, endorsed by or in any way associated with SimAirline.net, I just happen to be the one who built it.

Included airlines/aircraft:

Air Canada
747-400M

Air France
747-100/200/300

American
DC-10-10
MD-11

Delta Air Lines
767-200/400ER
777-200ER
MD-11

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines
747-200SUD(M) (Operated on AMS-DTW-AMS in 1993, this is the only one I have listed right now, stumbled on by mistake in the NW schedule)

Midwest Express Airlines
DC-9-10/30
MD-81/82/88

Midwest Airlines
717-200
MD-81/82/88

Northwest
Avro RJ-85
727-200
747-100/200/400
DC-9-10/30/40/50
DC-10-30/40
MD-82

If you have any questions or find a mistake, please post below and I'll take a look. Thanks! Have fun and enjoy flying the historic airways. I sure do!
