I decided I had to get on the Finnair MD-11 service to Kennedy before it was discontinued just days after this trip, I'm glad I took the ride as it was great. I've included some cockpit shots to show you what it's like flying in typical JFK fog in the glorious MD-11. Enjoy,

Nick,

Thanks for the amazing screenshots once again!

I especially thank you for honoring the last passenger MD-11 service to leave JFK. It will be missed by us New Yorkers.

EDIT: The first one is the most realistic in my opinion.

Hey bud,

What you just did is called a bump and a lot of people around here get annoyed when people bump topics that are around two months old like this unless you have something new or interesting to add to it.

Just try not to do it again. :)

This doesn't break a rule and it's only his first time. Cut him some slack.

It was definitely a little harsh but it's alright, everyone has their moments.

Thanks!
