Going historical! AC/DL/FX/NW and YX!

Post by Northwestdc9 » 30 Sep 2009, 04:38

As you've probably seen, I've recently taken to flying from historical timetables. They offer an interesting alternative to someone who's already done just about everything there is to do. So here's the Aug/Sep set!


Air Canada 767-200 pushing back in Fort Lauderdale for the trip up the coast to Montreal. (Early 2000s)

Delta 777-200LR landing in Atlanta next to the Delta Jets sign, which is apparently being removed. (Current day)

Delta MD-88 getting ready to head out of Fort Lauderdale for New York La Guardia. (Current day)

Delta MD-88 blasting out of Florida!

FedEx DC-10-10F landing 09L in Fort Lauderdale from Memphis. (Current day)

Northwest A319 departing New York La Guardia. (Current day)

Final approach, 24R, Los Angeles.

Thanks for looking! Next set will have the Qantas A380 for sure.

Some of your most realistic shots yet. My favorites are the DL 772LR @ ATL and the NWA A319 over JFK. Really nicely done Nick.

Wow, Nick!
What JFK scenery is that, payware? How come the aircraft are parked at T4 remote stands and the terminal is empty? Can your simulator simulate them parking remotely and then moving to the terminal prior to departure?
That's one realistic shot of JFK in FS. What frame-rates would you get on a shot like that?

It could very well be that the aircraft arrived in the morning and will depart in the evening, and this shot is early afternoon, right before transatlantic arrivals. Many airlines remote park there for several hours.

Sure, but how can Nick's FS simulate that?
Usually your AI can only go somewhere and park up. So either they never go to the terminal gates, or are always at the terminal.
