  1. Thanks, Paul. It absolutely is Hahaha, it looks really cool. Thanks Wayne
  2. No, it is not. But the plane is the Orbx Fokker. Should this be not sufficient, please remove this post of mine.
  3. Iconic plane and very impressive cliffs, Paul !
  4. That looks quite nice, Paul !
  5. AirPower is the largest air show in Europe and happens every three years at the military airfield Hinterstoisser near Zeltweg, Austria. This year the show was scheduled for the first weekend of September, admission is free. It attracted some 280,000 visitors. I thought to take one of my vintage planes, the venerable Fokker VIIa in order to make a decent entry. Now, that’s quite a crowd And this is, how the real thing looked this year
  6. An iconic bird in a very special location, Paul. I love the Goodwood Festival of Speed
  7. Wow, Paul, what a collection. Awesome!!
  8. Great shots of a nice airfield, Paul. I also like your Buecker a lot
  9. Thank you very much, Paul Many thanks Calum I'm happy you like them, Landon Thanks a lot, Gumby. Only when I googled whether a Jumbo can land in Hobart, did I get to know about those four successful landings Luckily it will survive in our virtual world for a few more years Thank you, Adam Many thanks, John, no 4K here. Like you I can't wait to fly these old birds once they are introduced Thank you very much for your kind comment, Gerold Many thanks, John
  10. When you think of Hobart and its 2750 m runway, a 747 does not come as a logical plane to land there into your mind. But over the last thirty years, a Qantas 747 landed there four times. The first one was a B 747-200 (VH-EBN), which landed on 22nd September 1989. The second time was a B 747SP (VH-EAA), which landed on 22nd February 1990. The third time it was a B 747-400 on 20th September 1990 and the last one another 747-400 on 10th October 2019. Considering this history, I will use Hobart as a special place for one of the last identical four and the first 747 ever built. I got the idea from a nice thread on another site that deals with our simulator. On Wednesday, Oct. 5 2022, Atlas Air took delivery of a 747-8 Freighter (N861GT). This unit is the second of four new 747-8 Freighters ordered by Atlas Air in 2021, which are also the last 747s ever to be produced by Boeing, putting an end to the "Queen of the Skies”. The first Jumbo, the iconic prototype RA001, a 747-121, christened “City of Everett”, made its maiden flight on February 9, 1969. One of its last flights will now be the one into Hobart. But first we have to get to the airport Yummi (I mean the food!!) I love the details in the interior Here we go: 747-8F with rego N861GT Unfortunately, also cargo planes have to follow a strict schedule. N861GT had to leave before the City of Everett arrived That happened around one hour later A truly iconic piece of aviation history What a beauty (this time I mean the bird…äähm…I mean…I mean the plane of course) Btw, the 747-100 is the FS9 Posky model that I converted to MSFS (with all the associated limitations of course. But she flies quite nicely.)
  11. Many thanks buddy Thanks a lot, Wayne Thank you for your kind comment, Gerold, much appreciated! I had this one on my bucket list for a long time The wreck is default Many thanks, Adam
  12. These are real beauties, Paul !!
