            hah, no problemo, the rule is "odd people out east" or at least thats what I use basically, when flying east, you take an odd level, flying west you take an even one.

            its for separation purposes, but we get to call the newfies odd, which is a bonus

              2 questions:

              How do you get such detailed airports?

              Why were the wings not flexing?

                The airports are payware and i have all the settings maxed out

                The wings are flexing as you can see one take off and landing shots

                      Good thing I didn't try to open this thread at work, it probably would have killed not just my browser, but probably the whole computer as well .

                      Nice screenshot series of course, and dare I say, if you are indeed in Poland right now, it should not be hard for me to get myself your comp with all those awesome "paid-for" add-ons .
