  • The taste of history...

    I was just relaxing one night, surfing the net when I suddenly ended up on Posky's website. And a nice surprise. The newly released classic 747s v4 ! Not waiting for long I downloaded the plane (747-100AA) and decided to take it for a ride in FS. being on vacation I didnt have enough time for a whole flight but I took some shots of Newark departure and LHR arrival. Enjoy my laptop widescreens!

    Aircraft: Boeing 747-100
    Airline: American Airlines
    Registration: N9664
    Flight No: AA741
    Callsign: American 741 Heavy
    Origin: Newark Intl. Airport; Newark; USA (KEWR)
    Destination: Heathrow Intl. Airport; London; UK (EGLL)

      Thanks a lot for a kind comment Everything looks great in B&W
      Btw. in case anybode is into classic 747s the payware Ready for Pushback 747 just got freeware and is now available for download from avsim ( I'm downloading it right now to compare these two.

        That went freeware? Cool. Any shot its FSX friendly?

          Freeware yeah. Well I got it , gave it 5 minutes and uninstalled it. Pieca crap imo. But Im no classic 747 fan so maybe thats why. I'm pretty sure theres a FSX patch.

            Cool shots, did AA really fly that route or did you just pick it randomly?

              There's something about this view. Oh yeah... A true king of the skies ! I love the 747 dimensions. Looks really massive when looking at this particular screenshot.

              Definitely 2 thumbs up, Patryk ..

                Thanks John Yes the 747 has great dimensions and I love how photogenic she is !! She looks great from pretty much any angle.
                Mike, I picked the route randomly. I was limited to the airports I had installed on my laptop

                Thanks guys !
