    If you can convince the passengers
    My dear threadstarter, that's where I stopped reading more. I am a passenger. And nobody convinced me during the last 41 years, and nobody will for the next 410 years.

    Kent, you really seem like a jetphotos newbie, with only 8 forum entries in almost 4 years. So let me tell you what happened here during the last 15 years.

    We discussed cases like AF #447. Don't tell me that weren't connected to too much computers on board a (longhaul) jet. 228 souls died, zero survivors. And why. The F/O and PF tried to pull out his stick out of that Airbus A330, at FL350 (!)
    And why did he try something insane/stupid like that. Not enough training on the longhaul, not enough training in an Airbus A330-200 (!), not enough training on A332 with MTOW, not enough training... not enough training!!!

    And why not enough training. Because back then everybody thought that an Airbus A330-200 is able to fly when all the two pilots in cockpit are sleeping!

    Epic fail, the biggest epic fail in aviation since I am a jetphotos forum member! But Thank You for your opinion, Kent.

    PS: 2000 $ or more, Gabe, we do talk about US-$, don't we, for a computer that runs fsXI, or as you call it msfs 2020? I should publish a secret now. I have never spent 2000 US-$ for a computer. That includes the machine which I use today to operate Randazzos LH-B744 QOTSI fsx semi pro simulator. ...

    $2k+ .., do you know that an economy seat on board a LH-B744 between Germany and Vancouver nonstop return flight was only 1000 Euros?! And that was during the Olympic Winter games in Vancouver 2010, when ALL Germans tried to reach Canada, and many thought, 1000 Euros is a little bit too much. That included me.
    Gabe, am I your travel agency and your computer advisor? I'd love to.
    Probably we should talk..

      LH, can you pick a computer for me that would run MSFS 2020 with a reasonable graphic quality and a reasonable frame rate (and I am not super demanding about frame rates) for U$S 1000 or less?

        ...which has surprisingly good 3D graphics!
        Be alert! America needs more lerts.
