    Your "Seneca" is an engine short.

    Good hint, Mr. Malone.

    I've never flown a piper seneca (II), so I wouldn't have realized that.

    You obviously use fsx, but I still don't. So, if you know a good fs9 Baron 58 payware, you may let me know.
    I especially don't like the fs9 default Baron, because only one door opens (!), and some people say, you should better forget about the flight dynamics of MS a/c...
    LH also has a intercontinental history, the Hamburg - Düsseldorf - Shannon - NYC route, open since June 1st, 1955.
    A/C type: Lockheed Super Constellation.
    The operator on the DUS - NYC route, on the DUS - BKK route, and on the shiny new DUS - LAS nonstop route? EW, one of the dearest LH daughters .

    Everything these guys do is awesome:

    They just came out with a Baron for FSX but I don't think they have it for FS9. Although if you look they have quite a few great airplanes for FS9 still available

    Wow those screenshot are amazing. ORBX seem to be one of the best in the business when it comes to Flight Simulator scenery, every scenery package they sell is truly impressive.

    orbx is one of the best. But you better trust in future cpu development if you wanna use it with heavy metal, imho. Or what cpu/video card combinations do you use for orbx?

    Oh. I was able to say that orbx is one of the best yet 2 years before? Who am I, an aviation enthusiast since 1985?

    Sometimes, details get lost in the internet, and only webmasters are able to restore this information. This doesn't affect jp, but a german hp, where I became a member almost 3 years after my first day at jp.

    Where am I in terms of fsx. Well, this is the Best, it is orbx territory, but, it's a shame, I don't own one orbx product until today. But this is also an advantage, the wishlist for my birthdays 36-40 is open.
    One of the best liveries that I've ever seen. So it's not a miracule, where am I?


    PS: Do you know, where is my avatar, our D-ABVD? When I was online at jp the last time, it seemed that LH-B744 D-ABVD should enjoy what we in German call "Ruhestand".But who wants to be sent to "Ruhestand" with clearly less than 25 years?! I am not a friend of that policy!
    I have found a flight with D-ABVD, that is younger than 7 days... I love this a/c.
