    Hm. The Flight Simulator section of this forum most of the time is something like my benchmark. If I am the last person who has written something here in this section then everything is ok. Nobody has thrown me out of this platform.

    This saturday night is different. Somebody who if we'd only take the shere number of his posts is qualified to be a good moderator goes into the cellar and he likes to meet the people down there..?

    Well, I'll take that as a compliment. Back on topic. Msfs for xbox. Ja, that seems to be a logic idea. Why not very much earlier. I know that Msfs 9 exists since anno 2004 (2003?), for people who use personal computers (PC).
    LH also has a intercontinental history, the Hamburg - Düsseldorf - Shannon - NYC route, open since June 1st, 1955.
    A/C type: Lockheed Super Constellation.
    The airline code since a few weeks is no longer LH, but the operator stays the same on the DUS - NYC route ...

    Aviation enthusiast since more than 30 years. A whole decade here on this platform.

    As I read in the news, Microsoft would not tell much but they did tell that the new MSFS will also be available for PC.

    And for the first part. I just came across the news by chance and thought I would share it. Nothing to do with wanting to throw you out of this platform or anything like that.

    Go ahead and reply something so you are the last one.

    Oh Gabe, you know that I sometimes expect to be thrown out of this platform. But not by you, at least not as long as you don't become a moderator.

    And not on such a brilliant racing sunday, in good mood, with more than seven hours to go..

    In case of a doubt, I still have one or two properly attended topics which I have opened..

    Btw, do you know how many posts you need to be a good administrator? If it only were the number of posts, then I only know 1 man here on jetphotos who still is better than you.
    Theoretically, we both are old enough. I can say why I'll never apply for 'an office' here at jetphotos. I understand an office which only can be enforced online as a Burden. And if you are unlucky, you become a lightning conductor for people who are ten years younger than you, who are not here since 15 years but only since 10 years...
    who seem to share an airport with you...

    Nobody knows what I'm talkin about. Probably except 1. Back on topic.

    A new msfs for pc, that would be msfs XI (11). I know that, because I own and fly and edit (?!) the X . And I know at least two airports which urgently need an improvement, compared to the X version.
    1. SBBR Brasilia. Which could be developed as a fs/XI masterpiece. Sloped on all four ends. With the new 2014 Terminal layout, quite modern, Lohausen style (?) , or newer. And, what always suprises me, with at least one parking position for overseas jets like for example a TP-A339 (type heavy, 72 x 72 m). The fsx default SBBR has nothin, so I helped myself..
    2. SBBE Belém. plus at least one 'type heavy' parking position, which the real thing has.

    Btw, nobody has read my last entry here in the simulator section? Maraba is much too small for type B744. So what did I do. Brasilia - Maraba - Belém, with a VFR Maraba bypass (without landing). During the Brazil simulator journey, I learned to take the fuel for the return flight with me. You don't find that many alternates. What a 747 is good for.

    Fs/XI. Not without type 747, I'd say.
    LH also has a intercontinental history, the Hamburg - Düsseldorf - Shannon - NYC route, open since June 1st, 1955.
    A/C type: Lockheed Super Constellation.

    Very nice. How much am I going to have to pay for a computer capable of running it ?
    If it 'ain't broken........ Don't try to mend it !

    Running it? Whatever you have will work. Running it at a decent combination of graphics quality and frame rate? USD 1200 (just for the tower) if your definition of decent is not too tough.

    That's my guess.
