My name on here is Sanuska, but I can't log in from the in-flight browser. Anyways, does FS2004 include the northern lights? I'm flying through Greenland (or was) and noticed them. It's really nice. THey come up every once in awhile.

Yes, it does, but the real world ones look better.

I've seen them but never from a high latitude location like Alaska.

I agree with GM, I'm surprised that they even included them. Some people won't ever be happy. I guess not until Flight Simulator is like The Matrix and we all have USB ports installed in our skulls. Rolling Eyes

I saw the same thing you guys are talking about. However, I saw one when I was on my Flight around the World 3. On of of my legs, I was flying though Antarctica from Base Marabio to Sydney in a 747. I saw the northern lights over there. Shouldn't it be called the "southern lights" in this case?
Love the Airbus A380. It's huge!

Yes, they are called aurora australis. They have similar properties to the Northern lights. Smile
