Nice to finally post on here proper. My name is Rob, from the UK and am fairly new to flight simming. I have been browsing (and posting as a guest) here for the past few days, and I'm sure you'll all come in useful as I expand my knowledge!
One quick question as well..... how do you add your own avatar? I can only find the default ones on the profile.
Cheers all 🙂
Scrub that, just found how to do it 😎
Welcome Chutzpah. 🍻
Welcome to the forums!
Loving the avatar. Where is it? Is there a bigger version?
Hi cheechm, it's a picture of Concorde on her return home after being taken out of service.
I'm from Bristol originally, so it was a memorable occasion. She flew around Bristol twice, going over Avon Gorge and Clifton Suspension Bridge before landing at Filton Airport - where she was in part built.
A very moving sight, and I love the picture.
Here's some links to a few bigger pictures, you'll quite often find a much larger version for sale, especially in Bristol - worth buying if it's a reasonable price because it'll look great on your wall! 😀
Yes, very nice pics. If there is a bad pic of Concorde in flight I don't want to know about it.
nice avatar. and by the way, Welcome!!! 😛 😀 😀
Nice pic Chutzpah 😉 and welcome 🍻 I see looking at your pic that there's quite a crowd gathered for the fly over.
Yep, that's Observatory Hill below, a good vantage point to look across the Avon Gorge, or if Concorde is flying over looking straight up! 😉
There were even more people at Filton Airport where she finally landed - they closed off the main road hours beforehand because they knew that thousands of people would travel there. The final estimate was 20,000 people (including guests within the aerodrome itself.... I wasn't lucky enough to win a ticket).
A little delay but never to late... 😉
Welcome to Fly Away 👍 😀
Welcome aboard, really like the Concord. 🙂
